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. We caught four trout & had them cleaned for about $43. Overall, great outdoor mountain... More

You are guaranteed to catch a fish. The owner was a very nice man who came out and gave my girlfriend a quick lesson and she was able to catch a few fish. He even cleaned them up and filleted them for us. We cooked them up for lunch and they were amazing!

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 CATCH a 2-pound trout. My wife and I caught six one and a half pound... 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.

If you have been fishing on lakes in Florida where is it difficult to catch fish, this is a great place to take kids of any age. We had a blast. The road to get there is a little narrow, so watch out for the school bus.

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 to be creative and figure out how to cast and NOT catch a fish. You... 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 and we were greeted warmly when we pulled in. We got our poles and bait... 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. They provide a pole, bait and a bucket for $2 per person. We walked away... More

We tried to fish in the rivers and didn't catch anything so we went to Coopers Creek. They were so nice and helpful and explained everything with patience and genuinely wanted us to have fun and catch fish. Within 5 minutes we caught our first trout. We ended up catching 6 and had to stop (because you have to pay... More
