took my son up to derby reach yesterday trying to get him hooked into fishing. i have never bar rig fished before. i perfer walking the river and casting or fly fishing....so this is all new. My question is....what was i doing wrong? we used a bar rig with a 7oz weight and a short leader with a green/yellow/red spinner.. got a good cast distance from shore. was it just a dry day on the river or ?? i am aprehensive about taking him to the vedder cause he is not quite big enough to wade in the river and has no fear of water so i dont need that scare.

does anyone have any other suggestions about where to take him to hook a red spring?.........would love to have a boat this year but have just gotten out of the doghouse from the dirtbikes............hey a guys gotta have toys right??

thanks T

You don't need to cast far when bar fishing but it all depends on how your gear's sittin. If your chucken roe,stay out of the fast current and close if not on the bottom. If you're doing spin n glows you want to be off the bottom and in faster water so the luers can do thier thang,but you don't need to be in the middle of the flow. marko :D

roe on the bottom hook and worms on the top hook when using a bar rig and as for weight at derby reach 2 ounces 3 max and make sure you have a good rod holder and your all set!

i agree with KC. the flow at derby seems a little slow for the spin n glo to really get buzzing. i used to fish there years ago and roe worked good and about 3 oz. weight.used to be LOTS of fish near the upper end of the bar but don't know the good spots now.

best spot to fish here is to keep to your right when entering the parking lot drive through the campground about a little over 100 yrds or so till you come to a parking lot to your right (look for the covered area and thats where ya fish) mostly hard gravel and rock so bring a hammer to drive your rod holder into the ground and enjoy!

thanks for the info.....we tryed again at derby and then farther out near 272 and river road. we tryed 4oz weight and some roe and then a spinner with some roe....and still seem to have no luck. my son has the idea that they are on summer vacation.....im starting to maybe beleive that.....too funny.........well i guess if it was easy it would be called catching instead of fishing.......should i possibly be watching for an incoming tide????
