Big Brown Fish & Pay Lakes offers 3 fishing ponds. Two are stocked with trout and one is stocked with largemouth bass. No fishing license is required.
The lakes and ponds are continuously stocked with thousands of 12 – 20″+ trout from Big Brown’s hatchery. As of 2020, trout average 1.5 lbs per fish, so the cost is around $11.25/fish. Bass are typically 1.5 lbs also so an average bass would cost $16.15/fish.
Bass prefer warmer water, so they bite faster in the mornings of summer months; June, July, and August. Trout prefer colder water, but with a constant supply of cold water to the ponds, they keep biting even on the hottest days.
Big Brown’s hatchery has been raising trout since 1971. They raise Brook, Brown, Rainbow, and Golden Rainbow Trout, as well as Largemouth Bass and Bluegill. The minimum order is $300, so we suggest you get in there and catch a couple on your own. It’s fun!
