Father's Day Scavenger Hunt

Father's Day Scavenger Hunt

2023 Details TBA

We have lots of updates to do on this page, but here is the jist. Big event on Saturday with tons of seminars, casting and lecture. Good fun, food, beer, and fellowship. Sunday, Father's Day, we are hosting a scaled back version of the Father's Day Scavenger Hunt we've done in the past. Less species, 1 day, fun for all, and we'll have a great BBQ at the lodge Sunday afternoon.

Father's Day Scavenger Hunt

Teams of (2) anglers will attempt to complete as many unique catches off the species list as possible. It's a fun challenge and nobody is expecting to get them all. Just do your best and have fun! Teams will use their cell phone to video document each catch. As teams submit catches to the tournament platform, videos will populate in real time for both the judges and competing teams. A live leaderboard will be in your pocket. It's a lot of fun to see real time what other teams are catching!

  • $ Price TBA per team (2 person teams)
  • $ Price TBA Father/Kid Discount (2 person team composed of father w/ son or daughter fish OR anglers fishing with an angler 17 years and younger).
  • June 18th, 2023

Family Fun Father's Day Event

Clean family fun. That's what this event is all about. Spend the weekend chasing various species around the great state of Washington! This is an "all for fun" event that just happens to have some amazing sponsors that have donated a really incredible prize package. Fish super hard... or go easy. Who cares. By the end of this event you'll have increased your fishing knowledge exponentially and have a really good shot at taking home a new fly rod or other valuable tackle.

The closing event on Father's Day is a really fun way to spend time around other anglers that pursued the same exact list of species you did all weekend. It's a friendly, fun, and welcoming environment.

Guided Trip with Joe Rotter from Red's Fly Shop - The "Average Joe's" Award

So you fished hard but still wound up in the middle of the pack, with only 4 species. You can still win a guided trip with Joe Rotter from Red's! The team that finishes in the dead middle wins a guided trip, in the event of a tie we'll have a drawing on Sunday at the closing ceremony.

Everyone is a Winner!

While there will be some serious hardware divy'd up among the winning teams, our goal is for everyone to gain some value from the event regardless if they catch 15 species or only a single fish for the weekend. We'll give out ample door prizes on Sunday at the closing ceremony, and this is the time where you can meet and learn from our staff that is also fishing in the event. We'll tell you everything! Please trust us to put on a great event, you won't be disapointed.
