The National Semi Finals for District hosted by The Bass Federation of Oregon (TBF). This event was for both Oregon and Washington State. The event began Wednesday with pre fish going through Friday with anglers from Oregon and Washington. Friday evening, October 6th we held registration with a banquet of food and sodas while getting the TBF shirts to all anglers, going over the tournament rules as well as the pairings for the 2-day tournament.
We could not have asked for better weather this time of year both days temperatures in the mid 70’s to 80’s blue skies and no wind the anglers could hardly wait to get on the water. The Columbia River was flat and calm for both days. We don’t see the river quite this calm very often.
The fishing was excellent on both days with exceptional weights brought in. Our first day leader weighed in 18.92 lbs. on the pro side for Oregon. On the second day the leader pro side of Washington State weighed in 19.14 lbs. On the AM side day one leader of Washington weighed in 15.19 lbs. And the second day leader of Oregon for the AM weighed in 14.99 lbs.
We had 38 PROs and 38 co-anglers that qualified for this event from both states.
Congratulations to the overall winners, Dan Jordon – PRO – Oregon with total 2-day weight of 33.10 lbs.
and Ronald Faircloth – AM – Oregon with total 2-day weight of 27.99 lbs.
We would like to congratulate Dan Jordon and Ronald Faircloth and from the state of Washington Chris Lambert and Joel Alinen as these four will be representing our states at the TBF Nationals.
