About Us:

Supplied with artesian spring water from a 19th century limestone quarry, Aqua-life Inc.'s Limestone Springs Trout Hatchery and Fishing Preserve near Myerstown, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, offers recreational rainbow trout fishing, as well as trout stocking and food service trout products year round. What was once a portion of the historic Union Canal is now a series of pools teaming with ready to catch and eat trout. Experts and novice fisherman alike can enjoy a day's fishing, with NO Pa. Fishing License required! We ask you to keep all trout caught, trout are priced by the pound. Complimentary ice is available to chill your catch immediately, preserving the best in freshness and taste. Picnic tables, benches, a pavilion and peace and quiet are available for your packed picnic. Snacks, bait, rods, essential tackle, ice, and trout cleaning are also offered at our new check-in pavilion.

With up to 12,000 gallons/minute of natural limestone spring water flowing continuously through the farm, Limestone Springs has demonstrated annual production as high as 400,000 pounds per year. While spring flows vary, which influences the amount of trout we can hold, the facility can maintain a consistent output of over 250,000 pounds annually.
Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee that hit our area in September 2011, Limestone Springs has introduced a whole new production plan. There are no longer the capabilities to hatch eggs at the farm. Instead shipments of CERTIFIED DISEASE FREE rainbow trout fingerlings are delivered 4 times each year. Each shipment of fingerlings consists of 100,000 fish which are put directly into grow out raceways located in the lower complex. Fingerlings are around 2-3” and are 3 months old when they arrive at our farm. From fingerling to a 14” trout takes on average 16 months of growth and care. The unique system of water use in the raceway style farm allows year-round harvest, ideally suited to supply our food service customers with the freshest trout possible at any time.
