Hey everyone,

The family and I are headed to Beaver's Bend for a few days over spring break. I haven't fished on the river before and any tips would be appreciated. I'll primarily be fly fishing, but will absolutely have a light spinning outfit as well. My 5 year old will be right there with me (no way I could get away with leaving him at the cabin - good problem to have). He handles a spinning outfit well and will probably be chunking and winding. Thanks to all!

yellow coach dog roostertail.

be sure of the regs for the section you are fishing for barbless etc.

1/16 - 1/8 - 1/4oz. get 2 of the 1/4 and 3 ea. of the others as you will probably hang up at least once.

fish them along eddy lines, pull from current into eddy etc. fun lure to fish for trout.

Since you'll have your young son id recommend 2 areas for fishing. Between the bridges inside the state park, the area that used to be called Lost Creek. The river is easily accessed from the bank here. The water moves pretty fast though so keep a close eye on him. The second place is just below (down stream) of the lower bridge. You'll have to wade here but it's very shallow and water is not too swift. Finally you can fish the bridge near the fly shop. On the down steam side you can get down to the bank and fish around to the swim area.

All areas circled in Red on the picture below

Another note, the park is no longer divided into blue and red zones. The entire park is now barbless hook only, 3 fish limit (rainbows, not sure on brown trout) and you can use any kind of bait anywhere in the park.

That's my 2 cents.

When in doubt, set the hook.
