The Experience

From Lake to Plate

Catch a Chinook salmon from our spring-fed fishing lakes then relax or explore while our team prepares it for you.

Catch a Chinook Salmon

Fish

We have options to suit everyone from family friendly fishing to trophy fish hunting. Choose your package and we’ll provide you with all your equipment. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time or if you’ve already lost count of the hours you’ve spent fishing – our friendly team will make sure you have a day out to remember.

Your experience and our environment are extremely important to us. Therefore, during busy periods fish limits may apply. To protect our waterways, you cannot use your own fishing equipment in our lakes.

Reel Deal $5 per person

OPENING 15 APRIL! The authentic, low-key, DIY, as-kiwi-as-it-gets 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.

The Reel Deal takes place at Hounds Hollow – our main fishing lake stocked with Chinook salmon that average between 1 – 2.5kg in weight.

Anglers Experience $5 up to 3 people

Let us take you on the fishing adventure of a life time, a premium guided experience – your chance to catch “The Big One”. We’ll let you in on all the secrets, show you how to set up your equipment, select the best lures and teach you everything we know about fishing. With our knowledge, your new skills (and maybe a bit of luck) you’ll land your very own trophy salmon!

The Anglers Experience takes place at The Hub – our premium fishing lake stocked with Chinook salmon that average between 2.5 – 3.5 kg in weight.

Price per kg – $39.95

Prepare

Let us know how you want your fish prepared and we’ll make it happen. 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.

Clean + filletFree
Hot smoked$7 / fish
Sashimi$10 / fish
Cold smoked$20 / fish (exchange your fillet weight for pre-smoked)

Our licenced café serves a selection of quality wines and beers from around the region.

Relax

While we prepare your catch, you relax!

Open to everyone and the perfect rest stop for bikers and hikers, our licensed eatery serves a range of hot and cold drinks alongside hand-selected wines and beers from around the region.

There’s plenty of room for the kids to run around, play in the sand pit, or feed the fish while you sit and relax. Fill your day with fun outdoor activities, walk around the grounds to discover new birdlife and native trees or have a go at our collection of lawn games.

Dine

The courtyard eatery overlooks the fishing lakes so you can enjoy the view while you dine.

Our head chef selects the finest local ingredients to showcase on our tasting platters. Woodfired flatbreads are cooked right in front of you and we even have a kids menu.

Our food is local and seasonal with an emphasis on exceptional taste.

We offer wine tasting matched with the salmon tasting platter so you can experience a whole new level of flavour sensations.
