A special thanks to Impact of Oregon


“My son has ASD, and his Autism comes with social anxiety. He is afraid to be around groups off people, especially those he does not know, but loves fishing and it helps him to be social. He forgets his anxiety while doing something he loves with other kids who are different and who enjoy fishing too. Thank you to the organizers and volunteers for sharing your time, knowledge and most of all, patience!” –  Parent of Participant, Bowman Pond

“I always take more away in my heart than I feel I was able to give. Special children give you a special give every time you enter their lives.” – Shore Volunteer, Bowman Pond

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 6 – 18, the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Take to the water with C.A.S.T. for an unforgettable morning of fishing!
