The easiest place to do it in Orgrimmar is behind the Waterfall in The Valley of Honor. The easiest place in Stormwind is to take the boat from Howling Fjord to Stormwind, once you're here jump off find a safe spot and fish in the water. Of course you can fish anywhere in Stormwind if you're alliance and anywhere in Org if you're Horde. The two locations I listed are for opposite factions.
