First, thanks to everyone who posts here. I thought I had learned a lot so we took the family fishing at Hope on Sunday. My son (9) is so excited to catch a fish and I figured Hope was a sure thing. Didnít work out that way for us and I am looking for some pointers on what we did wrong. We arrived around high tide. The mouth was flooded so not too many places to fish there, we went up under the bridge. We could see lots of fish, they were hugging the bank. The creek seemed high and fast too me, but Iíve only been there a couple times. It was impossible to fish in the current with our light gear so we fished 4-5 feet out where we could see fish with flies, spoons and Vibrax. NO BITES. My husband was able to hook a few in the mouth but I donít think they bit. Where did we go wrong? My heart was breaking for my son, he was so disappointed. Any pointers would be much appreciated. If the run isnít over I might head back this coming weekend to try again.
