Riley's Catch Team

Riley’s Catch participates in 5 North Carolina High School B.A.S.S. Nation tournaments each year with the goal of qualifying for the Bassmaster High School National Championship. The team was founded in 2012 on the four pillars: Fun, Friendship, Faith, and Fishing.

Interested in getting involved? We have lots of ways that you can make an impact.
Riley’s Catch strives to offer each and every student the chance to become a better fisherman, build a stronger character, and truly be part of something bigger than themselves.

The Riley’s Catch fishing team is a high school fishing team founded from the tragic death of Riley Laymon. A week before Riley passed, he wrote a letter to his athletic director about starting a fishing team at his high school. Riley foresaw a nationally competitive fishing team, one with an inviting culture that brings students together by creating a fun, safe place to belong.
