Default Fishing in Vancouver, British Columbia

I am planning a family trip to Vancouver in late August. I would like to take my son (he will be 14) on a half-day of fly fishing while there. Since my wife will be with us, no full day! Is it worth the time to fish somewhere close to the city? I know the Pitt River is fairly close. Since my son is a beginner and has only been fly fishing a few times, I don't think Steelhead or big salmon would be the way to go. Some nice easy trout fishing with a knowledgeable guide who will instruct would be perfect. Any recommendations? Is the fishing o.k. that time of year? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
