“Our Captain was very knowledgeable about fishing and was one-on-one with my grandchild! My grandson was able to catch 19 fish on Sunday and said, this is my best day ever.” – Grandparent of Participant, Chateaugay Lake


“Once the first fish is caught – the excitement really starts to build on the boat for the experience. This is a group of people that are really putting forth A LOT of effort to make an enjoyable experience for kids that may never otherwise experience the fun of fishing! It was a good feeling to be fostering the joy of fishing in these young kids.” – Volunteer Boater, Chateaugay Lake

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 6 years or older, 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!
