Beach fishing for trout (or anything0 and good action? Not a lot of options, but here is one. Go up to Rattlesnake, fish the South shore, easy walk and some nice small beaches. Fantastic view and enough rocks and sticks to throw while not catching any fish. If you really want him to catch a fish, might as well use power bait and you'll do ok.....can't believe I'm saying that, but I don't even bother reporting or trying to educate them anymore, life is too short and it's useless. Just use a single barbless hook and release them ( illegal to keep any ). When he asks why you released the fish, just say the obvious, so he can catch it again.
