2107 Event:

2017 marked the return of the DWR sponsored C.A.S.T. for kids event on Castaic Lake outside Los Angeles CA. This event was not held for 3 years due to dangerously low lake levels caused by the Southern California drought. Twenty children of special needs and their families were hosted this year. Amazingly, many of the same volunteers from past years returned to bless these children with a great day of fishing. It seems the children were not the only people excited to see C.A.S.T. return! Several largemouth bass were brought in for everyone to view as well as the usual assortment of sunfish that have brought smiles to so many children’s faces over the many years the foundation has held events. Everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by the Lions Club.
All are excited already for 2018! See you there!
