Hear what our current partners have to say about why they support C.A.S.T.…



lews fishing logoThe C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation hosts events nationally to provide exposure to children, who may not otherwise get the opportunity, to the sport of fishing and the great outdoors. Lew’s Fishing Tackle is proud to be a sponsor and a small part of what the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation stands for and accomplishes.  The smiles on the kids faces say enough for us and we know they are receiving a gift that can last a lifetime.


Established in 1947, Flambeau Outdoors has stood on a legacy of providing anglers with tackle organization solutions that make a day on the water ready for success. From innovative technologies for advanced anglers to a kid’s first tackle box, we are proud to support future generations of memories made in the great outdoors through C.A.S.T. for Kids. Molded American passion, Flambeau believes the core of the fishing passion starts with the glint in a kid’s eye when that first fish bites.    

The Bureau of Reclamation

Bureau of Reclamation The Bureau of Reclamation sponsored the first C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation Fishing Event in 1992. Reclamation has continued to work with C.A.S.T. to make outdoor recreation on our beautiful Reservoirs accessible to all citizens, especially those who are most often unable to participate in fishing and boating activities. It’s a carefree day that’s just for the children and their families. When you see an empty wheelchair on the shore, you know that something special is happening for that child and their families.

gary yamamoto baitsI love to be  a supporter of people and their families.  God blessed us to be able to share our lives with children and their parents–and what better way, but through CAST.  The organization is formed on like minded people wanting to help and share our love of fishing to each and all in need of support to achieve their dream of the sport.

What better way to help turn around the lives of veterans and military personnel (and their families) by with an activity that we all love?”
