Mission Park or the greenway across from the Mennonite School would be the nearest place. Social Security Beach in Independence.

Yes, locals have been catching fish for weeks. Nooks and steelhead. It's tight lipped so don't expect to find a bunch of info about it. Best thing to do is go check it out and start learning it.

Yes - Do note that I believe the gate is closed and you have to walk in. I don't know the story as to why it's that way but from what I heard, it's not going open anytime soon. Thursday would be a good day to start fishing and remember to fish close to the bank. Good luck.

Beaverfan - Nice link....lots of good info in that thread. :)
