Great ambiance, enjoy fishing your own salmon and having it smoked on the spot! Good food at the Tame Eel café and very familial atmosphere with the animals and the path next to the river to feed the eel. Fun day!

Seems to have gone downhill. Heaps of people fishing but nothing being caught. Some shade around the main pond would be good.

This is a popular stop when in Golden Bay, and for good reason. You can just look around the salmon farm and see the tame eels for free. There's a cafe and fishing which you pay for. The area is pretty, the stream is crystal...More

Hi Joy, that's $22.00 per kilo of life weight. Fish cleaning service included hot smoking from $10.00. Fish are between 1 and 2 kilo's at the moment.
