Branch River Trout Hatchery has its own brood stock of brook, brown, and rainbow trout. They have expanded their trout offerings to include the arctic char, which is closely related to the lake trout, and the tiger trout, a cross between a brook and a brown trout.
Branch River Trout Hatchery produces about 50,000 trout fry yearly, with the bulk of the fish going to pond stocking. The fish are raised in their new indoor facility until they reach 2-3 inches in size. They are then transferred to outdoor raceways, where they are grown to 10-14 inches.
Branch River Trout Hatchery's artesian well water is a constant 52 degrees year-round, with a constant flow of about 30 gal./min. Their whole system is a closed loop process, thereby eliminating any threat of outside pollution from a river, or a non-point source.
