About Us

Welcome to the seemingly endless hills of north central Pennsylvania! Nestled in the midst of the verdant landscape of Potter County, lies the Rainbow Paradise Trout Farm. This uniquely beautiful farm has been operating successfully for over 50 years and is both a trout hatchery as well as a place for recreational fishing. We have a pristine water source, which represents the “heart” of  our more than nine acres of fishing waters. Teeming with thousands of rainbow, brook, brown, tiger and golden trout, as well as other fish species, Rainbow Paradise truly offers a rewarding and memorable fishing experience for everyone.
