This is a Fishing Kids event, by the City of Lakewood, designed to provide all children the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing.

The CAST for Kids Foundation will be holding all 2021 events in compliance with state and local guidelines for Covid-19.  We will be following these guidelines for the safety, health and well-being of our participants, families, volunteers and staff.  If we can hold an event according to state guidelines, as states phase in their re-opening, we will. We encourage all in attendance to use precautionary measures like masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizers for the safety of our participants and other guests. Our events may look different than they have in the past. Lunch and awards may be broken into separate groups to enhance social distancing. We are confident we have figured out how to provide a safe, relaxing, fun environment for everyone to enjoy at CAST for Kids events in 2021! However, it will be impossible to guarantee the safety of all CAST participants and volunteers. Please consider each of your individual risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic when making your decision to attend any CAST event.

The Ray Evans Memorial Fishing Event for Kids honors former resident and WWII hero Ray Evans. He and his wife Dottie have been long-time supporters of our local fishing event through their association with Trout Unlimited. Ray was a Navy Cross recipient for his heroic actions during the battle of Guadalcanal. Being on the water and doing water-based activities always brought a smile to his face. The only thing that made him even happier was to see children & youth enjoying the water as well. This event is a wonderful testament to his many years promoting fishing as a family event.  Join in the fun this year in one of the sessions listed below.
