Cold Springs Trout Farm


By Ashlee Prisbrey from Topsy Turvy

Fishing involves gear, a fishing licence and hours of waiting, right? Some people think that's the best part, the quite, the time, the waiting... but not kids, at least not MY kids. My kids like catching fish immediately! They also like seeing and feeding the fish. So when my oldest son started asking about going fishing I started looking around for a fish farm!

I was SO happy to find one close by! Cold Springs Trout Farm is absolutely lovely! The ponds were full, the area was so so SO beautiful! My kids were so happy and had a GREAT time! We not only had fun catching fish, but they sold fish food for 25 cents a FULL cup and the kids spent a ton of time feeding the kids.

You pay by the fish, and they gut them for you (actually my boys favorite part was watching that part!). And for just a bit extra they will also filet them for you (which makes it easy to take home and cook). They also have a fly fishing pond if your interested. They also have two areas for groups, large and small, with grills, tables, etc... Here is their new brochure for more information (and a map)

  1. So glad to know about this. I only take my kids fishing at the State Fair once a year when we don't need a license and they bait the pole and stock the pond. It is good to know this is a place I can go anytime during the year. My kids ask to go fishing all summer. I've got to try this out.
