Star Prairie Trout Farm

Since 1856, Star Prairie's ice-cold spring water has provided an ideal natural habitat for commercial trout-raising. Upon arrival at the farm, you will find an area of ponds out of which you can fish. A fishing license is not required. The cost of the fish is determined by its weight, and we do not have a catch-and-release system. Our tour will include a walk through the farm and a view of our Class A hatchery, where we raise trout from eggs. Experience fish farming and learn firsthand how locally grown, fresh fish are raised on today's farms. During your visit, you'll find free activities including farm tours, cooking demonstrations, Japanese fish painting, recipes and educational talks to all of our visitors.
