Hatchery Operations

The quality and flavor of any edible living thing is directly affected by the environment that it lives and grows in and by the food it consumes. It is no secret that trout prefer cold, clear, high quality water. Our water supply comes from a series of springs that produce over 60,000 gallons of 43° water per hour! Even on the warmest summer day, our water does not exceed 50° nor will our water freeze on the coldest winter day. Chances are in your lifetime, you'll never see water of a higher quality. This basically, is the environment our trout spend their entire lives in. The trout are fed a high quality balanced diet which, along with the pure spring water, produces the finest tasting trout to be found anywhere in the world. The diet of our trout is more complete than their wild counterparts. Our feed is trucked from almost 2,000 miles away and it's the best we can buy in North America. It is specially formulated to provide a balanced diet of protein, fat and fiber for our trout.

So bring your family and friends for the best fishing vacation they'll ever have and one they'll never forget. We also stock private and public ponds with our quality trout and will provide walleye, blue gill and perch by special order.
