My wife and I have been coming to the "trout farm" for more than 4 years. It is one of the highlights of our visits ti the Payson area! My wife always manages to catch 4-6 nice sized size Rainbow trout, which we take back to our lodging and cook on the grill. Fresh trout on the grill is hard... More

We were planning our daughters wedding and got Brenda's name from a friend in Payson. She made everything for the wedding easy. Both Randy and Brenda, went out of their way to insure that every last detail was taken care of. They even provided us with names and numbers of outside vendors to help make our daughters wedding perfect in... More

I will say that this is the first time that I have ever left a review on anything but felt it was necessary due to the very poor customer service that the owners provide to their paying customers. If you ever want to plan an event here such as a wedding, Ihighly recommend going else where. They will be super... More

Upon going thru the gate we had observed a small parking lot to the right and a small dirt road to our left.Our GPS had told us... More

Beat buying 2 licenses and bringing our tackle with no guarantee of catching a trout. This place charges $1 an inch for any fish you catch and if you don't catch you don't pay. We caught 4 which ranged from 8"-14". You are provided with tackle and bait. Very beautiful small lake with comfy chairs and shade. Nice way to... More

Our daughter wanted to have her wedding outdoors in open space so everyone in the wedding could walk around freely instead of sitting at a table inside a ballroom. WE FOUND THE PERFECT PLACE FOR THE WEDDING!! This place is PERFECT for a wedding, reunion, or any other celebration/gathering! It is part of the Arizona Tonto National Park. The wedding... More

You don't need licenses, bait, poles, or buckets. They provide everything and you just pay per inch of the fish you catch. They even clean them and bag them for you. Wonderful fun.

We spent the day here with grandpa, grandma, aunt, uncles, and cousins. It was a perfect day to spend with the kids and everyone had some good old relaxation. We caught fish and barbecued them right up afterward. It was a great experience for the kids. This is a beautiful and clean place with charm around every corner. We had... More

We happened to see the sign for this private fishing ranch and stopped in. The grounds were beautiful with a nice store/visitor center, a WELL stocked artificial pond, a large cabin that is rented out and my favorite-an old barn down in the draw.
