Tuki Trout Farm Fishing

At Tuki you are guaranteed to catch a trout. The trout stocked at Tuki are rainbow trout. They are not put into the ponds till they are about 300gm each.

Imagine the look on your child’s face when they catch their first fish! Have the camera at the ready! Tuki Trout Farm has played host to many wonderful days where Grandpa and Grandson fish together or where families enjoy the thrill of catching a fish for the first time. It is all and so much more is possible at Tuki.

What do you need to bring?

You do not need to bring anything, we have fishing rods, bait and nets for hire. But if you are a keen fisherman and want to use your own equipment you can do that to. We have a dedicated pond where you can relax take in the vista while catching a fish or three.

What happens with the fish I catch?

When you have caught your trout we will clean and package it for you to take home, or you can have it cooked in the restaurant for lunch. Trout taste best as a smaller fish, so a catch of three will be about a kilogram in weight. These are weighed and cleaned for you to take home.

How much does the fish cost?

The trout you catch will cost you $16.50 a kilogram. At Tuki we smoke a batch of trout every week, these are smoked in our smokehouse over hardwood,then kryovaced for your convenience.

These smoked trout are $30.00kg and have a life of about 6 weeks under refrigeration.


The greatest asset we have at Tuki is a location. Sitting on top of the hill we have 80 kilometres of uninterrupted views of the Loddon Campaspe Valley. We also have plenty of car parking spaces, wheelchair access and a selection of different outdoor picnic areas. The restaurant is fully licensed stocking an interesting selection of local wine, beer, spirits, soft drink and regional mineral water.
