MOSES LAKE, Wash. – The Bureau of Reclamation’s Ephrata Field Office has canceled its annual C.A.S.T. for Kids fishing event scheduled for Saturday, August 5 at Potholes Reservoir, due to triple-digit temperatures and heavy wildfire smoke in the area. These conditions could potentially jeopardize the health and well-being of participants and volunteers. Unfortunately, the event will not be rescheduled this year.

The C.A.S.T. “Catch a Special Thrill” program provides one-day fishing and boating events designed to accommodate children with a wide range of special needs.

The Bureau stated that they appreciate all the participants who registered, partners, donors, and volunteers who registered to assist with the event.
