Hooked on Family Fishing Day

Join a family day of fishing at 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 FAQs

1What is the age range for youth?
The majority of youth participants in previous years ranged from ages 7-12. However, this event is open to all ages!
2What is included in the cost?
Two nights lodging in cabin bunks, five meals (Friday dinner through Sunday breakfast), and all weekend sessions and activities.
3Do I need to bring fishing gear?
Nope! We will provide all necessary fishing equipment for the weekend. This event is geared toward families with little to no experience, so we do not expect you to bring any of your own gear.
4What is lodging like at Camp Angelos?
Families will be staying in shared (co-ed) cabins. This means you will get to stay together as a family, but you will be housed together with another family. All cabins are heated and handicapped accessible. If you have any concerns or questions about this arrangement, please contact us.
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.
