Hook;
Check out a great resource for just this kind of question: Boat Escape - Ultimate Oregon Boating, Camping & Fishing Resource |. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and look for "HandiAngler" on the left side of the page. They list quite a few fishing spots for the physically challenged.
Come back and let us know how you guys do,wherever you go. Good luck and have fun.
Be safe.

Hagg lake and salish ponds both have docks made specially for the handicapped. All you need is a easy to access/level area right?

Thanks Barb,
FS...I can take him to a lot of lakes, the problem for him is he can't walk the banks of rivers anymore due to weak legs and balance. He would love to catch steelhead or salmon over trout.

Next winter take him to the N.fork Nehalem fish hatchery on hwy 53. They have a great area for disabled folks, there are more winter steelhead caught from the ds area than anywhere on that river I think, lol.

What about getting a guide to take the two of you down in a drift boat? Total relaxation. Getting in and out might be a bit of a challenge, but once in/out...totally set.

The North Umpqua River at the Swiftwater Bridge near Idawyld has a nice platform for fishing. I have seen salmon pulled out of that hole. They use floats and eggs.
