The Spokane area’s annual CAST for Kids event will be May 2 at Clear Lake.

For a $5 fee, youths 5-14 will take home a rod and reel, a Fishing Kids T-shirt, and have the opportunity to catch planted rainbow trout under supervision of local volunteers.

Members of area sportsmen’s groups donate many hours to rig fishing rods and gear before the event, and they even clean the fish for the kids before they leave.

CAST for Kids is limited to the first 1,000 who sign up.

Preregister by April 24: Forms are available at the Washington Fish and Wildlife Department Spokane Valley office, 2315 N. Discovery Pl., or from Spokane County 4-H Web site, www.spokane-county.wsu. edu/4h/index.html.

Another event will be held in the Colfax area on June 13. Sign up at (509) 397-6290.
