What we're about

Welcome to the NW Steelhead & Salmon Fishing Group.

We are a group of anglers with a passion for sport fishing as well as conservation to ensure we have the best fishing available.

The purpose of our group is to connect people in the Portland and surrounding areas in numerous types of fishing and related activities.

Our meetups will include fishing trips, training seminars, volunteer activities, meetings of the Association of NW steelheaders, and any other type of fishing activity you would like.

Many of our members belong to the Association of NW Steelheaders so you will see a lot of announents for their meetings. Weather you’re a new fisherman or old, we welcome you. We hope to share the knowledge we have and learn from others who have fished the local waters for many years.

(We have a no tolerance policy for breaking the law, using inappropriate language, being rude or degrading to others, and/or using this site for any reason that does not support the purpose above. Any violators will be automatically kicked).

As a side note we encourage you to either show up to events you RSVP for or cancel your RSVP. If there is a paid event and you don't show up you will be charged if not cancelled by the deadline. Non payment will result in a kick from our group.

Happy Fishing.

Deschutes River Fishing/Camping Trip

Needs a location


Very excited for our annual Deschutes trip this year. Its Steelhead and Salmon bank fishing and camping trip along the Deschutes River at the mouth at the Columbia.
Wednesday the 14th to Sunday the 18th of September.

This is a fishing and camping trip with some general instruction and guidance, fishing for steelhead and salmon. We have a group spot reserved for 25 people. Some will be experienced and some will be new. I usually take 1 or 2 out each day and walk with them and show them how to catch fish. We do spinner making at the campground and talk about different methods. We always catch fish.

$20 per person to camp whether you stay one or all nights. Feel free to drop in if you don't want to camp but come hang out and learn spinner making.

We are in Group Camping spot, Loop G which sleeps 25. We will provide a map later. We are in site A (in the G Loop.)
