let them take risk, for God sake, let them get lost, sun burnt, stranded, drowned,
eaten by bears, buried alive under avalanches -

2016 ORC Update!!

Ok guys, I need to drop in and let you all know where we stand. A handful of NWKA people who have been involved in planning the ORC for several years now are working to get details lined up.  We’re not quite ready to make an official announcement yet for the ORC, simply because we’re still working on getting a lot of the big details hammered out, such as main sponsors, top prizes, format, etc.  Here’s what I can say so far:

-The tournament is going to be held on July 9th at Depoe Bay, OR.

-The tournament format will be a "Best of 4 Slam".     You total weight of your single best catch for each of the following species lingcod, cabezon, rockfish and greenling.  Partial slams will be considered.

-The tournament HQ is going to be at Chinook Bend Campground - the same place as in years past.

-Next Adventure is not the point of contact for information pertaining to the Oregon Rockfish Classic, NWKA is.

-Registration for the event is not yet available. We're working on setting up a system for registration fees as well as deciding on a price.

-If you have already paid your registration for the event through Next Adventure's website prior to 4/18 you should be getting a refund very soon. If you don't see a refund by 4/25 call the shop and they can help.

-We understand that there are a lot of

There are many ways to catch Spring Chinook in Portland’s waterways. Many big fish are taken locally using various techniques
such as drifting eggs, trolling cut plug herring, Quick Fish, Flat Fish and Salmon Spinners.  However, my personal favorite and
most deadly technique is using Prawn Spinners. They are  deadly for much of the springtime run, and their efficiency in taking
large salmon, increases as spring passes through.

The Rig
The job of this rig is to get your bait down to where the salmon are and allow your herring to spin freely.

Kayak trolling can be a real drag….  No, not that kind of drag.  Rather, the kind of drag that makes you wish you had a rudder and
outdrive.  While 6oz of weight and a spinning herring
are manageable, the addition of a flasher or dodger can easily prove to be too much.  Enter the KoneZone flasher.  With its slow roll and
reduced drag, the KoneZone flasher is perfectly
suited to kayak trolling.

Heres how I decide to “GO” or not..

Keep in mind that these are just forecasts, they can be much better and they can be much worse.  With experience, and access to several sources, you will get better and better at finding those
“doable” days.  Keep in mind if you only fish when the forecast is  “absolutely perfect” you won’t fish much.  Sometimes you just need make an educated guess and “roll the dice”,  heading to the
coast to decide if its “doable” when you get there.

Kayak downrigger fishing just works - it works even better thanks to Scotty’s Depthmaster downrigger. It’s is a well-built workhorse that has no problem handling a big weight andis really easy to operate. I’ve spent over 6 months using the Depthmaster putting it through some of the nastiest to some of the best conditions that Puget Sound and various lakes could muster up and after it all there’s no other way I’d downrigger fish from my kayak.
