Action Alert: GillnetsMost of you know that Oregon is in rulemaking and Washington is in policy development to change the status quo harvest and hatchery management in the Lower Columbia River. There are several critical meetings ahead between us and the finish line. Please join us and help support this important reform!
14th Annual Buoy-10 Salmon Challenge
The 14th Annual NSIA Buoy-10 Salmon Challenge is set for August 15-16, 2013. The event takes place in Astoria, Or and Camp Rilea's Warrior Hall is the headquarter for the derby. This year is forecast to be the best Fall Chinook run in 10 years. The combined number of Fall Chinook and Coho leads us to expect almost 1 million salmon to enter the mouth of the Columbia this fall. Registration is OPEN now! The Biggest Fish prize is $1000 and the 2nd Biggest Fish prize is $500. There are lots of other prizes available for teams that will be awarded at an awards dinner on Friday, August 16. In addition, the event will include a silent auction and bucket raffle. A $100 per angler entry fee is all that is needed to register.
