Hey All:

My niece and nephew (ages 9 and 7) are coming up to spend the Thanksgiving week with my wife and I. When my wife suggested that I take them out for their first fishing trip, they got so excited that they ran around the neighborhood telling their friends that they were going to catch a fish in Oregon!

Now, this places a bit of pressure on me to deliver! If this were summer, I'd have no problem (McKenzie for pelletheads, Alton Baker Canal, Umpqua for smallies). But, this being the start of the winter, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a lake or small (read SAFE) stream where I'd have a reasonable chance to put them on a fish or two. Species really isn't important, as any fish will be a good fish for them.

Junction City Pond could work, but it's so ugly there. I'm a little reticent to take them to a large river like the McKenzie for safety reasons. Any other ideas?

Thanks for the help!
