Nobody in our family has fished for over 30 years; my kids (14 and 10 year old girls) have never tried it at all. We were looking for something new to try out while in Ruidoso, and this was perfect. It's a trout pond at...More

Quaint little stocked pond! The 12 yr old host is very entertaining and extremely helpful. My son caught a twenty four inch trout! I saw a family that caught 6 of the smaller trout. Lots of action!
