THIS COULD BE YOUR CLUB

The Oregon Bass & Panfish Club holds meetings on the fourth Thursday of each month (some exceptions) starting at 7:00 p.m., at the East Portland Community Center, 740 SE 106th, Portland, Oregon. Visitors are welcome! The club currently has more than 230 members. The club was formed in 1958 and is the largest nonprofit warmwater fishing organization in Oregon.

MEMBER ACTIVITIES

* Club meetings each month have programs to help you improve your fishing know how. Drawings for tackle and prizes are held at every meeting.

* A "dry clinic" at a spring club meeting puts you with experts who will answer your questions and help you improve your angling skills.

* Annual awards are presented at the January meeting for the best fish of nine (9) species in both Junior and Senior Divisions.

* Minimum length awards are also presented to members who qualify.

* Activities include annual fishing contests, camp-outs, volunteer projects, picnics and fish-ins. You get great camaraderie along with a fun experience.

* A monthly bulletin is emailed or mailed to every member.

YOU CAN FEEL GOOD HELPING

Members can be as active they want on club projects. You can assist with improving warmwater fishing. Over the years, club members have assisted with activities to improve warmwater fishing, such as building fish habitat at Blue Lake (East Multnomah County), providing better handicap access at St. Louis Ponds near Woodburn), developing "Webster Pond" and "Duemovich Bridge" (both on Sauvie Island), renovating "Hartmand Pond" (formerly Wakeena Pond next to Benson Lake on I-84 East) from a salmon rearing facility to a warmwater fishery, including planting fish habitat and building a fishing dock.  The club continually seeks additional places in Oregon where improvements can be made.  With club volunteers, we help youth develop an appreciation for fishing and the outdoor water resource. 

YOUR MEMBERSHIP IS REASONABLE

See the dues schedule on the application.

THE CLUB'S OBJECTIVES

To encourage and stimulate interest in angling for warmwater game fish; to perpetuate warmwater species in waters that are adaptable; to create better fishing through club efforts and cooperation with other organizations and agencies; to assist in the observation and enforcement of game laws; and to fight pollution in all the waters of Oregon.
