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.

They supplied all gear for fishing. We enjoyed and caught plenty of fish fast. It's a bit of a drive of the road 3.5 miles but it was a pretty drive.

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.

You should call ahead to verify but I think it was a per pound price.

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!!
