THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. Event organizer(s) have canceled this event to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
Fishing guides and wooden boat fans gather on the opening day of fishing season to celebrate and learn about McKenzie River history, wildlife and wooden boats! Come watch the boat parade, participate in fly-fishing demonstrations, meet the local river guides and enjoy a great lunch. Guides along the McKenzie River have been pioneers of fishing boat design for over a century and have found perfect construction styles and materials that make a McKenzie River Driftboat a well-known term on rivers around the world. Also, be sure to relax at Eagle Rock Lodge in Vida to the sound of the rushing water and the calling birds while soaking up the sun and serene natural setting.
