2021 Event Changes

Hooked on Family Fishing Day

In order to comply with Covid-19 regulations, we've adapted Family Fish Camp to be a one-day event this year. Hooked on Family Fishing Day is completely free and is offered only to our scholarship families from 2020. The day will consist of fishing activities, crafts, educational resources, and lunch! We are excited to offer this new event and we hope that it will continue in the future alongside the return of Family Fish Camp.

Family Fish Camp

Join a family weekend of fishing and lodging at cozy Camp Angelos on the Sandy River. Family Fish Camp is for families who want to learn more about how to jump-start their fishing experiences in the PNW. Passionate, experienced anglers teach essential skills for all ages, and your family will have the opportunity to recreate in the great outdoors while building connections in the community.

Kids and adults can fish the pond, play games, plan their next fishing adventure, and participate in educational activities such as fish identification, casting and reeling, angler ethics and regulations, gear and equipment, water quality testing, and fish art projects.


Family Fish Camp is located at Camp Angelos along the Sandy River in Corbett, OR. Spend a weekend living a summer camp experience – sleep in cabin bunks, dine in the lodge cafeteria, and stargaze in the secluded forest along the rushing river. All cabins are heated and handicapped accessible. Families will be housed together alongside other families attending the camp. This means that cabins are shared and co-ed. Please contact us with any questions or concerns regarding this arrangement.

5When does the camp begin on Friday?
In previous years, check in began at 5 pm and dinner started at 6:30. Family Fish Camp 2020 will most likely follow a similar schedule. We may be able to accommodate you if you need to arrive later on Friday evening.
6When does the camp end on Sunday?
Sunday morning activities will consist of breakfast, the option to continue fishing, and future adventure planning. Camp will wrap up by late morning, so plan on being out by noon.
7What will the weather be like?
March in Oregon can be quite rainy. The Steelheaders fish the rivers of Oregon rain or shine year round, so you can too! Dress for wet and cold weather.
