Default Kiddy Trout Ponds (pay per fish)

I have taken my kids out to Harvy's "You Catch Em!" pond out by Scio but the owner died last year and I was checking if anybody knew if the place was still open.

If not, I'm looking for a Kiddy Trout Pond where we go catch some easy trout for my little ones. They are only 2 & 3 years old, so we need some fast action ;-)

Anybody know of anyplace close? I'm in Albany.

There is a place out near McIver Park in Estacada. Can't remember the name. It's on the same road that McIver parks entrance is on. Might be a little too far for you to go though.

I don't know of any down your direction, but there is one out off Hwy 26 near North Plains called Horning's Hideaway. Very nice place with several ponds stocked with trout. Picnic areas and play areas also. I'll see if I can find a website for them and send it to you.

Don't know the name of it, but there is one on hwy 22 about Mill City or Gates -- sorry can't be more specific-- saw the sign for "u-catchem" and glazed over the rest.

Here's a little tip.....pinch back any barbs on the trout hooks and break off the tip of the hooks. Trout will bite and drag that hook around for a long time while your kid has a blast. You have to keep whatever you catch in these private ponds and you can make the experience last longer without costing you a small fortune. I went out to the Rainbow farms with my oldest several years ago...two fish cost me nearly 10 bucks.

you might also try the Rainbow Trout Farm just east of Sandy.

Rainbow Trout Farm near Sandy rocks! For little kids, that is. Make sure you bring plenty of $$$$m though. It's comparable to grocery store fish prices. Check out pond 6, nothing but lunkers.

They feed their trout feed with shrimp meal, so they get the pink/orange flesh and flavor of steelhead. They have a website. Google up Rainbow Trout Farm in Sandy, and you can check out their prices. It's been a couple of years since we've been there. Need to go back. It's a great facility. Bring a picnic lunch, great park-like setting. Oh, and did I mention bring plenty of $$$??? We've usually dropped 50-100 there, which is why it's only been once per year, and we've missed the past couple of years. But if you consider it a combination of grocery and recreation cost, in my opinion it's worth it when you consider the quality of the fish. It's really good fish!

I also recommend the Sandy trout farm. the place is nicer than most parks.
A few years back we took all our employees out for a picnic and fishing. It was great to see 40 and 50 yr old Russians having a great time. I think some of them had not fished since they were kids.
You pretty much wave a worm over the water and the fish will hit it. They also have different ponds depending upon the size fish you want. (It should be that easy on the river)
There are no throw backs allowed but I accidentially broke the point and barb off a fly and had fun for two hours fighting fish. Funny thing was that when they got near the bank they always got away.
Darn

If you want to have a blast with your kids, try Shad fishing in about 5 or 6 weeks; you can't hardly get your line to the bottom when it's hot.

OK, we did not get out to the Sandy pond just yet, but we did manage a quickie trip out to Roaring River Pond. Mikaela who is on the left caught her first fish and Gabriela her vetran sister caught a few also.

A guy said he had more fun watching the girls catch fish than fishing itself. Boy it is hard to believe how far down those bobbers go and still no fish! Anyway, what a golden moment in life! :grin:
