FLY FISHING is always a safe bet at the Mill. With a four acre rainbow-stocked spring-fed lake, five smaller ponds, spring creeks and waterfalls the fishing is always great. Enjoy an especially fun day by hiring one of our guides for a half or full day. They know all the great spots and what fish are eating for dinner these days. Everyone who hires one of our guides has fun all day. Fly fishing in winter is a unique experience for the angler-enthusiast who just can’t get enough of it! A guide will make the experience a lot more fun in making sure you are dressed properly and know the ins and outs of cold-weather fishing. Enhance your ski vacation spending a day on the river.
