Go fishing! Change a life!

Hooked on Camp Fishing Derby is a fundraiser for Camp Blue Skies that offers anglers the exclusive opportunity to fish on Lake Broyhill, a pristine 140-acre lake teeming with largemouth bass and bream.

Lake Broyhill is part of YMCA Camp Harrison which serves as the North Carolina home of Camp Blue Skies, 5-day, 4-night camps that enhance the lives of adults with developmental disabilities through recreation, socialization and life skills education.

All proceeds provide financial assistance for campers by bridging the gap between tuition rate and the true cost per camper. Camp Blue Skies can accommodate 65 campers at each session. This year’s derby goal is $25,000 which will help cover expenses for about 31 campers.

Fee: $2,000 per boat or $1,000 per angler ($900 per person is tax deductible).

  • The derby is limited to 20 anglers; 10 experienced guides donate their time, boat, gas, and tackle.
  • Thursday evening (optional) dinner and overnight accommodations in a Camp Harrison cabin.
  • Friday sunrise breakfast and derby overview.
  • 8 a.m. shotgun start, fish until noon.
  • BBQ lunch, remarks and awards such as “Largest Largemouth Bass,” “Largest Bluegill,” “Most Fish Caught by a Team.”
  • Depart at 2 p.m.

Bring a client, co-worker, friend, child or grandchild to double the fun!
