    Our family took a trip to Willow Springs Lake to let our daughter and her boyfriend, both college students, try to catch their first trout. It was a beautiful day but way too many people. The fishing ...  more »

    Very pretty and well kept grounds. The owners were very helpful and nice to my family and were more than willing to hop in and help with any issues at all! We caught three fish. It is incredibly easy to catch fish here, if you dangle the bait above the water they will try to jump out of the water to get it. Not necessarily my type of fishing but it's great fun for family and kids and you will leave with dinner in hand, unlike some fishing trips I've had before. The fish were also very meaty, were nice sized, and had excellent flavor. Top notch for eating.

    We had the most amazing time with my family. Thanks to Brenda and Randy our trip turned out to be one of the most amazing family reunion. The Cabin was very beautifully decorated the views were amazing the fresh air and greenery was a plus. Thank you again Brenda and Randy for your hospitality for fresh berries and plums they were delicious. We will be back in the future. Thank you again.

    After no luck at bear lake , saw sign of tonto creek. Nice drive up n saw sign trout fishing S o family stop in. No dogs allowed. Nice place kids caught 4 trout within 40 min. Free poles, clean fish n pack in ice. Paid $1 per inch. Well worth the kids experience on fishing. Nice set up , man behind counter not talkative. Family friendly place. Well come back when in payson again.

    Cool little spot to catch a fish and have it prepped for cooking.

    We found it!!! It was a great experience- We caught 4 fish in less than 30 minutes. They cleaned it, put it in a bag with ice ready to go. It's worth the drive from Phoenix to have this experience of a lifetime.
