April 20, 2017 NFA Member Dana Bottcher, spoke at the April meeting. Dana guided for 30 years on the Deschutes River in Oregon. He spoke to prepare our club for the trip to the Deschutes in May which subsequently was cancelled due to high water. Nevertheless, Dana did a great job educating us on the sections of the river and how to fish them. His presentation can be viewed and downloaded here.

November 17, 2016 Lucas Young focused on some of the cool but relatively unexplored fishing opportunities around Washington that might be of interest to the members: ling cod fishing in the Sound, bull and cutthroat trout in the salt, and other warm water fisheries in the eastern part of the state like bass and carp around the middle reaches of the Columbia River.
