I'm looking into canoe's to get me and the kids (75lb and 50lb) into the water. I was wondering..is it possible to do much trout fishing from a canoe?

I don't think you'd be successful floating a small canoe on most of the trout streams I frequent. We don't have larger trout waters that flow where I live.

I live in MO and have trout fished from a canoe many times without a problem. You will need an anchor or a rope with a clamp attached to hold onto tree limbs or downed trees. I have also free floated without anchoring and had very good luck. Unless you are floating in whitewater then it should not be a problem. I fished the current river in MO a couple of times every summer out of a canoe until I got a kayak. Good luck

Most of the places we fish for trout are *only* accessible by canoe.

That should work fine. Just make sure that you have enough room so you can move easily. It will be good to get some younger kids on the water. Good luck!

better to "trout fish" lakes and ponds from the shoreline with two young ones. You'll likely be untangling and/or baiting their hooks. That would be hard to do on a canoe.
