“We never thought fishing was a possibility for our son. Thank you for making it possible! He loved it!”

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Not all locations are conducive to hosting boating events. This event gives participants the opportunity to fish from shore.

CAST Covid-19 Event Policy and Procedures

The CAST for Kids Foundation will be holding all 2020 events in compliance with CDC, National, State and local guidelines for Covid-19.  We will be following these guidelines for the safety, health and well-being of our participants, families, volunteers and staff.  If we can hold an event according to state guidelines, as states phase in their re-opening, we will. However, our events may look different than they have in the past. Lunch and awards may be broken into separate groups to enhance social distancing. At a minimum, we will be implementing 6’ social distancing guidelines and the use of protective measures like masks and hand sanitizers.  We are confident we have figured out how to provide a safe, relaxing, fun environment for everyone to enjoy at CAST for Kids events in 2020! However, it will be impossible to guarantee the safety of all CAST participants and volunteers. Please consider each of your individual risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic when making your decision to attend any CAST event.

2018 Event Recap:

Saturday, April  14th 2018 brought crisp cool weather to our Calaveras Lake Park Saturday CAST For Kids foundation fishing event held out of Calaveras Lake Park South of San Antonio Texas. CPS energy once again stood out tall as our prominent event sponsor for the 15th consecutive year. The Texas Parks and wildlife department once again stocked more than 600 hungry catfish for the children of special needs to enjoy fishing for. Many of these catfish weighed more than 3 pounds and were quite the battle for the children. A new foundation record catch was had this event. One young man with two excellent fishing helpers landed 64 catfish in the two hour and 15 minute fishing session. Every single One of the 43 children caught fish and were able to experience a wonderful event. Plans are already in the works for our 2019 event.
