Eucumbene Trout Farm has a Cafe, Farm Tours and Fishing Experiences. The farm is a working trout farm also with Highland cattle and Alpacas. They have a privately stocked Stony lake for fishing with fly rod or rod to fish for your trout. Should you not be successful then you are welcome to advance your luck in the sure catch pond. You then have the choice of staff preparing the trout for cooking on the barbecues and having lunch in their picnic area or taking the trout home. A great day out for the family. Four hour sessions are available by arrangement. Beginner's introductory lessons can be included if required. All rods, reels, landing nets and bait/flies are supplied.Guided tours of the farm are available at 10am and 2pm, or other times by arrangement.

We found the visit to the farm to be good fun. Not only did we catch a rainbow trout but it was prepared for us to cook on the bbq and to eat for lunch along with salad and chips. Altogether a good day out.

Thankyou, of course our award winning smoked trout is pretty good too! For next time, and we would love to welcome you again. The January heat wave was a huge challenge to trout fishing while persistence was rewarded, as you achieved.
