So you have tried fishing from the bank or a motor boat but want to get closer and be quieter? Dreamed of targeting a fall Chinook or a behemoth sturgeon from the comfort and flexibility of a kayak, but are not ready to jump into the deep end? Come get your line wet, with support from Wilderness Systems Pro-Team Members and Next Adventure Fishing Guides and Instructors. So much knowledge!
The Kayak Fishing demo program gets you on the water with a guide and instructor to demo on of our various fishing kayak models, while targeting one of various fisheries legendary to the Pacific Northwest. We carry a wide range of models from premier fishing brands like Eddyline, Wilderness Systems, Ocean Kayak, Perception, Old Town and Hobie. Depending on when you saddle up with your rod and reel, we may be targeting sturgeon, bass, or even a springer salmon. We like to fish for what's biting. Your experience will introduce boat features, an education on basic rigging, kayak fishing tactics, and of course, the opportunity to fish! After consulting with your guide on what species we will be going after, bring your favorite rod and we will provide the tackle. If you do not happen to have a rod, we will have a limited selection of gear available to demo. We promise, you'll be hooked.
We will launch from our Scappoose Bay Paddling Center to hit the run in
Better yet, if you buy any 2016 fishing kayak within ONE WEEK of your Demo Day, we will knock a $100 off your boat! That means you get a free class and a great deal! Just to ice the cake, we will also give you 10% off all your accessories, and rig your boat for free. It's our gift to you to get you fishing right!
