C.A.S.T., which stands for Catch a Special Thrill, will offer young people from the Intermountain Children's Home an opportunity to enjoy a day of fishing at Canyon Ferry Reservoir, near Helena. Each participant will receive fishing gear, a tee shirt, and a hat.
For some kids, this is their first experience fishing. For the volunteers, it is a great opportunity to be part of a special experience that these young people will remember for a lifetime.
C.A.S.T. goals include: provide a meaningful and enjoyable fishing opportunity; promote fishing as an alternative leisure activity, offer educational elements such as: angler ethic, fish identification and water safety, and develop skills that provide a lifelong hobby.
Volunteers from the Bureau of Reclamation and Walleyes Unlimited will provide fishing buddies, boats, and expertise to assist novice anglers. The morning fishing events will be followed by a lunch provided by the Legal Tender Restaurant.
