2018 Event Recap

This was the 19th annual CAST for Kids at Prineville Reservoir in Oregon.  The fishing was the best in recent memory, with every child catching several fish, and one boat caught 50!  Crappie were the catch of the day.  The Central Oregon Bass club really hustled to help us get 17 boats, compared to the 5 boats at this event in 2017.  Several new boaters attended and loved it.  The Prineville Kiwanis once again cooked lunch for all.  The weather was perfect, sunny and calm winds, with a high in mid-90s.

2017 Event Recap

For the first time in years, the Prineville CAST for Kids had no thunderstorms roll through the day of the event.  The sun was out all day, and the kids caught lots of fish.  The boater turnout was down this year, but all the kids took turns going boating and fishing.  The bank fishing was good for those who waited for their boat ride.  The local Kiwanis Club cooked lunch for the group as they do every year at Prineville.
