Help a boy catch a fish
So heres the deal. I'm taking my wife's cousins camping with us for a week. Well the boy has never been fishing and wants to go bad. Anyway we are camping at Harrisville State park. Anyone know of a spot that might produce some decent results from shore? I can't get my camper and boat both there. Any help would be appreciated as I know nothing of the area.

Harrisville fishing report from DNR website: Fishing was steady with salmon, trout and walleye caught north of the harbor to the lighthouse. Lake trout, salmon and steelhead were caught in 50 to 100 feet with downriggers, dipseys, lead core and planer boards with spoons, cut bait or body baits in a variety of colors. Walleye were caught around the harbor walls and shallow waters early or late on crawler harnesses or body baits.
Walking the Brake Wall can be fun and challenging carrying all the supplies. Be careful.

Reid Lake is a hidden gem of a trail. The entire system used to be a privately owned farm years ago, and there are still signs of that. The first mile in was beautiful and wide with tall trees draping over a well groomed trail. After that trail came to a close, we arrived at Reid Lake itself, which is a small lake with beautiful water and wildlife. The lake is surrounded by very old docks that do not seem very safe at all, however we were on them several times and they were quite sturdy. Clearly a telltale sign of old craftsmanship withstanding the tests of time. After passing Reid Lake, you will eventually arrive at a trail the skirts a very large swamp. The bugs were not terrible that day, but they weren’t pleasant either. After hiking past the swamp, you’ll arrive at a few “campsites” that, as much as we tried, could not find evidence of. This is a good place to stop for lunch if you’re thru-hiking. After leaving that area, you will arrive at another small lake. These campsites are very well maintained and the lake is quite nice. It’s rather hard to get to the shore, as there were lots of downed trees and bushes, but rumor has it there is good fishing to be had there. We started the trek back and caught a small side trail to return us to Reid lake for one last visit. We relaxed on the docks for quite some time, then set off to return to the parking lot. It was still a few miles to the lot, and that took us through a few very interesting spots. There were wooden bridges and boardwalks above several swamps, and a long stretch of tall pines, arranged as if British soldiers awaiting a charge. Reid Lake will remain a favorite little gem of mine for quite some time to come, and I would recommend it to anyone.
its a good spot well worth the hike....bugs may be a different story though
