Had a great time but too short since the fish strike quickly and there's no catch and release. They will clean and filet the fish for you but you have to debone them yourself. If you like fish and are staying where you can cook this is a good bet. Pretty sure even a toddler coul catc catch a fish... More

Great for kids, took my grandson fishing here and he loved it. Keep an eye out for the amount of fish you catch, you have to pay per pound and it can become expensive.

very easy to catch. Just wish you could pay for a time limit & do catch & release. Did have a delicious dinner & the staff was very personable.

We went on a trip hoping to go fishing on the river and enjoy the experience. Talking with the owner of a nearby bait shop he told us it would be a waste of time to go on the river but that he knew someone who could help 'show' us how to fish. Taking his advice, myself and 3 others... More

My husband suggested stopping to catch trout on our way to our cabin for the weekend. What a great find! It's a short trek up an unpaved road, but friendly service and reasonable price for fresh caught trout. $2 per person to fish, but all gear is supplied and fish is around $5 per pound. We caught two for dinner... More

Our 3&5yr old had a blast. Catching the fish is like throwing a bleeding chum bag into a starving shark tank... Great for the kids.l, bad for the wallet! Its no catch and release so every time you catch one you have to keep it. And pay almost 5$ a lb for it. ( you can take it with or... More

We took our boys to have a good time and boy did we get it. We caught 9 big trout that weighed enough to pay 69.00 for the fish and to fish and to be gutted. But had a great time. Fish are always biting.

We have a house in nearby Sylva and have taken to stopping by the Cooper Creek trout farm any time we are in the Bryson City area to catch some fresh trout for dinner. It is surprisingly difficult to get fresh trout in the area grocery stores. The fishing itself is pretty stress-free and easy, and this past weekend we... More

Great thing to do. My kids caught their first fish ever so they were very excited. They caught the fish within only a minute or two though!! I wish it had taken a little longer so we could have enjoyed the experience more. They staff was very friendly and it's a beautiful place. Overall, we had a good experience. Wonderful... More

Our kids loved it. Dropped the line and immediately caught a fish. We had 9 fish before we knew it. You keep what you catch so it was a bit of sticker shock when we brought the fish up to be weighed and cleaned.
