My partner & I went here yesterday. We both had the day off, ventured to Lake Mountain & Marysville. We wanted to go the farm, so swung past on the way home. There was one to be seen for about 5mins, but the manager soon turned up. As grumpy as he was, he was holding a massive salmon he'd just... More

Lovely family business and totally into sharing the experience of their place from an environmental, sustainable, recreational, experiential place - lovely environment and smoked trout a delight, special place to introduce kids to fishing and remind oneself of how we once did simple things so exceptionally well. Free barbecues to cook your own catch - very cool.

if you miss this during your visit and you will not know what you are missing. Best smoked trout ever....believe me. Recent renovations make this a very inviting option.

Great experience for young kids to catch their first fish. There are several ponds but the small one to the right gives you instant results. We tried the ponds down the hill but got no bites. The place is a little run down but what matters is the fun factor. The proprietors are an old couple, grumpy old man but... More

We were almost denied admission into the farm by a very gruff old gentleman manning the entrance. We were charged $35 entrance fee (which I think was fair and actually low for our numbers). However, as I was paying fee, the eleven year old daughter of my friend commented "Oh this is too much (it wasn't in rude tune). This... More

Brought my 13 month old son, my wife and a few friends along with expectations of some easy and fun fishing. We arrived at 11:30AM on a fairly warm and sunny day. The property is beautiful - many ponds to choose from with differing levels of difficulty and plenty of BBQ's around to use. We stayed for 3 hours and... More

Visited the trout farm in early August. Arrived at around 11am. Was nice and quiet. The elderly manager explained where we could fish. He advised the top ponds would be easier to catch fish in. Took my 2 young boys to the top pond and baited up. Within seconds of the first line going in a trout was hooked. Next... More

We visited this trout farms 3 times. The first time was 6 years ago I went there with my in laws in a raining day so couldn't enjoy much. We played a while in the deepest pond and unfortunately got my hook stuck to the bottom of the pond and had to have the line cut - the boy (maybe... More
