We found this gem on our way out of town. Wish we had found it sooner. We had a great time and enjoyed some great conversation with the owner.

This is the place to go... not a oittle muddy pond with dying fish. Fish are active hungry and you will hit your limit in 20 min.... SO take your time. Staff is very helpful

We stopped to look around and ended up feeding the fish and buying local honey. The free roaming chicken caught the kids off guard! It’s a bit remote but the people are very nice

Favorite part was learning about the trout and how they are raised. Fishing was fun for the youngest kids, a little to easy for the older kids and adults. The filets we brought home are excellent!
