The ultimate salmon fishing experience!  Catch your own chinook salmon in the glacial waters next to our cafe.  No gear required (all provided) and no fishing experience needed.  Take home your cleaned (gilled and gutted) whole salmon, or you can ask for it to be filleted for you (extra charge applies).  This is a family friendly attraction - either catch a fish yourself or sit in our landscaped garden and watch the excitement.  This is a big fish experience - no tiddlers here and expect them to put up a fight as you reel them in!

Further information:

  • You must purchase what you catch - there is no catch and release.
  • The number of fish you want to catch equals the number of participants you should book e.g. 15 minutes - 1 participant = catching 1 fish; 30 minutes - 2 participants = catching 2 fish.
  • There is a 15 minute time buffer after each booking to allow for any delays.
  • If you have a group of people, everyone is welcome to the Catch-A-Fish area, so please only book the number of participants equal to the number of fish you want to catch/purchase.
  • Bookings can be made up to 3 weeks in advance.
  • Same day bookings are unavailable - you will need to try your luck as a walk-in!
  • The last timeslot for fishing is 2:45pm as Catch-A-Fish closes at 3pm.
  • Average sizes of salmon in the pond will be displayed.  Pond contains salmon between 2kg and 4kg.  If you catch a salmon over the 4kg upper limit, you can swap this for a smaller fish.
  • Salmon is weighed after being caught and the cost is $30 per kg.
  • Bookings are recommended to secure a spot and there is a $15 refundable booking fee ($15 will be taken off the final price of your salmon).
  • To have your salmon filleted, there is a $10 additional charge.
  • Children 12 years and under must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Your salmon will be packaged with ice for you to take home.  Insulated boxes are available for an extra charge, or bring a chilly bin yourself.
