Cove River Ranch

Raising Trophy Rainbow Trout Since 1910

Passion is what drives us

Cove River Ranch has a single focus: growing trout. That is our passion, and it’s what we do best. We pride ourselves on growing the most beautiful, natural, healthy trout you can find.  

Quality You Can Trust

As growing trout is our passion, Cove River Ranch maintains and oversees its own hatchery, raceway, grow out lakes and river to ensure the highest quality trout available. The ranch is proudly producing over 100,000 pounds of trout annually with room to grow.

Cold Water Fish

Rainbow Trout thrive in cold water, another reason why our natural springs make our product a cut above the rest. The waters naturally maintain 52 degrees fahrenheit year-round lending to our unfailing history of hearty, natural fish.

Quality Over Quantity

We have the capacity to maintain more than double the fish currently being raised but to do so would mean sacrifice elsewhere. At Cove River Ranch we value our product, customers, and employees more than our bottom line.

Why Us?

The Purest Product

Our trout are all sterile females in accordance with Utah state laws. We buy our certified, disease-free eggs from Trout Lodge in Washington State, the largest producer of eyed trout eggs in the world. We hatch 1.2 million eggs annually and never add chemicals to our waters.

Untouched Spring Water

Our hatchery sits at the head of 6 pristine clear water springs that provide constant 52 degree water year around. With no upstream pollution or pesticides, these clear springs have been growing beautiful trout since 1910.

Privately Owned & Operated

Cove River Ranch is the largest privately owned and operated hatchery in Utah. We grow and deliver our live trophy trout to private lake and pond owners, private fishing clubs, as well as state agencies.
