Welcome to Rainbow Trout Ranch and Campground!

Please Note:  With school back in session, and the unsettled weather bringing thunderstorms and heavy rain through our area most afternoons, we have modified our fishing schedule as follows:  We will be open today, Friday and through the weekend, August 17th through August 20th.  We will be closed weekdays next week and open on Saturday and Sunday, August 26th and 27th.  We will be closed Monday through Thursday of the week after that and be open for Labor Day weekend Friday through Monday, September 1st through 4th.  After Labor Day we will be open only on weekends until cold weather closes us down for the season.

Hello Anglers and Campers,

We restocked the Main Pond with 1,000 pounds of trout on Tuesday, August 15th.

Our hours of operation for fishing are 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., on the dates noted above.  After Labor Day we will be open for fishing on weekends only until cold weather closes us down for the season.  The campground is open through October.

Our price for fish is $0.85 per inch under 12 inches and $1.05 per inch for fish 12 inches and larger.  As a service we will clean your fish and pack them in ice for your trip home.  If time permits, we will bone and fillet your fish as well.  An appropriate tip is expected for these services.

For those of you who are new to our website:  No fishing license is required to fish in our ponds.  We accept all major credit cards.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Vince Fisher, Park Manager
