Bunch of people were leaving as we arrived (around noon) maybe because there's no shade? Their benches and chair are very old.. Like breaking down old. They have all the equipment, bait. You pay for what you catch and you can't release what you caught already. They use a length system for pricing. We caught fish right away and unfortunately that didn't let us fish any longer since we didn't want to pay for more fish. I think we got scared after the second catch which was 16-17 inches. Would be nice if they sold charcoal since they have bbq grills there. They also gut the fish for you. In the end, we had two trouts with a full container of worms.

Took the family on a camping trip to bodega dunes for a quick two night summer trip! I found this place and it's great! Dustin the guy working was really nice and helpful! Told us the best location to fish. He even took a family picture with our catch! This is the perfect place to take your kids. We had 6 small children and they all easily caught fish. We will definitely be visiting again.

My family and I visited this Sheep ranch / Trout farm on 10/14/13. We were met by Larry, a very laid back, extreamly pleasant gentleman who hooked us up with poles and some power bait and sent us on our way down to the pond. After about 20 minutes of getting the poles in the water and no bites, Larry joined us down on the dock and announced, "We're having a fishing derby, boys against girls....". He fired up the "bait machine", some kind of food pellet spewing contraption, and boy did the fish get active. In the end all the kids (and adults) caught fish and we took home seven beautiful Rainbows, the largest 15 inches. For a small fee Larry gutted and cleaned our catch and we left having had a very memorable experience. If your in the Bodega Bay area and looking for a fun family activity, whether your an experienced angler or not, go to Hagemann Ranch and you will have a nice time. While we didn't use them, we noticed picnic tables and bbque's arond the ponds and property which I assume can be used by visitors. I also saw a sign offering hay rides.
