Hooked On Camp Fishing Derby Fundraiser

Spots are going quickly for Hooked on Camp Fishing Derby, 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.

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.

Fees are $2,000 per boat or $1,000 per angler ($900 is tax deductible). The derby is limited to 20 anglers. Ten experienced guides donate their time, boat, gas, and tackle.
