Oregon Kids Fishing
Photos - Kids, Fish & Smiles In OR.
There is nothing better than the smile on a kid holding up their
prize catch. We encourage you to take a kid fishing. Take a picture
of their catch and let us post it here. They don't have to be trophy
fish, trophy smiles is what we are looking for.
My son Dawson Howard & myself, Todd Howard, were fishing on
the Oregon side of the Columbia River Saturday, June 17,2006 when
I heard the bell ring on Dawson's pole. I ran over & set the
hook, handed the pole to Dawson who is 7 hears old. Dawson started
reeling & the fight was on. The Chinook salmon headed down river
stripping line. I asked another fisherman to free spool my pole
as the salmon was heading right toward my line. The other fisherman
confirmed the two lines were tangled. Dawson reeled for about 10
minutes with my hand supporting his pole, when he said, "Daddy
my arms hurt." I took over & told my son when he was ready
to reel again to let me know. Two minutes later he was ready to
go. Dawson fought it for about another 10 minutes then said, "Daddy,
I'm done". Dawson almost had it all the way in. Within a few
minutes we had it netted & on the beach. This Chinook salmon
weighed in at 35 pounds, which is about 20 pounds less than my son
weighs. Dawson showed his daddy how it's done and I am extremely
proud of my son.
