Default Teacher?? Fishing help

So I am a 40 year old single dad, My kids and I love fishing the problem is we just are not very good. My dad died at a young age so no one ever taught me. Maybe someone knows a guide or place or would be interested in showing us a few things. All the guides are for fly fishing it seems and we just need help with lake and maybe river fishing from the shore. I am willing to pay or pay with beer (work at Coors). I live in Arvada

gl. search for past reports. alot of anglers reports give good lures used and such. find a species and focus on it, to start. then evolve from there.

What kind of fishing do you like? What kind of fish do you like to fish for? How old are your kids?

Since you answered the question from oprey, maybe I wasn't kidding about my latter inquiry

you're in luck... There are a ton of places right by you that offer great angling opportunities!!!

I would go into more detail, but you're Melrose Place guy and CLEARLY that's an incorrect choice. Epic fail.

So in the meantime, google earth your area, get some lake names, then use the search function on this site to get angling info on that body of water.

Should keep you busy long enough to rethink your crap selection of "Da Place."

Luke Perry, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Tiffany Amber Thiessen on one show.... What the hell is the matter with you, dude...

Chad LaChance!!!!! Watch the shows, go to his seminars, talk to the guys at your local sporting goods store ( not Walmart) . Anglers love to help even if it doesn't seem like it. Make your bones around here and offers will come to meet up with others, catch and release is the key
