    Two days ago I visited a, I would guess well known spot on the South Fork in NorthBend, WA. I took my eight year old son with me as we haven't been fishing much together this season do to my travel schedule etc.
    We got to the spot around 8am. I set my son in a spot that was easy for him to cast. I walked up about 75yds and with in minutes I had hooked four bows about 8-10"" each. I gave that location a rest. I crossed and headed down no more than 100yrds from our location. By the time we had to leave I was able to get 10 bows in just under three hours. Smallest at 6" to biggest 12". One of the fish I caught had a hole in its back. Looked like it might have been stabbed by a Heron and got away.

    We had a great morning on the river, and as for my son no fish for the young lad. Getting out together and throwing a hook is fun. He has had luck on other outings catching dinner once while camping!

    Great report. I'm sure your son had a good time fishing with his Dad!

    Will you be my Dad and take me fishing, only 66. Those are lunkers compared to what I get on the South Fork.

    Ever fish the mainstem between the conflunce of the south fork and the falls?

    Some hawgs in there. The water is real interesting now that they have lowered the level of the diversion dam at the falls.

    Way to get that boy out there fishing!

    Please dont take this the wrong way, but be very, very careful leaving your son unattended on a river at that age. A hundred yards doesnt seem like much, but a hell of a lot can happen very, very quickly. I would hate the thought of something happening with you right there in eyesight but unable to get there quick enough.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Easiest of all the snoqualmie to fish. Fronted by road along almost it's entire length.
