The Cascade Family Fly Fishers are actively involved in many volunteer events. For more detailed information feel free to contact the specific event coordinator. If you have any questions contact the Coordinator or Glenn Miller at 541-359-9522. Suggestions for future club volunteer efforts are always welcome.
You don’t need to be a fly tying or fly casting expert to help with any of these events. We will give you some basic training and you can learn as you go. We are always looking for more volunteers.
