2016 Event Report: By: Jim Behnken
The United States Bureau of Reclamation and Lago Rico Marinas hosted yet another wonderful C.A.S.T.for Kids event in 2016. High winds prevented the children from going out in boats to fish on this day. Luckily, the Lago Rico marinas were teaming with Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, and Crappie. Every single one of the 17 children who attended were able to catch fish. Our goal of every event we host is that every child is able to feel the thrill of catching a fish.
After our lunch of hamburgers and hotdogs, the children were extremely excited to receive their plaques with photos. Please come out and help us support the children of the Truth or Consequences New Mexico area when we host start 2017 event.
2012 Event Report:
It was a great event as usual; though the weather was cool and rainy. We were really pleased to have Albuquerque Area Manager Mike Hamman in attendance. Mike went out as a co-captain on a boat – he got soaking wet too!
