Bennett Spring Fish Hatchery
In the 1920’s the state of Missouri acquired one of Missouri’s true outdoor treasures, Bennett Spring. The purchase of more than 500 acres included a spring and fish hatchery. This was the beginning of one of Missouri’s most scenic state parks and some of the best trout fishing in the state. The park has seen increased use since its inception and has become a popular vacation destination for many families, generation after generation.
The draw for many is the simple beauty, for others the fishing experience is unmatched. Today, Bennett Spring State Park has an average of 800,000 visits annually and has had as many as 180,000 anglers come to test their skills. The hatchery stocks approximately 350,000 to 420,000 rainbow trout into the Bennett Spring branch annually.
