Our Folsom Lake event is in Memory of Logan Schwab, an incredible young man whose passion for fishing will live on with the children at this event.

“My favorite moment was watching the kids receive their plaques and how happy it made them. It gave me an appreciation for helping the kids, and seeing how much the event meant to them and their families. It also made me excited to volunteer more with C.A.S.T. in the future.” – Shore Volunteer, Folsom Lake

“My son is nonverbal autistic, and his sensory needs were met by the boat’s bumps and speed and touching the water! Waiting to catch a fish helped him also with patience. These experiences in nature are immensely positive for him. This experience means so much to our son, engaging his senses and balancing his mind and body. Sharing this as a family is incredible, and we’re deeply grateful. Thank you!!!” – Parent of Participant, Folsom Lake

2025 event planning and preparations have begun. To reach more children a 2-day event is being held on:

Saturday, April 26, 2025 – Shore Fishing

Sunday, April 27, 2025 – Boat Fishing

C.A.S.T. for Kids events are 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 unforgettable mornings of fishing and boating!

Event Itinerary

Our C.A.S.T. for Kids events include lots of fun and celebration! You can expect 2-3 hours of fishing, a delicious lunch and an awards celebration where your child will receive a personalized plaque. The event will start at 8:00 am and will end at 1:00 pm.  Please note a parent or guardian must be present with your child for the entirety of the event. If you are volunteering for this event you should expect about 5-6 hours of time at event, arriving before participants and staying after to help wrap things up. This is a day of fishing the children, families and volunteers will never forget!
