Rushing Waters Fisheries Trout Farm
Tucked in the rolling hills of Wisconsin’s Southern Kettle Moraine, Rushing Waters is the most beautiful fishery in the United States. On 80 acres of pristine forests and valleys, 56 ponds are fed with crystal-clear artesian spring water. These deep underground springs maintain a very cold water temperature ideal for producing healthy rainbow trout year round.

Wisconsin’s All Natural Trout Farm
Artesian springs feed pure clean water through the farm’s 56 ponds and raceways. The year-around water temperature of 49° helps Rushing Waters produce the highest quality trout on the market. All-Natural farm practices with out the use of chemicals or antibiotics make Rushing Waters trout your best choice. Our trout are raised in unique habitats that mimic their native environment. With grass boarders and earthen bottoms our ponds contain a diverse ecosystem of aquatic life and provide our trout with access to wild food sources.
Swimming When You Order
Our farm staff works in the ponds year-round, harvesting fish by hand to order. They are immediately processed on site in our all-new modern processing plant. Our ultra fresh and consistently high quality fish are delivered to grocers, specialty stores and restaurants throughout the nation.

Each fish is prepared with a flavorful brine of salt, sugar, spices and finished with the savory smoke of northern hardwoods.
