Trout Fee-Fishing Ponds

  • No License Required
  • No Lure Restrictions
  • No Limit

Generally, trout fee fishing ponds provide everything you need: equipment, bait, nets, etc. You are not required to purchase a state fishing license and there is no limit to the number of trout you can keep. You usually pay by the live weight of fish you catch and you must keep what you catch.

This is an excellent way to entertain out-of-town guests and catch supper at the same time. Kids always enjoy this type of opportunity. The trout are cleaned upon request. If you have questions, please call the trout pond or ask in person.
