“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.

2018 Event Recap

37 children of special needs attended the inaugural Miller park pond event in Temple Texas on Saturday, March 3, 2018. The Texas Parks and wildlife department generously stocked the pond with hundreds of rainbow trout which the children eagerly caught the heck out of! Every single child entered caught fish. This made the event extra special for everyone involved.

Thanks to all the incredible volunteers who donated their morning to work with these children and show them how much fun fishing and time together with family can be. Additional thanks go to our event sponsors, Belltec industries, the Texas Parks and wildlife department, Temple city parks, and especially Carli Klinge and her classmates at Texas State University.
