This a stocked pond absolutely loaded with rainbow trout. Expect to have a fish on the line in under 30 seconds. Don't plan on staying for long, you have to buy what you catch and there is no catch and release. Beautiful fish but not...More

Kids enjoyed this. Guaranteed to catch a trout. Trout are large. They will clean for you, but note you will not get a boneless filet. I would highly recommend to get your fish gutted. Much easier to get bones out after it's cooked. This is...More

If you want to catch a fish, you won't be disappointed. Within five minutes of putting the pole in, there was a fish on the hook. This was one of the best fishing spots our family has ever been to.

Fantastic time spent here! Cought 9 trouts in an hour and a half although first experience at fishing. The staff were very helpful. Amazing family time where you have fun catching your dinner and then cook it yourself 😋

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Can you simply catch and release?

Response from CS L | Reviewed this property |
They do not allow catch and release. I love this place but beware. 14 fish will cost about $120 all total. I recommend families just get 1 rod and take turns to make the experience last longer.
How much per fish?

You should call ahead to verify but I think it was a per pound price.
Whats the charge for cleaning fish?

Response from Gmhfay | Reviewed this property |
If I remember correctly they clean the fish for free... well, I should say its included in the price of the fish. Really Nice place and very friendly staff!!
