Where they feed and grow fish for selling in the market. One of them is the dalag or mudfish where guests loves to eat. The Barangay is a small populated one but it has a lot to offer.

 

According to our forefathers, the Barangay was very small then in terms of population. There are only ten (10) families living in the area who engaged in farming but as years went by, there came an old man about 73 years old from Northern Luzon, Province of Ilocos Norte a town of Paoay. He introduced himself with a name “ELIAS BORYA” and he said you can call me by my nickname “CACA YAS”. From then on, he was called by his nickname.

He was popular for his expertise for weaving a basket. He knew the different designs and forms. So he grabbed this opportunity to teach the people to wave a baskets and mats. As a result, the lives of the barrio folks became progressive because of the income-generating activity.

He got old and one day he got sick and died from his illness at the age of 98. His death brought sorrow to the community people as they loved him so much. To remember him, their place was named after him as ‘CACAYASEN’ A term “CACA” shows respect to the olds especially to the Ilocano people. So, the word CACAYASEN came from the “CACA” and the alyas “YAS” followed the two letters “EN” sound CACAYASEN which means smooth and clean.
