Hey everyone,
Greyson had been wanting to get back out fishing since our last catch on our camping trip. So we decided to head out today after his swim meet.

Here is on the block:

His little buddy Lucas had been wanting to go for awhile now so we brought him along. Arrived at about 2pm. Set up shop south of the rock wall and around the bend. Maybe 200 yards from the end of the rock wall.

Rigged up four rods (I think the kids get two each right? Maybe someone can chime in but there was not room for any more today).: two with power bait and two with anchovies. Tons of people out enjoying the good weather.

Greyson wanted to practice casting lures. While doing so we missed our first bite. The bobber went up and when we pulled on the rod we were snagged. Had to break it off. About 5 minutes later one of he anchovy rods takes a huge hit,but didnít stick.

Got quiet for a bit and then about an hour and a half after we arrived we finally got our first fish. Greyson played it well and Lucas was on the net. A nice little 1lb trout.

Got the rod back in the water and as I was trying to send the pic to Lucasí parents and my wife we got a hit on the anchovy. Lucas needed some help reeling it in, and we landed a nice 19Ē striper. Greyson scooped him up with some difficulty. Very spunky fish. As I was trying to get the hook out another rod goes off, and Greyson lands our second trout with help from Lucas on the net.

About an hour later Lucas landed our 3rd trout and fourth fish for the day. We lost one that hit as we started to reel in to check the bait. I was a little rusty and missed the hook set.

Final count: 3 trout, 1 striper, 3 missed bites. 2 very happy kids! And one very proud and happy dad!

People to the south of me had 8 rods for 4 people. There all day. Ended up 8 short of limits. Didnít see anything landed north of us. Plenty of people we talked to who had limits or close to it for a full days work. North of the marina was hitting.
Go get Ďem!!!

I read the regs. Kids under 16 get two rods where legal but wanted to confirm. Got approached by someone last time who said we had too many rods. Anyone want to chime in?

As for the 2 rods per child, I was told that if the parent has a 2 rod stamp the kids are allowed to have 2 rods each. That's what I did until they were of age to get there own license.:fishing1::fishing1::fishing1: Great photos!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

I got the same info from CA F&G for steelhead fishing. No license needed for kids, but they must have their own report card. Nice Post.
