We have our monthly meeting coming up on April 27th, 2015. A discussion has begun about changing our meeting location. We are having our meeting at the regular location at the North Bend Public Library and will be discussing a change of venue for the monthly meeting. We will see everyone there at 7:00pm!
Also, we are getting warmed up for our annual Tenmile Open. This is our 34th year having this tournament and with the current weights being brought to the scales at Tenmile Lakes, this year could see record weights. Plan ahead to join us August 1st and 2nd at Tenmile Lakes for the 34th Tenmile Open and our annual BBQ Chicken Dinner with the Fisherman's Raffle, where all proceeds go towards our scholarships for local high school students. It is never too early to get your entry in to us. We have seen record numbers for competitors at all of the open tournaments this year on Tenmile Lakes. Get your entry in and reserve your spot!
On another note, the Umpqua Valley Bassmasters are having their annual 'Bassin for Bucks" tournament on May 2nd, 2015. You can get all of the information regarding this tournament at the Umpqua Valley Bassmasters website.

It was a good day for a tournament at Tahkenitch Lake. We had clear and warm weather until the wind started to blow. Most of us are used to the wind on Tahkenitch Lake. In fact the wind can turn on the bite at times. We had an awesome turnout with 19 boats! Thank you to everyone who showed up. First place went to Harvey Banker and Joe Hunter with 18.86#s and also they had the big fish of the tournament with a 5.31# pig. Second place went to Mike Boyd and Mack Roundsaville with 15.62#s and a big fish of 4.87#. Third place went to Ron Greene and Shaun Cook with 14.45#s and a big fish weighing 4.59#. The rest of the preliminary results are posted below. Great job guys!
