Thanks for your interest in Spring Valley Trout farm.

We are family owned and operated, celebrating our 49th anniversary this year.

It's a lovely setting with accommodations for the handicapped.

Spring Valley sits on 20 acres of carefully maintained grounds in a park setting. Visitors can stroll in the park, which includes 9 spring fed ponds ranging from a 1/2 acre to an acre in size. On these grounds are located two  covered picnic pavilions which seat up to 100 people each, a children's play area, and an authentic American log cabin, used as a fishing lodge with Handicap restrooms and snack bar. The cabin is available for your groups visit and is a replica of fishing cabins from the north.








EVERYONE who wants to catches a fish.  

You pay an admission fee of $5.00 per person, then you pay for the fish you catch by the pound (see below for prices per pound).

This admission charge includes use of picnic grounds, cane poles, and bait. You can use our grills to cook your fish, please bring charcoal and picnic supplies. We also ice and package your fish to enjoy at home. We'll even supply our favorite recipes.

Children under age 5 enter the park for free and do not pay the admission charge.

Rainbow trout are $7.39 per lb. and average l2 to 16 inches in length and one lb (normally feeds two people). We'll clean your trout for .30 each and even de-bone it for an additional .25 each if you wish.

Sorry NO artificial bait, lures, or fly-fishing allowed.


Farm-Raised Channel Catfish are $5.79 per lb. & average 1 to 2 lbs. each.  We'll clean these guys for .50 each and de-bone them for and additional .25 each.  We encourage you to bring your own spinning rod with at least a 10-lb. test line, especially for Catfish fishing. This will keep those fellers on the line and you'll have a lot more fun.

You only pay for the fish you catch
