Let’s Fish!

What you need to know

Attention Campers!! Our camping facilities will be closed for trout season from mid-May to mid-October. Group bookings are welcome during this time on camp stands.

Our fishing locations offer a diverse range of fish, including, Bass (Baars), Catfish (Baber), Carp (Karp), Tilapia (Kurper) and Trout (Forel).

Winter

As soon as the water temperature reaches 22°C, we stock the dams with trout. Depending on Mother Nature this season is normally from April to October.

We try to get different species of trout every year. We have been fortunate to stocked Rainbow, Golden, Brown, and Red trout in the past.

Summer

As soon as the water temperature reaches 25°C, we stock the dams with red-breasted and blue tilapia. Depending on Mother Nature this season is from November to March.
Carp – is available all year round
Bass – as soon as their spawning season is over, they start biting.
Catfish – as soon as the water conditions are right and they wake from their lazy winter slumber, they start biting.

If you’re planning a fishing trip at Wonderland45, it’s important to know the rules for each species you plan to catch.

 

Here are the guidelines for Carp, Bass, Catfish, Tilapia, and Trout:

Carp, Bass, and Catfish:

  • These species are strictly catch and release.
  • If the fish is injured, bleeding, dying, or die when caught, it must be taken to the fish station for cleaning, and you will be responsible for the cost.

Trout:

  • Catch and release is allowed when caught with a fly-fishing rod and fly (NO bait allowed with a fly).
  • Catch and buy is allowed in dams indicated during the season.
  • If the fish is injured, bleeding, dying, or die when caught, it must be taken to the fish station for cleaning, and you will be responsible for the cost.

Tilapia:

  • Catch and release is allowed in Dam 2, 4, and 5.
