It's time to rediscover your Oregon fly fishing roots and hit the Oregon Trout Trail. Starting on May 22nd, if you venture out to do some Trout fishing keep a photographic record of your catch and see if you can collect photos of at least 6 of the native Trout species found in Oregon.

It's really easy. Register on the Oregon Trout Trail registation page and you will receive an email with a copy of the rules and instuctions for registering your catches. Catch and carefully release 6 native Trout species in the state of Oregon. Document the date, location and species of each encounter. Register your accomplishment to received a Certificate of Completion of the Oregon Trout Trail.
