  Stay On Land With Two Young Ones...

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.

I say shoreline for trout since that fish is usually accessible when the water is fairly cold (65F and under). If you go over with the canoe with two children, even with life preservers but without immersion gear, the kids would be in serious trouble and you would be hard pressed to try to rescue two simultaneously.

Save canoe fishing for warmer water species and WARMER water, e.g. beam, bass, pickerel. I got hooked on fishing by going out early morning or at sunset to catch bass from a johnboat. Very pleasant to just have shorts, tshirt, PFD and bugspray on and finding fish busting on top. Going for trout becomes a little more specialized with gear, water conditions, etc. Not something that would be fun with young kids (without seriously compromising the fun factor).
