Griffin and Sawyer Senkyr, 7 and 4, celebrate start of summer break by fishing in Fairview

COURTESY PHOTO: LAUREN SENKYR - Griffin, left, and Sawyer Senkyr went fishing at Fairviews Salish Ponds to celebrate the start of summer. The best way to kick off the summer is with an afternoon of fishing.

That is how the Senkyr family celebrated the start of summer break, as 7-year-old Griffin and 4-year-old Sawyer cast out their lines at Fairview's popular Salish Ponds Wetland Park earlier this month.

"We didn't catch any fish, but that's not surprising as we weren't terribly prepared and were out more to just have fun," wrote Lauren Senkyr, their mother.

One of the best ways to get to the Salish Ponds, a natural area that transformed former gravel pits, is along a meandering trail that begins at Fairview Community Park, 1300 N.E. Village St., near City Hall. Folks can cross the covered bridge and follow the 2.8-mile route, with little elevation gain and accessible for all abilities. It follows the Fairview Creek through a swale of Oregon ash, black cottonwood and Oregon white oak.

Adjacent to the Salish Ponds is a meadowland cultivated beneath the powerlines.
