The Bureau of Reclamation, in partnership with the C.A.S.T. (Catch a Special Thrill) for Kids Foundation and Pleasure Cove Marina, will host a C.A.S.T. for Kids fishing event at Lake Berryessa on Saturday, October 15, 2011. Reclamation is seeking boaters and fishermen who wish to volunteer their time and use of their boat.
The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lake Berryessa's Pleasure Cove Marina. Each child will spend the morning on a boat fishing with local anglers and volunteers, and a free barbeque lunch will be served to participants, parents and volunteers in the afternoon.
The C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation is a national, non-profit organization whose goal is "to provide disabled or disadvantaged children with the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing." Information on C.A.S.T. for Kids is available here.
