The cold, clear mountain stream waters in western North Carolina provide an excellent home for rainbow trout. Recreational trout fishing in our ponds requires no fishing license or elaborate equipment so why not plan on catching your own trout meal! Better yet…since there are no limits, catch your next meal and enough to take home to enjoy later!

There is no other fish quite like trout. Trout has a special, delicate flavor, which is delicious in itself, or it can be enhanced by the addition of various batters and sauces. There are no great mysteries to its successful preparation.

Never fished a day in your life? No Worries! We provide free bait & tackle, so you only pay for what you catch & we'll even clean it for you! A great family outing for young and old alike, church groups, family reunions, or even school field trips (large groups call for reservations).
