CHINOOK SHOWDOWN SPRING SALMON DERBY
Springer season is upon us, which means it's time for Next Adventure's Chinook Showdown! Open to kayak (and SUP) anglers of all ages, all proceeds from this fun event benefit the Portland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW). Join us for a day of great company, great food, and (with luck) great fishing.

Your registration fee includes entry into derby and food/refreshments at weigh in. Additional non-angler meal tickets will be available for friends and family, again benefiting HOW.

Awards will be given for Biggest Overall Fish, Biggest Limit, and Top Finishing Junior Angler. All awards are determined by weight.  Fishing is open to the entire Columbia watershed however day-of waivers will need to be returned to Sellwood Park.

NOTE: All anglers must complete and return a liability waiver prior to event. Waivers may be returned by mail or in person at the Next Adventure PSC (early registration only), or at day-of registration at Sellwood Riverfront Park from 6-8am. There will be no required event check-in if pre-registered with a Waiver received; simply go fish and bring your catch to the PSC for weigh in between 12am and 3pm. Fish MUST be gilled and gutted (aka cleaned but not filleted) prior to weigh in.

Sign up before March 31th to save $10 on registration! April 1st and later, will be $30.

Weigh in, food, and award ceremony will take place at the Next Adventure Portland Paddle Sports Center To keep the party atmosphere, we will be offering 15% off in-stock items (excluding boats and electronics). Please use offsite/street parking for this event.

I meant to mention that it appears that the Next Adventure graphics department just "recycled" the old graphic header from 2020. This event is indeed for April 9th, 2022.

This must be a Willamette  only thing since the Columbia closes on the sixth.

You may fish anywhere that it is legally permissible to retain a fish, as long as you have it back to the weigh in point by the time set forth in the tourney rules.

Anybody interested in a Springer Seminar?  If so, speak up.  Also let me know what night of the week you'd want it on.

Thanks!

I would love one! Hopefully taking my 1st swing at it on Saturday before the kayak demo.

I am guessing you would do this at NA? I don't live near Portland so probably not worthy of counting my vote.

Now if you felt so inclined to PM me some tips and tricks that would be super cool!! I will be coming up for the Chinook Showdown.

Stop and chat at the kayak demo.  I'll try to get you pointed in the right direction.  I'll be working talking about Daiwa gear there.

We're a week away so I'm going to give this a bump. I hoping to see a lot of fish caught and some great prizes won this year.

Thanks,
Anthony

Definitely going. Has anyone found the waiver they talk about? I am not planning on fishing at Sellwood and hoping to get that turned in before the event.

Where are folk planning on launching? I am leaning toward Fred's/Cathedral/Botton of the Channel. Maybe Gilbert River, but that is a long drive.
