We appreciate your interest in purchasing live trout! We have suffered extreme drought and heat during our 2022 season. When this occurs, we are severely impacted by the quantity of fish we are able to raise. It may take us multiple seasons too retutrn to a normal quantity. We will do our best to ensure that you receive your order requests but cannot guarantee quantities until we return to a normal growing season. We will also sell out fast each year, please contact us early regarding order requests. Priority will be given to businesses and recurring customers.

Rainbow Trout are the most popular fish stocked. They grow fast, adapt to most ponds, and are easily caught. Rainbow trout do best in water between 50-70 degrees
Tiger Trout are hybrids, formed by crossing Brook trout and Brown trout. These fish are aggressive and fun to catch. They do well in 50-75 degree water. These fish are very hardy! They are very similar to the browns but easier to catch!
Brown Trout are a favorite of many experienced anglers. They can be hard to catch and they are aggressive towards other fish. Brown trout grow big and have been know to survive in water up to 75 degrees. Their growth is stunted in water under 55 degrees.
Brook Trout are another favorite of fisherman because they are always ready to take a fly. These fish generally do not grow past 20 inches, unless conditions are ideal. Brook trout can be aggressive, but because of their size, this usually is not a problem for your smaller fish. These fish are great for small mountain ponds where the water is clean and cold (below 65 degrees is best).
In an effort to help protect native Utah fish species, we do offer sterile (triploid) trout in all the species.
Our fish are priced by their length. The prices vary by species.

Purchasing reproducing fish with a COR permit will be a growing advantage. It is a valid for 5 years and we generally have the highest quantity of reproducing fish available to sell as the demand on them is smaller.
“If you plan to stock reproducing trout, you likely need a COR. The exception is if you plan to purchase sterile trout species and stock them into a properly screened pond that is not on a natural stream channel.” An easy tool is to: Click here, type your address in and see what rules apply to your area!.
A COR is required if No COR is required if You are purchasing a non-salmonid You are purchasing a sterile salmonid for stocking into a screened pond that is not on a natural stream channel Your pond is not screened You are purchasing a fertile salmonid that will be stocked into areas identified on the map as allowing fertile salmonids if your pond is screened and not on a natural stream channel Your pond is on a natural stream channel You are purchasing a fertile salmonid that is being stocked within a sterile salmonid zone
There are two main factors that [the DNR] uses to determine if you need a COR to stock fish in your private pond.
Pond screening — You will need a COR if your pond lacks screening or if your screened pond is located on a natural stream channel.
Ponds located on a natural stream channel — If your pond is located on a natural stream pond, you need a COR. Even for a properly screened pond, we need to evaluate the threat the possible effects of escaped fish on area native fish.
IF you are interested in purchasing any warm-water species you will need to apply for a COR permit.
You may need our health inspection results. They can be found here:

Step 1: Place the coordinates, or address of your pond into the link below:
Step 2: Using the legend from the Utah DNR Private Pond Stocking Rule you can determine what trout the state will let you stock.
Things to know:
- Trout is a salmonid
- Sterile means non-reproducing, aka triploid.
- Fertile means reproducing, aka diploid.
- COR refers to the name of a permit needed before stocking can occur.
Step 3: If you need a permit, fill out the permit and submit to [email protected]
We recommend to put warm water fish in your pond if it is consistently above 68ºF. However, we do not sell warm water fish. We recommend you contact Sunfish Fish Farms at (801) 376-3571.
We are one of few suppliers of trout in Utah. This means our delivery schedule fills up fast. We will deliver for orders above $250.00, including fish and delivery. It costs $3/mile one-way for us to deliver.
If you are able to bring your own tank, or rent ours, we can load up your tank with water and fish once you arrive. This will lower your cost significantly and ensure your pond is stocked according to your timeline.
Trout are very susceptible to stress in delivery. In order to ensure smoothest delivery for loading and unloading trout into a new environment, it is best to:
- Hold them off feed for a day.
- Fill the loading tank with water from their original source.
- Provide oxygen through transportation.
- Acclimate the fish upon arrival. For acclimation tips at unload, ask a CSTF employee upon arrival.
- If renting our tank, we will provide a net for unload.
- You may want to have a clean 5 gallon bucket ready in case your truck cannot get you all the way to your pond for unloading.
Because Step 1 is to hold fish off feed for a day, if you place an order after the first round of feeding, we will wait one business day before we will load your tank.
