Broaden your fishing horizons and cast yourself into the salt water of the mighty Pacific! In this two day, Your Next Adventure! In Shore Kayaking Fishing will take the paddling and fishing skills taught in our Start Your Adventure! Kayak Fishing, and start adding the complexity of coastal waters, both in paddling and fishing. Day One, meet us bright and early out at Depoe Bay to start with essential coastal skills, explore the reefs and excellent fishing grounds outside of the harbor, primarily targeting rockfish. Depending on students’ progression and goals from the first day, Day Two will either continue focusing on fishing and paddling reefs accessed by a harbor, or kick it up a notch by transitioning to a small surf zone to work on launching, landing, and of course, fishing! Through both days, we will discuss and practice boat maneuvers and handling, fishing techniques, navigation, and more. Part class, part guided fishing trip, so come prepared to camp and catch your limit, and eat some tacos! We will be camping at Chinook Bend Campground, and we would love for you to join us in your tent or RV.
Kayaking and immersion gear rentals will be provided at a discounted rate. Transportation can be arranged if you are willing to head out a night early.
