Star Prairie Trout Farm
Aerial View of Star Prairie Trout Farm
Since 1856, Star Prairie’s ice-cold spring water has provided an ideal natural habitat for commercial trout-raising. Fifteen hundred gallons per minute of flow at a steady rate and temperature provide open water and continuous growth and harvests year-round.
PREMIUM QUALITY TROUT are now available delivered direct from these springs to all Twin Cities area fish lovers. Quality is assured by our swift water flow, 47° degree temperature and natural, custom feeding. Freshness is assured by our proximity--less than an hour from Minneapolis and St. Paul--and by our commitment to personalized service.
In our Class A hatchery, we raise trout from eggs. It takes about 22 months for trout to reach adult size of 12 inches long and 3/4 pound. As they grow, trout progress to different ponds according to size.
FEE FISHING! We feature the excitement of trout angling on the premises from May through September, and year-round by appointment. Our scenic, park-like grounds are bordered to the north by Apple River whitewater.
NO LIMIT AND NO LICENSE REQUIRED! Tackle is furnished and we will clean and ice your catch for a small fee. We suggest bringing a cooler to transport fish. Picnic facilities are also available.
