Any suggestions to take the young'uns out and keep them entertained? The trout fishing isn't fast enough to hold their interest long enough, and I'm not familiar enough with Barr Lake here in Brighton to get them on fish and hold their interest. There are a zillion little ponds around, anyone have locations, lures/jigs/bait combo's to share with a NOOB??

there has been a few posts about the rec center pond .....I guess its just loaded with little crappies ....normal stuff like pieces of a crawler or little flies will work just fine ...ive also heard of a few bass coming out

You should go ty it out. Use them pink jigs that come in the clear little container. Forgot the name. Try fishing next to the water jets. Bring your flies also. GL

What flies? Have a fair selection of nymphs and buggers/leeches. Should I try a floating line or will a slow to intermedite sink work....maybe I'll just head out there one of these evenings. Will the boys be able to see the fish in the water? I think that is going to be the main thing in keeping them interested.

i dont know where you are located but, there are plenty of big blue gill and crappie including bass of both kinds, down here in littleton the lake i recomend is called johnson lake its located on wadsworth and bowls just south of mervyns. a little bobber with worms will do the trick every cast is a definant bite.
