Beautiful scenery and huge rainbow trout. We caught many fish and had a wonderful trout dinner. No fishing license required and bait and poles are provided. They even clean the fish for you. Thank you for a nice afternoon with our family,

The location is out of town and off of a scenic gravel road. The pond and grounds are picturesque! The fish were easily caught by my three-year-old. My advice: Take your time fishing because you can easily rack up a $100 bill in 15 minutes....More

Your catch is only limited by your wallet. I defy you to put a line in the water and not catch a trout... just try... I saw a guy put an empty hook with a piece of grass on the hook in the water and...More

We had a blast. The fish were so easy to catch it felt a bit like cheating. I didn't want to stop but you had to take what you caught. No catch and release allowed. He cleaned and packaged the fish for us.

The good: easy way to create some great memories for young kids. You'll have the freshest trout possible. Really large fillets that are great for eating. Nice and clean place. The bad: it's totally unnatural, like the opposite of how fishing normally is. You have...More

We have a 5 year old who has been asking to fish, but we don't have that much experience with it. We saw a brochure for the pond and that they would provide the gear and everything you need. It was a beautiful drive there...More

We where only there for a little while because it's crazy easy to catch your fish. The pond is not a catch and release, you catch it you own it. They charged 4.49 a pound and will fillet your catch for a dollar a fish....More

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!!
