"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. for Kids to create outdoor recreation opportunities 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."
