Loved this place. The people staff are wonderful in helping cleaning the catch. Price for fresh fish is for value. Bbq area and great fun for the kids to catch there first one. 5 stars

Went on a Sunday afternoon. Able to catch first trout in 2 minutes. Took some time to catch salmon. Pay for what you catch. Aud 17 per KG for trout. Also there is option to bbq near to the place. No entry fee.

Fantastic experience and a great concept. My partner caught a 2 kilo plus salmon. Sheltered BBQs tables and chairs available. We brought our own salads and had a tremendous experience. The salmon gave us several meals. We will be re-visiting at least once per year....More

Very friendly and nice place to pass some time. The entree fee isn't much and when you get some fish you have to pay per kilo. The trouts were really easy to catch, but the salmon were difficult. You can ask for tips to catch...More

Stopped off at the shop to buy some delicious trout paste. Had bought some on a previous visit and again - was not disappointed. Worth the visit.

I visited on Saturday 17 Feb and had a great time with my 12yo son. The facility is fairly straight forward - pay a very cheap entry fee, catch fish, pay for what you catch. Your time spent here could be very quick (10-15 mins)...More

Our first visit to the Buxton trout and salmon farm was a lot of fun. I got to bait hooks, take hooks out of caught fish and bait more hooks. It’s a lot of fun if you follow instructions were given at the cash register...More

Great place to stop and catch some fish. I was asking what’s for dinner tonight, guess it’s fish. You can use rods baits nets and buckets here for easier use and relatively cheap activity
