- Colebrook Trout Farm - Surrey
We went fishing here last summer. Colebrook Trout Farm is in South
Surrey. A bit primitive, and hard to find. Three tanks hold
the Trout. You rent bamboo poles, and bait. Takes
a while to hook the fish the first time. Fish are farmed and therefore
not that great tasting. Our fish were kind of mushy tasting.
It's not that picturesque either as the tanks are near high tension electrical
wires overhead. But it was fun.
Age group: Four years and up.
Other than renting the bamboo pole and some bait ($1-2), you pay only for
the fish you catch (by weight). Call to get rates.
: You're almost guaranteed to catch something.
: I prefer Fishing at Jericho Beach or Fishing - Ambleside Beach Pier. Some children get a bit upset when the fish is killed.
Phone ahead as they are only open Saturday and Sundays.
To get there via the King George Highway (Highway 99A): Go south just past Highway 10, to Colebrook Road. Go west on Colebrook Road. (We had a difficult time finding the trout farm so bring a road map).
Season: Spring, Summer, Fall
Educational highlights: Life's food chain. The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat.
Fun for the adult?: Yes, bring your camera.
