Our nursery located on Martin Rd, just outside Boiling Springs is one of the largest co-op nurseries on the east coast. Each summer the PA Fish Commission gives us 35,000 or so fingerling trout to raise. Volunteers fill the automatic feeders each morning and clean any clogged screens. The hatchery manager (also a volunteer) keeps the nursery running and makes sure the fish are healthy. The next spring we begin stocking these fish in PUBLIC water on the upper Yellow Breeches creek.
We feed the fish a special food that results in faster growth and unbelievably bright colors.
