McCoy Park, Portland, OR

This city-wide event focuses on reaching a targeted 200 inner-city youth audience. The Celebration of Wild Steelhead brings all communities together for one day to share and promote the spirit of wild steelhead and what conservation means to the next generation. Soul River is hosting this free event in an urban park within Portland that is surrounded by a diverse neighborhood of low-income and income-restricted housing. We provide small open-house style clinics that teach about conservation, wild fish, and fly fishing.

Soul River invites partnerships from local agencies and organizations as well as corporate sponsorships in order to pull off this event. Each participating youth between 10-18 years old gets a fly rod, as well!
