“In a very inaccessible world this event removes all obstacles of accessibility for wheelchair users so they can enjoy a day of fishing right on the creek. Usually navigating to good fishing spots can be quite challenging but this location is perfect!” – Parent of Participant, Clarks Valley


“Helping a child catch their first fish and teaching some basic fishing skills that they can use again was my favorite part. Everyone that attended was encouraging and helpful.” – Shore Volunteer, Clarks Valley

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!
