This event will replace Packery Channel until the repairs are completed at the old location.

“They amaze me at times. I had a child that never had a rod and reel in his hand before. He was casting in the first 20 minutes AND enjoyed it more than any person I have ever seen cast.” – Shore Volunteer, TPWD Hatchery Flour Bluff


“I love paying it forward, it makes my heart feel good. If I can make a difference in a positive way for these children and their family for just a day, I have accomplished something good. We all need to take a step back and help our fellow man, the world would be a better place for it.”- Shore Volunteer, TPWD Hatchery Flour Bluff

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.

Event Itinerary

Our C.A.S.T. for Kids events include lots of fun and celebration! You can expect 2-3 hours of fishing, a delicious lunch and an awards celebration where your child will receive a personalized plaque. The event will start at 8:30am and will end at 1:00pm.  Please note a parent or guardian must be present with your child for the entirety of the event. If you are volunteering for this event, you should expect about 5-6 hours of time at event, arriving before participants, and staying after to help wrap things up. This is a day of fishing the children, families, and volunteers will never forget!
