All events are subject to change due to weather conditions and other unpredictable situations.

We would like to extend much gratitude to the Oregon State Marine Board for funding three events that will take place on the healing waters of our magnificent state — a beautiful dazzling lake, a gorgeous jade river, and our majestic coastal waters! How grateful and fortunate we are to have these great opportunities in Southwestern Oregon! Participants will be able to enjoy fishing at Diamond Lake, where we can explore the lake from a boat or the shore, scenic boat rides and hiking around the lake will round out this adventure. Camping at Thielsen View Campground and enjoying a fresh meal cooked over the campfire will prepare you for the nighttime display of stars twinkling above. Ouzel Outfitters will graciously provide a thrilling whitewater rafting trip down the clear and crisp waters of the Wild & Scenic North Umpqua River. On the Oregon Coast, Sunset Bay State Park is the perfect location that provides opportunities to fish for salmon, hike, search for and explore tidepools and of course, sleep under the stars with the sounds of the ocean in our ears!

We look forward to connecting with veterans from Coos County, where we collaborate with another non-profit for veterans, Fishing Veterans of America. They have assisted with coordinating boats with charter services to assist us with bringing these opportunities to those that would benefit from the healing waters that are all around us and that we sometimes forget to stop and enjoy; and soak in the healing and calming effects of water, and gather strength of our own from its power! One veteran has already expressed his excitement by stating these events will be a blast!

All necessary gear for fishing will be provided.
