Fishing trip celebrates, empowers local kids

A summer fishing trip Saturday morning empowered local kids and gave them a chance to experience nature.

C.A.S.T. for Kids volunteers took several local kids fishing at Clear Lake.

For some, it was their first time holding a pole. Others were just excited to go on their first boat ride.

The foundation putting on the event aims to enrich the lives of children with special needs, support their families, and strengthen communities through the sport of fishing.

Similar events happen across the nation throughout the year. Learn more about the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation here.
