At Anotoki Salmon one can catch their own salmon, which then will be smoked for you. You can buy/order their produce as well.

Went with our kids and it was a great experience. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Well worth the time spent as you will definitely catch a Salmon. Highly recommend this place.

Unfortunately arrived when there was a salmon cull so wasn't as good as it could have been. Lovely situation with the little fishing lake. Salmon scones were delicious.9
