the Stave and Harrison are both great rivers to lure fish

the Vedder can be difficult if you have lots of drift fisherman around

FRaser is good for lures especially now the pinks are coming

if you want a good idea would be to pick up a 10.6 foot with a level wind for drift fishing its easily the best setup for fall fishing

Coop, you might also consider taking the boy to one of the local lakes that are stocked. At this time of year the fishing is not hot on the rivers, especially for a youngster...it's often best when the taking a child fishing, to get them into decent numbers of fish so that they don't lose interest...

The pinks should be in thick soon, if you are going to choose that option, make sure they're there when you take the boy...

Good luck, welcome to the forum...

Well, lets try and put you into some fish with the least amount of spending and the most amount of action for you and the kid...

First a couple questions,

What kind of gear do you have, ie: rods and reels, tackle...are you starting from scratch...?

Also, you live in mission, what lakes do you know of in your general viscinity...?

We'll start there and try and get you going in the right direction...

Rolley can be extremely tough to fish even for fly fisherman

i see most people fishing powerbait from the shore but right now you will have too many people swimming there for that i bet

I have a six year old and a eleven year old and for some afternoon fun I take them under the Mission bridge with just their spinning rods single hook with a dew worm. They absolutly have a bast catching corse fish the odd trout and even a jack once in awhile. It useally does't take long for them to catch something. :thumbup:
