Amazing Experience ★★★★★

What an amazing place. Murray the fishing guide was incredible! He could not have been more enthusiastic, informative and helpful. My daughter caught a huge salmon which he smoked and we took with us. Bookings essential to avoid disappointment!

OMG! fantastic Complex ★★★★★

Where do I start..tranquil setting, beautiful lakes fill of fish…You catch it . . they cook it! The staff were friendly and we caught 2 very fine salmon. We opted to get them both hot smoked and we ate one on site. Everything was perfect. This is a MUST do in Omarama.

Magic! ★★★★★

This place is magic kid friendly, dog tolerant , fantastic wine , great food and a wonderful setting… Don’t pass this place by!

Quick stop: lovely place ★★★★

We stopped by here on our way from Mt Cook to Queenstown because the Catch Your Own Salmon sign caught our eye. Fortunately we arrived before fishing stops at 4.30 pm

For someone with no prior fishing experience it was pretty easy. They set up the fishing rod and line and bait for you, teach you some how to cast and reel. you just cast into the pond and wait. I got it on my 3rd try and the guy Wyatt helps you to net it after you reel it.

We requested the salmon smoked to go and it takes abt 30 min and they pack it nicely for you. Nice layout to relax In gardens while waiting.

I can imagine great fun for families with little kids who want to have a go at fishing. It cost about $50 if you catch one and apparently you dont pay if you don’t catch it.

Would recommend for families with little kids or those who just want an easy go at catching your own dinner. We enjoyed the salmon, beautifully cooked!

Caught, ate, drank and walked ★★★★★

A really good experience. And an ace recommendation from the man Neville at the Sierra Motel.
I managed to catch, on fly, a 3lb salmon. Result. The fish was smoked and then we ate it for dinner (thanks Carol) that night whilst drinking the excellent wine produced from the Ladybird vineyard adjacent to the restaurant. And then to cap it off, we marched to the top of the hill behind the restaurant and watched the sun go do down over the valley.
Magical, must do.

Great day for three generations ★★★★★

Had a great day with grandparents and granddaughters all catching and eating salmon. Nice walk up the hill and a very nice estate Pinot noir to round off the trip. It was very busy but staff handled it well even if some customers couldn’t.
It was our third visit and we’ll keep on coming back.
