Heroes on the water, Portland Chapter is presenting a bass event at Willamette Park for our veterans.
On September 27th, we will be hosting 8 to 10 of our areas local heroes here in dowtown Portland.

"What can I do to help?" you ask.

You can be:

1)  a fisherman guide to a vet. Use your experience to help a wounded Warrior face the challeges of the water and himself
2)  a shore crew action figure. Help run the machine that supports those on the water. Whether it be food prep, Tackle set up, or organization crew, the need is there. if you are helping on land, that frees up a HOW staff to be on the water.

3) be the local expert and teach our Lads and Lasses what the best techniques and bait are best for the certain stretch of water.

WHATEVER YOU DO, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT HELPS THOSE WHO HAVE KEPT US SAFE IN A WORLD THAT IS INCREASINGLY UNSAFE. A few hours of your time helps us all repay the debt that we owe them and theirs.

Hope to see you on the water,

Tight lines.

You and Ben have all that water down pretty good. I guess we'll have to live with half the package. Thank you Sam.

We have decided to move up River. To close to the algae bloom for us. We will be doing a float from Cedar Oak boat ramp to George Rogers park. Focusing on bass and sturgeon.

I will be there too.  Do we need boats? 
I would much rather be up a creek without a paddle than down one.

Well, we weren't going to let a little toxic algae steal all our fun, so we changed venues to Nehalem Bay for some crab. Crabbing was pretty slow for what it should be this time of year. We did get enough to send all the Veterans home with at least 1.

The salmon were jumping everywhere, and between pulls on the pots the guys that had their tags were getting action.

Our Veteran volunteer Dennis had a particularly awesome day. Nate gave him one of his patented spinners and a few pointers and sent him out on the water. A few minutes later we all heard a noise from the bay. It sounded like cold blooded murder, but it was just Dennis letting out his adrenalin after getting his first kayak salmon. A beauty 37 inch 30lb king. Then he went out after lunch and boated a coho like it was no big deal.

Thanks to all the Veterans and Volunteers for being flexible on the venue change and for making it out there with us.

This event this wraps up our 2014 schedule. From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU to ALL the volunteers that helped make this such a successful year for Heroes On the Water. Thanks to all the Veterans that made it out with us, we hope you had an awesome time and please help spread the word.

If you are looking into or curious about volunteering next year, shoot us a message or speak with some of our current volunteers about it. It is a great way to give back and a it is a lot of fun.
