  • This is a fantastic and surprisingly large place for families to enjoy. There is a ton to do here. A tram ride that takes you around the grounds to see where and how the fish are raised. A very long, ...  more »

  • This is a good place to take the family. I've fished all my life and still learned a lot. Educational for all ages. Be sure to watch the dive and take the tram tour. Good half day or all day adventure...  more »

  • My fiancee took her 4 yr old grandson and had the time of their lives and cannot wait to return! So very impressive and so much to see and do! She couldn't believe the negative comments from Levi C. above and she said that "if fishing was not your thing" then why in the world would you bother to step foot in the place to begin with? It is a wonderful place with SO much to see and do and incredibly inexpensive as well! She said every time she goes she is more impressed than the last time! The staff was very helpful and informative as well as friendly! Lots of fun for ALL ages!
  • This is a great place to spend an afternoon! Very educational,dive show to entertain the kids and teach them about underwater life in Tx rivers lakes and streams. Beautiful nature walking trail with native plants and trees. Kids and their parents can also fish in the stocked tank on grounds. The center provides all fishing gear too! There are also tram tours to take you around the grounds to see the hatchery ponds. Lots of indoor and outdoor exhibits. Very cool place!
  • Some of the indoor exhibits could use an update, but this is a great spot worth a visit for anyone nearby. Be sure to take the tram tour of the hatchery and take the nature trail back. The fishing ponds are open to all ages and have some true trophies lurking below the surface. The Fisheries Center is a great value and the people staffing the center are very patient and kind.
  • Brought the pack here today. Always a highlight and would definitely recommend the dive show as well as the tram tour to visit the tanks. Took extra time to fish with the boys. Great to support TPWD and see the work they do each day to stock our TX lakes and rivers.
  • What a great way to spend the day! Great staff, great prices and so much fun! We will be back.
