Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel's Fly-Fishing Lessons
Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel offers free fly fish lessons. Guests can take advantage of the hotel's waterfront location in downtown Portland with Fly Fish Fridays. The weekly lesson is taught by the hotel's assistant general manager – an avid fly fisherman – and encourages guests to get outside and learn to cast, drift, tie flies, and eventually reel in the big one. The lesson takes place on the hotel's adjacent lawn, but for those who want to put their new knowledge into action, the hotel's concierge is on hand to book fly fishing excursions out to one of the surrounding rivers.
