“We loved it so much! It was a huge blessing to receive the equipment and the boat captains were so patient and motivated to teach the kids a new skill. My son loved fishing and felt real special receiving the plaque, he hung it up on his wall as soon as we got home! More events like this are needed!”

“Awesome program that helped my daughter realize what she could do, helped us as parents see what she could do, helped the volunteers see what she could do, helped those watching see what she could do. Profound success.”

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 7 – 17, 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 and boating!

2018 Event:

“I truly want to say thank you to all of you that made it possible.  Thank you not only for giving your time and effort but also for allowing us and our children to be themselves and always welcoming their personalities without any judgments!!!  Thank you. – Participant Parent, Castaic Lake

“Please keep up the great work guys and gals!  Such a beautiful event.  So happy and privileged to have been a part!” Boat Captain, Castaic Lake

“The event gave Kyle a fishing pole and tackle box. Because of this, Kyle’s dad took him to the fishing supply store  to get a few supplies. Kyle is so excited to go fishing again!  We will need help, but he has shown an interest to outdoor recreation, which is a huge change. We are so happy! – Participant Parent, Castaic Lake
