“The volunteers for this event brought tears to my eyes. The smiles and positive attitudes on behalf of participants and volunteers were beyond words.” – Parent, Lake Oroville, CA


“My son has a lot of energy and needs a lot of attention. Having the attention of a boat captain and a parent allows him to have an experience that he couldn’t have with our entire family. The relaxed and accepting environment and people who truly care about our children make this event safe and enjoyable for my son. Regular sports are not an option because of the noise, stress and anxiety. Fishing is a wonderful option.” Parent of Participant – Lake Oroville


This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 5 – 17, 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!
