Reel Deal ($10 per rod)
The authentic, Kiwi Interactive Fishing Experience, rent out a rod and claim your lucky spot around our lake. It’s as easy as that – even if you’ve never fished before. It may take a few casts (our fish aren’t trained to bite!) but this is the joy of fishing. With a little patience and a little luck you’ll soon be reeling in your lunch. We recommend coming in 1 hour before your lunch booking or time you want to eat.
The Reel Deal takes place at Hounds Hollow – our main fishing lake stocked with Chinook salmon.
One person per family can fish or all can fish, its not just the reeling in of the fish that’s needed, it is the netting and team effort to get that fish onto dry land!
Fish price – $35/kg net weight
Your experience and our environment are extremely important to us. To protect our waterways, you cannot use your own fishing equipment in our lakes.
We have a strict no catch and release policy
Whatever your preference you won’t taste salmon any fresher than this! Hot smoked is our favorite – soft, flaky and juicy with a subtle smoky flavor. Or try sashimi – raw, finely sliced. We can even exchange the fish you caught for previously prepared cold smoked salmon. All options are available to eat-in or takeaway or we can vacuum pack whole fillets so you can prepare it at home. If you don’t want to fish, or just can’t get enough fish, we also sell a range of delicious ready-to-go salmony treats when available.
