Pay him Pay to fish and get nothing Can – Rainbow has a new rule , you pay and return the keepers. Not anything like it use to be. ,nasty bathrooms and rude managment!
don't believe the Hype, not a great place to fish – The lakes look good they have spent a fair amount of money to clean up and build up. But the stocking and the attitudes you get from the owner and the workers not good Yes they can be friendly and helpful. But there are days lots of days where their attitude is not good. and i wonder with their so called stocking is that how we pay for it. when you ask about the stock !!! let the lies begin they must not realize fisherman talk no matter who it is black or white we talk.so when you say we stocked on friday and i am talking to a fisherman who was there and leaves because he was there friday didnt catch a fish and is there on saturday thinking your going to stock and you are not .That aint right. the previous owners stocked good and there was no limit. maybe no limit did them in i dont know. but now there is a limit and the stock is weak at best. I wonder the great reviews i see DID THEY COME FROM THE OWNER AND HIS FAMILY.? ME AND MY MOM 65 WOULD COME HERE EVERY OTHER WEEK FROM CINCINNATI SHE DOESNT WANT TO COME BACK .I WILL GIVE IT A TRY AGAIN BUT IF THE BEAR GETS ME AGAIN I WILL GO TO INDIANA tHE CATFISH LAKE THERE IS NO LIMIT . AND I AM POSITIVE I WILL CATCH FISH THERE. I USE TO CATCH FISH HERE ALL THE TIME NOT BACK TO BACK TO BACK SKUNKS.
new owners, fat cats, and good people. – me and a good friend went to rainbow lakes on august 1, 2008 and had a great time and great fishing experience. we caught some real good cats. we met the new owners and were treated really well. the lakes are clean, the grounds are well kept and met some real good people there. in fact we are gong back on the 8th of august and are really looking forward to catching some more fat cats
Not worth it – I moved into town about 10 years ago. l would occasionally see bumper stickers on vehicles that said rainbow lakes. looking for a decent lake, I decided to try them out. Went once and never went back.
I read that rainbow was under new ownership. also read a few negative reviews (2008)about the lake and the new owners. I had to find out for myself the hard way that the reviews were right.
Just returned from the lake. Got there with my wife, bought tickets and proceeded to drive around the lakes to look for a spot my disabled wife would be able to fish.
There were weeds a foot tall around the majority of the lake, not including the weeds in the water along almost the entire shoreline of the lakes.
There is a speed limit sign at the entrance to the lake that says 8 miles per hour. While traveling around the lake I was stopped by the owner that was outside putting up small wooden shelters for "going too fast" they say that the speed limit is 5 mph even though the sign says different.
The Owner had an unbelievably nasty attitude during the confrontation. He started going on about family atmosphere and all the time I could only think that there was nothing family about the way he was chewing me out instead of being more civil in his attitude.
They must be really proud in their accomplishments the way he was going on about cleaning up the lake, getting rid of the Dope heads etc. BUT HIS MAJOR A N A L RETENSIVENESS will most likely drive off the rest of the customers eventually like it did me today.
I proceded back to the entrance/baithouse and explained what had just happened, and got my money back.
I also informed them that I didnt plan on coming back until they changed owners again or attitudes, which they said would never happen in either case. that I had might as well look elsewhere. I think that they are right in this reguard. (You are better off looking elsewhere than to have to submit to their extremely nasty unprofessional demeanor.
got to go – it is the best place to got its a place for familys its a place for fun go to rainbow lakes most fun place on earth
NOT A FAMILY ENVIRONMENT!!!! – THERE WAS NOTHING FAMILY ABOUT IT!!!!!!! THE PLACE WAS GROSS! I WATCHED THE OWNER DUMP OUT THE TRASH CANS INTO THE WATER !!!!!!THE OWNER WAS THE RUDEST, MOST UNPROFESSIONAL PERSON THAT I HAD EVER MET!!!!! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FISHING LICENSE!x!x!!STAY AWAY!
Worse Dive In The Country – Where do I start. The bathroom/outhouse has black mold and the stench would gag a maggot. If you go bring your own toilet paper and gas mask. The owners are rude and disrespectful. May have big catfish but not worth the health risk. Do Not Recommend, NEGATIVE FIVE STARS
