Let's Go Fishing! program

Time is invested in teaching fishing skills to youth for a lifetime of pleasure.

It's All About The KIDS

Teaching youth the skills required to catch fish and live a productive life.

Youth Fishing Program

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.

In 2018 we began providing fishing skills training and fishing opportunities at Lake Carnegie in Highland Park from June through September each year.

Program Goal

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 spend their time indulging in video games. 


Our 501(c)(3) 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 youth fishing skills events.
