CFF will be auctioning off 1 seat on a full day Jet Sled Steelhead trip on the Clackamas River guided by Rob Crandall’s Watertime Outfitters. This full day trip (detailed description follows) must be taken during March or April of 2017. The winner will be joined by the winner of the raffle held at our December CFF meeting.
“With perfect water for the swung fly, chrome fish arriving daily and a mountain view the Clack is the perfect choice for the spey rod angler. Variety and options abound on the Clackamas. With the speed and versatility of the jet boat we can cover many different sections of the river often without other anglers; during low water times the drift boat comes in handy.
Guided jet boat trips cover the best waters of the river, timing our fishing locations to optimize our results. Full day trips may cover many miles or just a few depending on where the fish are; the mobility of the jet boats helps us “stay in the fish”. Hot riverside meals are served with your full day of fishing with the jet boat.
Trip includes guided jet boat trip, hot lunch, guide-favorite flies, equipment as needed, soft drinks and water. 1 or 2 persons, $575″
You are bidding for one 1 (one) seat on a full day trip, date to be negotiated with the raffle winner and WTO.
To submit a bid send an email to email@example.com including your full name, bid, return email, and contact phone number. Bids will be accepted in the order they are received. Bidding begins at $125 and will close at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2016.
