Rainbow Trout fishing!!

Where else can you go that is so close to Portland Oregon for rainbow trout fishing in a lake setting? Want the kids to have a great trout fishing experience and enjoy the great Oregon outdoors? Then we're the u-catch trout fishing place for you!

Adults and children alike delight in catching glistening rainbow trout from our well-stocked lake and pond!

No equipment necessary!

Don't have a fishing pole or bait? No worries! With our general entrance fee of $5 per person we supply your family with poles and bait!
Fishing is charged by the pound before they are cleaned at $8 per pound. Most of the time our fish weigh around 1/2 to 1 pound each (11 to 14 inch fish). We have a very nice cleaning station for you to clean your fish, and if you need a bit of instruction we can teach you to clean your fish!

Hours of operation:

Fishing and Paddle boats are closed for the season and will reopen sometime April 2022. We do close in the summer for concerts, so please check the calendar page before coming out to save you disappointment.

You don't need a fishing license

Fishing is available May 1st through September and no licenses are necessary at Horning's Hideout(see news column for closed dates). We are also wheel -chair accessible and have good gravel paths surrounding our 4 1/2 acre lake. Access around the lake is only by foot, we do not allow cars to drive to various areas so please be prepared to carry your gear.

Fly fishing

Fly fishing catch and release is now closed for the summer, the waters are too warm for good releases.

When open, it costs $15 an hour. To fly fish you must have a fly pole, barbless hooks, keep fish in the water and if you must handle the fish wet your hands first so it does not harm the fish. Very gentle releases are required. You can pay at the pay station, the pay station calculates an entrance fee of $5 per person, so for each hour ($15) of fly fishing you would figure out the number that comes close to the hours that you are there. Example, 2 hours fly fishing is $30, so at the pay station you put in the number 6, for then you would pay $30.

Only fly fishermen are permitted to catch and release fish.
If you have any questions please call or email us to review current catch are release rules.

Paddle boats!

Paddle boats are open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, 9 AM to 5 PM. We offer paddle boats on the lake for those who want to have some fun paddling. The paddle boats are $10 per half hour. There is no fishing allowed from the boats because the lines always get tangled in the paddles.

We do not allow other boats or kayaks on the lake.
