We took the boys and their friends to catch some trout. They were easy to catch and they clean the catch for you for a fee. Clean flow through water and safe surronding, We all enjoyed them for Dinner .

This a stocked pond absolutely loaded with rainbow trout. Expect to have a fish on the line in under 30 seconds. Don't plan on staying for long, you have to buy what you catch and there is no catch and release. Beautiful fish but not...More

The drive up Cooper Creek Road was fun in itself. The farm is in a very remote area and we enjoyed scenery off the beaten path. The owner attended to us by giving us rods, bait, and buckets. We had nine people and seven fished....More

They do not allow catch and release. I love this place but beware. 14 fish will cost about $120 all total. I recommend families just get 1 rod and take turns to make the experience last longer.

You should call ahead to verify but I think it was a per pound price.

If I remember correctly they clean the fish for free... well, I should say its included in the price of the fish. Really Nice place and very friendly staff!!
