Tillamook Estuaries Partnership Hosts: 8th Annual Bounty of the Bay Fundraiser and Fishing Tournament
Fishing enthusiasts gather JUNE 3-4, for the Annual Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) Bounty on the Bay. Now in its eighth year, Bounty on the Bay has become one of the most anticipated spring events for anglers on the North Coast.
This weekend event highlights the best Tillamook Bay has to offer: amazing scenery, humongous fish, great local food, and jovial company. Now an anticipated tradition, Bounty on the Bay features two days of revelry: kicking off on Friday night with a Dinner and Salmon Fishing Demonstration, featuring tips that are bound to come in handy during Saturday’s Premier Fishing Tournament, and the grande finale: a sumptuous Seafood Feast (with fish donated by long time supporter Pacific Seafood and Oyster), Awards Ceremony, and Silent Auction.
Both events take place at the historic Old Mill in Garibaldi. TEP is proud to present local pros John Kirby and Bob Rees who will lead the Salmon Fishing Demo on Friday night during the BBQ Pork Dinner, followed by our esteemed guest speaker, Jim Martin (former Chief of Fisheries, ODFW) on Saturday night. This year is not just for the fishermen- those interested in a different bay adventure can participate in a guided kayak tour of the Garibaldi harbor. This action-packed weekend will raise vital funds to support TEP’s local grant program that encourages research, habitat restoration, and education projects throughout Tillamook County.
Registration is open and necessary for all facets of the event.
Please register by May 31st! Registration forms are available online by going to www.tbnep.org or, to obtain more information regarding the event, contact Sierra Lauder by phone at (503) 322-2222 or by email at Bounty@tbnep.org.
This annual fundraiser supports TEP’s efforts to implement the Tillamook Bay Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). ##
