Wild Billy Lake has been managed as a catch and release fishery for big rainbows since 1996. The lake is fly fishing only with barbless hooks. We have 5 prams available for your use. There is an extra fee for fishing which allows all members of your group to fish. Go to our Book Your Trip page for details.
July 2021: after an outstanding spring and early summer fishery, the unprecedented June heat wave brought the inevitable poor summer water conditions sooner than anticipated. We are currently not accepting any bookings which include fishing so that we can protect our fish during this stressful period when the trout are the most vulnerable. Mother Nature is in command and we hope to be fishing again by September. Based on our recent successes, we anticipate a great fall fishery.
MAY 2021: Spectacular! After some slow fishing for the past couple of years, Wild Billy Lake has turned back on! Our clients have been catching a lot of fish. Fish are ranging in size from 18-22” to the occasional 6-8 pound beasts. the average fish is running around 4 pounds. They‘re all very healthy, active fish that are fighting like steelhead. Come and join us to see for yourself!
