When going on a trip the two most important things to bring are your LICENSE AND RAIN GEAR.


License: You can purchase a one-day license for $17.50. Licenses are available at sporting goods stores, Fred Meyers and Bi-Mart. Make sure the clerk gives you the catch record card with your license. Sometimes the person behind the counter does not know what you need.

Clothing: Dress in layers to prepare for any weather. Wind is common, especially on the Columbia River. I usually start my day wearing a sweatshirt, hat, coat, and raingear. Quality raingear is an absolute necessity. Overdress and you can always shed layers throughout the day.
