This is a perfect day fishing spot. You do not need a license to fish here since this is private property.

Old Fishing Hole Pond – Kent
This is a perfect lake to take your kids to for their first-time fishing. It includes a loop trail of .25 miles around the pond. Fishing here is only for youth up to and including 14-year old’s with adult fishing prohibited, so perfect for the little ones’ first time.
Seacrest Park – West Seattle
Located on Harbor Avenue right next to Don Armeni Boat Ramp, you will find Seacrest Pier. This is a beautiful pier overlooking the Puget Sound. You will find lots of spiny dogfish and starry flounders. The West Seattle Sportsmen’s Club holds their annual Kids’ Fishing Pond event here in June for kids 14 and under, allowing great practice and a fun time for the young ones and adults alike.
Belvoir Place – Seattle
This is a great spot for beginner fishers. It’s a small waterfront park located at 42nd Avenue NE near Surber Drive NE in Laurelhurst. This place is absolutely beautiful in the summertime and is a magnet for kayaking, canoeing and swimming. The only thing needed here is a dock rebuild as it is worn from years of use.
