We at the Let’s Go Fishing! Program are dedicated to provide opportunities to advance at-risk youth throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area. We offer activities to develop relationships and skills that will empower our youth to grow into productive adults. Our Annual Trout Fishing Derby has reached over 250 children per year. Come join us in May for a wonderful event for all ages. Sponsored by the members of the Conway Sportsman Club.
Starting in 2018 we are providing fishing skills training and fishing opportunities in Lake Carnegie in Highland Park from June through October each year.
The program is motivated by families seeking to strengthen their interpersonal relationship with sibling through fishing. The experience gained from the preparation, execution and follow through of the annual fishing derby has convinced us that sport fishing can fill the relational void affecting the urban family. The void is demonstrated through irresponsible behavior, dependence on social welfare systems, violence in the home and community. Young adults struggle with maturity, confusion, as they waist time indulging in video games.
Our 501(c) is currently under the authority of the Eastminster Presbyterian Church located in Pittsburgh, PA. All donations that are designated to the "Let's Go Fishing! Program " is credited to the program for expenses related directly to these events.
List of events planned for the upcoming year are shown below. Any changes in these dates will be cocommunicated via an email to those who subscribes to this site.
Send us a message if you have any questions about our events, program funding or additional youth services.
