Suppliers of premium quality restocking Rainbow and Brown Trout

River Gwash Trout Farm Ltd was established in 1997 specifically to supply top quality Rainbow Trout to fisheries across the Midlands and East Anglia.

We now produce up to 100,000 fish per year, from our two sites River Gwash Trout Farm and Horn Mill Trout Farm, ranging in size from 800g-7kgs. These we deliver to our customers who range from privately owned small lakes and ponds, to clubs and syndicates with waters of up to several 100 acres and rivers of several miles in length, up to water authority reservoirs of several 1000 acres.

Our relationship with our customers is not just about supplying an exceptional standard of fish and service with every delivery, but also one of working with them to achieve the best potential from their Fishery. The Company Director Lawrence Ball has over 30 years experience of working in the Trout Farming and Fishery Industry, and with Farm Manager Jamie Weston, who has been in the industry for 24 years, we can offer advice and support based on our knowledge and experience of the Aquaculture Industry.

River Gwash Trout Farm

River Gwash Trout Farm is one of the newest trout farms to be built in the country in the last 20 years. Constructed in 1998, on an old water meadow in a beautiful corner of Rutland, the trout farm was designed and built purely with the production of premium restocking fish in mind.

Horn Mill Trout Farm

Set in the heart of Rutland, Horn Mill Trout Hatchery was built in the late 1970’s to supply Rainbow and Brown Trout, fry and fingerlings, for stocking into Rutland Water and other midlands reservoirs.
