Jun. 2nd, 2017 - Jun. 3rd, 2017 directions
Bounty on the Bay is a 2-day, signature salmon fishing event and tournament that includes a silent auction and fantastic food! Bounty on the Bay is a fundraiser for the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership and all proceeds from the event go to the restoration and conservation of Tillamook County’s estuaries and salmon habitat.
Bounty on the Bay offers folks the opportunity to fish with a guide thanks to our boat captains who generously donate their time and knowledge of the bay in support of this event and the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership. Thank you so much to our boat captains and guides for 2017:
