Lyndon Fish Hatcheries has produced top quality rainbow trout since 2002. As we’ve grown and diversified, we’ve kept our passion for raising healthy rainbow trout and ensuring a positive customer experience. We also value our rural farming roots and the health of our planet. Fish farming helps to provide sustainable food sources in an environmentally friendly way.
We produce millions of eggs and fingerlings with our unique strain of rainbow trout. We supply farms that raise them for their customers and grocery stores across the nation.
Adjacent to the hatchery, seasonally we offer customers the exhilaration of catching feisty rainbow trout at the Lyndon Fishing Pond. Our fee fishing pond caters to anyone interested in fresh & local fish for their dinner table. Lyndon Fishing Pond is an ideal setting for Picnics and Corporate Events.
In 2015 Clarke Rieck, a second-generation fish farmer, took over the business and continues to advance our corporate values and our reputation for quality aquaculture products.
Our team is comprised of knowledgeable and friendly associates who have years of experience in aquaculture and related fields along with outstanding customer service and a passion for fish and the great outdoors.
