My little 7 year old girly girl has taken a sudden interest in fishing. I don't know why she's become interested, but I really enjoy going out with her. We need to find a place where it is fairly easy for her to catch fish or she will lose interest. Any place an hour or so from Denver would be great. Any suggestions?

I'd say get some small baitholder hooks (preferably size 8) and go to Grandview Ponds on 104th about 1/5 mile east of Colorado Blvd. Scout out the ponds 1st to see if there are enough hungry sunfish and bluegill to keep the child focused.

Pella Crossing. lots of fish, and easy access from shore. the water is clear and you can have lots of fun just looking at fish...

Woah.. How'd I get that cool face with the shaded glasses on that post.. Oh I see, nevermind.. What I meant was..

An addition to that post: Grandview Ponds allows bait too so you can bait her up with some earthworms beneath a lil bobber. Last time I went there, there were a bunch of little baby largemouths hittin worms under bobbers. A few guys with their kids out and the kids all seemed to have lots of fun.

some place with carp....
ugly fish, not worth keeping IMO, but easy for kids to learn on, and they can be had with little effort. that is what first came to mind....

but bluegills are probably good for kids as well and will allow you go after some other stuff. that is probably in the same area... can't really help with locations for you though.

good luck. when she gets older she may not want to spend her weekends on the water with you so make do with the few years you got.   let us know how it turns out.

Thanks guys. I think little bluegills are just the ticket. Love those little guys myself. Your right about the precious time I get to spend with her. My 10 year old has already started shutting herself in her room and doesn't spend as much time with her parents. I'm glad her younger sister wants to spend some time with me.
