Fish are elusive prey, fleeing into reefs to evade anglers and spontaneously sprouting legs to run away from Charles Darwin. Track down slippery targets with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 of Self-Caught Trout and Filleting Services
Using provided fishing poles, hooks, nets, and bait, patrons catch their own trout, which they then purchase for $5.50 per pound. The staff fillets fish ($1.50 each). Visitors can bring a picnic lunch to eat at the pavilion.
Mountain Springs Trout Park
The moss-colored fishing pond at Mountain Springs Trout Park is always rippling. Sometimes, the minor currents that wrinkle its surface come from the underwater movements of shimmering fins. Other times, they're from the line of a child excited to have felt a fish's pull. An armory of fishing poles, lines, hooks, nets, and bait saves visitors the trouble of buying their own gear or climbing the mountains that worms live on top of. Nearby, the staff cleans and fillet the fish, scraping away their rose and emerald scales and packing the fish on ice to be fried, baked, or broiled at a later date.
