Want to learn fishing technique or brush up on skills? On February 27, don’t miss the Steelehead Fishing Clinic, hosted by local fisherman, Greg Short. The summer steelehead migration is just around the corner, so now is the perfect time to hone your fishing skills!

 Local fisherman Greg Short and the Hood River Watershed Group are hosting their annual Steelhead and Spring Chinook Fishing one-day clinic.

The day will begin inside, learning a variety of fishing techniques including knot tying, bait and tackle, and rules and regulations; the rest of the day will be spent outside utilizing new and improved fishing skills. Both beginners and experts alike will benefit from Short’s wide array of fishing knowledge. 
The class will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27. An Oregon fishing license (daily or annual) will be required for anyone 14 years or older to participate in on-the-river practice. Loaner rods and gear will be available.
