I took my family members with little to no fishing experience here, aged 13 through 73. There's plenty of trout and you can almost scoop them out with a net. When we went it was the end of their season so they were out of...More

Took my son and he loved it. Small ponds that are well-stocked with trout. Mu son has been dying to catch something. Wish they had a fishing only option, but you did have to purchase what you caught.

This was a great place to take my husband for Father's Day. No one else in our family really likes to fish, but this was great. No hauling stinky fishing stuff, no finding a "good" spot to fish, no hours of sitting with no bites....More

Our family of five each caught a trout in 20 minutes. It was a great friendly atmosphere. Wonderful to hear stories of fishing and bears. They cleaned the fish, and we cooked them for dinner. It is well worth the time and the price.

What a wonderful place. Nice and peaceful stocked ponds, they have poles, bait, nets (because you will be successful) and friendly fishing and area knowledge. We came here after multiple unsuccessful attempts to introduce my kids (age 10 &12) to fishing (including multiple derbies). And...More

You don't have to be an excellent fisher to enjoy the Tahoe Trout Farm. It's such a fun way to spend an hour or so outside if you're all hiked/biker/water sported out. They provide the rods and bait and you don't even need a license....More

Great family fun. Staff are very nice. Easy to catch fish. My son had a blast. No permit required, you only pay for what you catch.
