That’s right, a brand new Ray’s River Dories Rogue drift boat, complete with a Baker Trailer and a pair of Sawyer Lite Oars could be yours for just $100! All proceeds from this raffle will go to support the work of our River Stewards on the Deschutes River to improve water quality and protect habitat for native fish, including bull trout!
Ray’s River Dories has been the high water mark for wooden drift boats since they got started in Portland, OR in 1975. Ray’s is known for its rich history of combining expert craftsmanship with in-depth river knowledge to deliver the finest in water-ready boats in the Pacific Northwest. Ray’s builds beautiful, legacy-grade boats that are ready to explore.
This 17’x54” Rogue River Drift boats are designed with our big, western, whitewater rivers in mind. They’re quick handling and highly maneuverable boats that stay dry and safe with their high stern and flared sides, even in whitewater. This Rogue can comfortably carry three people and overnight camping gear or four people and light gear. This is the perfect boat for an oars person with fly anglers casting both fore and aft. A wood boat is quiet in the water, warm during the winter months, always beautiful to look and a pleasure to row.
The boat alone is special, but this raffle gets even better. The drift boat comes ready to rock with a brand new, galvanized Baker Trailer, commonly acknowledged as the finest boat trailers in the Northwest.
To make the boat perfect, our good friends at Sawyer Paddles and Oars included a set of their legendary wood oars. These 9’ Sawyer Lite Oars are made from straight grain Douglas Fir and come standard with rope wrap, rubber stops, and kevlar protected tips. There isn’t anything as sweet as the feeling of this boat, with these oars drifting down your homewaters.
Don’t miss your chance to own this one of a kind boat and support the revival of abundant wild fish on the Deschutes River.
A huge thank you to our incredibly generous donors: Ray’s River Dories & Sawyer Paddles & Oars. Please support the businesses that support healthy homewaters and abundant native fish!
How does it work? Native Fish Society is selling 250 raffle tickets for $100 each. We’ll draw the lucky winner on December 1st and they’ll get the drift boat of their dreams!
Every penny we raise in this campaign will support our work protecting and recovering wild, native fish in their Northwest homewaters. So, no matter what, you're giving a boost to wild salmon and steelhead, not to mention your fishing mojo.
*Does not include travel to Oregon to pick up drift boat, trailer, or oars.
