Elochoman Slough Marina

The Elochoman Slough Marina is a focus of Wahkiakum County recreational and economic activity.  Boaters from Portland and Vancouver, as well as Ilwaco and Astoria, flock to the Elochoman Slough Marina because of its location,  its historical river town amenities, and the pristine rural character of the surrounding land.

Commercial and recreational fishermen frequent the Elochoman Slough Marina, especially during salmon fishing windows in the spring and the fall.  The marina also offers cabins, recreational vehicle hook-ups and dry land camping.


Mt. St Helens Bassmasters

The Mt. St. Helens Bass Masters club was formed in 1994 on the premise of stimulating interest in the sport of bass fishing. We have been successful in achieving this goal through our club meetings, tournament participation, family activities, and working in cooperation with other clubs and governmental agencies. Our members attend the Washington State Bass Federation Jamboree held every Memorial Day weekend and we host at least two Casting Kids events every year at a local venue.

Selling items such as Army Cots for $2.50, Canteens for 25 cents, and Wool Socks for 50 cents. The local women kept him supplied with used grocery bags.
