Bill's Fishin' Hole (formerly the Troutlodge U-Fish) is a family-friendly facility designed to give kids and adults alike the opportunity to catch the finest Rainbow trout in the Pacific Northwest. Located between Orting and South Prairie, just off Hwy 162, we are open year-round*. The hours we are open depend on the season, so please see our Hours & Directions page for current operating hours. Reservations are not required (though requested for groups), so just come see us and catch the big one anytime.
FacilitiesWhen you do arrive, you will find that the facility consists of three large fishing ponds and a series of hatchery raceways. For those up for the big challenge, the two smaller fishing ponds are stocked with "Trophy-size" Rainbow trout, measuring 3 lbs or more! The main fishing pond, stocked with hundreds of 10-14" rainbow trout, has a large permanent awning covering one side, so fishing can happen come rain or shine. Below the awning are a number of picnic tables and a snack bar, making Bill's Fishin' Hole a perfect setting for group functions. Please see our Photo Gallery for a close-up look at our facilities and happy customers.
