More about our events:

Demo Day!

Demo Day is the biggest event we put on for the public, where every boat in our fleet will be on the beach ready to be tested. We are happy to announce that the site where we will be hosting Demo Day will be at North Landing Campground. On top of having WRO’s knowledgeable staff on site, there will also be company reps on site that will be more than happy to answer any question about the boats they represent. We hope to see everyone out there!

Women Simply Outdoors

These sessions are meant to be a fun and educational introduction for women to various outdoor activities, to help foster an active outdoor lifestyle for all. We will have representatives from organizations, businesses or clubs present to build the connections needed to get involved in something you've always been curious about.

Fly Fishing Classes

WRO will hold classes that teach the art of fly fishing. Our introductory 101 class is free to attend, so we encourage people to take advantage of this awesome opportunity.  In our 201 class we will be using WRO’s fleet to properly instruct how to cast from a kayak. No experience is needed to sign up for either class; however, we recommend that the 101 class be taken before the 201 class. Equipment will be provided by WRO for both classes so all you need to bring is a thirst to learn. Call WRO for more details and we hope to see everyone fly fishing with their new skills!

Water Way Cleanups

We partner with many foundations to help provide a cleaner waterway system for everyone! If you or a company have a project for a waterway cleanup and would like to partner with WRO feel free to call the shop and we’d be more than happy to hear you out and help if possible! We’re always looking to help out our community for both the people and the animals that call this place home!


Demo on Demand

We are proud to announce for the 2016 year we will now be hosting weekend long demos at Wild River for you to try that boat you’ve been eyeing for a while. Under the care of our experienced staff you can get firsthand experience on each of the boats and ask the staff questions that you may want to know before you take it on its maiden voyage! Come join us on a fun filled weekend!

First Cast

Hobie kayaks are fantastic vessels that are easy to pick up and go whenever you have that itch to go fish! If you have any doubts about it we are proud to introduce the Hobie First Cast Program as an easy way to try out one of the best fishing kayaks on the market! You would go out with some local fishing gentlemen for some good times, better stories, and a new path for adventures to come that you have yet to think of! Contact the shop for information about this awesome program.
