Lake Shasta, California - Due to a weather forecast calling for a 90-percent chance of rain, thunderstorms and lightning, the Bureau of Reclamation’s Northern California Area Office has cancelled the C.A.S.T. (Catch a Special Thrill) for Kids event which had been scheduled for Saturday, May 21, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Packers Bay Boat Marina on Shasta Lake.

Although Reclamation looks forward to this event every year, safety must be the first priority. Reclamation thanks everyone who had volunteered to help with the event, including the boat captains, fishing mentors, Shasta County Sheriff’s Boat Patrol, Elks Lodge, Shasta Lake Lions Club and Reclamation staff members.

This C.A.S.T. event will not be rescheduled. The next C.A.S.T. event at Shasta Lake will be held in 2017.
