2018 Event Recap

United States Bureau of reclamation, Bill Wilson and the centennial bass club, and dozens more volunteers held the 22nd annual CAST For Kids event June 2, 2018 on horse tooth reservoir. 30 children with special needs attended and were met by 35 boat captains in 94 volunteers. Fishing was excellent with smallmouth bass being the most frequently mentioned species caught by the children. Many of these participants had been coming to this event for more than a decade. The award ceremony brought lots of laughs and the meal provided to everyone was delicious. Thanks to all who supported this event. It was an amazing day.
