USA National Fly Fishing Competition

The USA National Fly Fishing Competition will be coming to Bend Oregon on October 18-20.  The best competitive fly fishers will be competing for a place on the USA team.  The winners will get to represent our country at the World Championships.

Competitors will fish both the Crooked and Deschutes rivers as well as East and Lava lakes.  In order to make this a smashing success, we will need some volunteers.  Volunteer duties involve measuring the fish that each angler catches and recording it on a score sheet.  You don't have to be a great fisherperson to help out, you just need to be able to measure a fish that is in a measuring tray and record the info on the score sheet.  Trust me, the angler will help you get the fish into the tray.  On the lakes we will need volunteers who can drive a power boat, net the fish and record the length.

COF and the Sunriver Anglers have helped out at three previous regional events in Bend. Everyone who participated really had a great time and had a chance to learn how to fish our waters from some of the best fishermen in the country.

If you would be willing to be a competitor or volunteer and give yourself a chance to really learn some cutting edge fishing techniques, please contact Matt Paluch at, 541-639-2539.
