I was watching my three year old daughter play today and she was catching fish out of her laundry basket. I asked if she would like to go and fish and she said " yes, I want little girl ones with pink on them." So does anybody have aheads up on some good kid ponds with stocker trout in them? If my little girls got the bug I gotta get on it and get her into catching fish.

There's a county park in Lyons. Something...Neal Park. I believe there is a pond on the way in that has bluegill and other warm water fish. South side of the river near the Fire Station. MB.

Can people still fish off the dam at Detroit? If so that might be an experience if nothing else. We have a small pond for kids here in Canby, but I think this time of year it gets too warm.

Kodiak;
I don't know some of the ponds personally,except Walter Wirth by Walmart in Salem. It is fairly clean with a dock and stocked regularly. Here are a couple links you might find helpful.
All Oregon - Oregon Directory of Oregon web sites by someone actually born in Oregon. look under "recreation".

I think trojan ponds near rainier are still doing pretty good, they stocked em about two weeks ago, all mowed lawn and no obstructions, great for a new caster.

I cheat. With a young one that little, I would take her to a trout farm. Fast action and 100% success. Just what a youngster needs to grow the addiction. My little one started on those when she was three and now she is a fishing machine.

kodiak, go up to detroit, make a left on breitenbush and on the left youll find a day use area. get there as early as your daughter will go and fish right out from the dock. If your there early, not many people, throw green power eggs at them, I have luck there every time, but as I said the earlier the better, cool mornings seem to get more fish, and theres not usually many people there until after 10 am. let me know how it goes, remember, theres never a bad day fishing, especially when your spending time with your kids. happy fishing, Brian:)

Salem Area

If you're looking in the Salem area there are a few ponds that might produce something. Walling pond over off of Mcgilchrist and 16th. Gateway Park behind Wal-Mart( it gets a little crouded and some of the people are....... well let's just say interesting). Detroit Lake is probably going to be your best bet. It's the most stocked lake in Oregon and they have a TON of spots where it's not too bad to take children.
First spot would be the dam itself. Pretty much whatever you're using, heft it out there as far as you can get it and let it free fall back to the side of the dam.
If you go up to the store/gas station in Detroit, take a left at the station and go up to the day use along side the road and park if you can. They have pic nic tables and many people have had little campfires so you can cook if you want..
If you go up that same road there'll be a day use area with restrooms and a swim area and a dock to fish from. Only problem is(if you're cheap like me) you have to pay to park.
Hope this helps and she gets hooked.
