A great place for our grandchildren

Staff are very friendly and informative of how the fishery works. Options for Fly or Spin rods. Caught a few and came back later in the afternoon for another go. Not much of a challenge to catch a Trout, look for less obvious area to catch the bigger ones. Had a blast

We spent a hour and a half at this very scenic facility and we were greeted by very enthusiastic staff .we were able to view the fish being fed and enjoyed catching six beautiful fish that were promptly cleaned by the staff .a wonderful experience which we certainly will enjoy again.

Cant recommend this enough. Took my two kids and autistic brother to Mountain Stream Fishery, all never caught a fish before, it didn't take long and all three had caught a great sized fish!! Very cheap equipment hire, super friendly staff that even took to time to explain about the fish and clean them (and iced) while we waited. Well... More

We caught 6 great trout in a matter of minutes then watched them be weighed, gutted and cleaned at just $10 per kg. Will eat some fresh and freeze some for later. Friendly, helpful staff and a great experience. Great for kids as it's more action than the normal patience required for fishing. FUN for all the family.

Spectacular scenery and not far from Launceston. Lovely clean water and great hosts, well maintained and no gate charge, just paying for what we caught.

Went there totally unplanned. We drove in and were almost given the run of the place. We were looking over the lake and this nice chap came over to chat with us. We were getting on famously and it turned out he was the owner. What an absolutely nice man, he runs it as a family business and has been... More

Stuart and Suzie are extremely helpful, warm and welcoming and will do anything they can to make your experience the best it can be! Rods and gear are all supplied in the cost and fish... More

While out for a Sunday drive we came across this place and thought we would give it a try. I hadn't fished since I was a small child with my dad (who was an avid fisherman) he would have loved this place. Even I caught a fish it was that easy! Looking for something different to do on the weekend... More
