At Grandfather Trout Farm, we make it simple and easy to watch the excitement on your kids' faces when they land their first fish. Grandfather Trout Farm is literally a NC attraction in and of itself!

You may bring your own or we will fit you with the size you need. All bait and tackle are furnished at no charge. We supply you with a bucket, towel, net and gear for your fishing needs. Don’t worry if you’ve never fished a day in your life, we’ll be happy to help you get started.

For some people, cleaning their catch is part of the fun of fishing, and you may do so, or we will clean them for you for .50 cents each. We will filet or clean your trout whole whatever you prefer.

Not only do we have fishing, but we have gem mining with a gift shop and a nine-hole miniature golf course. The golf is free to anyone who fishes or gem mines.
