This place was very deceiving. The pond is very small and centered between the road and hill. Plus we wanted to just catch and release since we are staying at hotel with no way to cook a fish. We could have them cook the fish...More

This was a good stop to let the kids out of the car for a while & to try to catch some trout. Unlike other pay to fish ponds this location you actually got time to "fish" and not "catch" what you could afford. The...More

We have gone here for years with different management/ownership and it seem to stay the same (I know it seems impossible, but true). It took us a while but have figured (from advice) that a shinny lure will catch too many fish (it starts to...More

Spent some time relaxing in the afternoon fishing. I caught a 12 1/2 inch trout & my daughter caught 2 bottom feeders-sucker fish. No charge for the sucker fish. It's a nice lake and the staff are very helpful & friendly. They walk around asking...More

Great experience. We caught 10 fish in less than an hour. The cost adds up quickly($164), but we had a great time. Would definitely go again.

Others were catching lots of fish but we didn't because we had to leave after one hour. It's a pretty small pond next to the road but there isn't much traffic.The staff was very helpful in trying to assist us.

Great day. We packed a picnic and had a great day. Very helpful staff. They even clean your fish for a $1 each, way worth it!

In our group of 3 families, 4 kids managed to snag fish, but my two tried for almost two hours and only got a few nibbles. I guess that's just how it is with fishing, but they were quite disappointed. The pond is in a...More

My mom and I took my kids (6, 6, and 3) for their first fishing trip here because we didn't have poles and didn't want to buy a license for a one day event. It's a stocked pond, so there's a good probability of catching...More
