is a very precious resource. Trout ponds, lakes and streams bring tremendous recreational and emotion
value to property. Spring Creek excels in creating the most natural trout lakes, ponds and streams. From
intricate small landscape or garden trout ponds up to one-hundred acre trophy fly fishing lakes and
streams, our innovative trout habitat designs and practical approach add unique value to your land.
Our Aquatic Biologists and affiliates can plan, design, and build just the lake or pond you desire. Our services run a range from short phone and email consultations for specific issues, site inspections, or a complete trout habitat design. we also offer a complete design - build approach to ensure every detail is perfect.
Quality pond and lake design produces all of the qualities essential to the perfect trout lake: larger fish, less sediment, optimum temperature, reduced submerged vegetation, clear water, greatly reduced maintenance and a much more natural and beautiful body of water. A sizeable industry is based on maintaining lakes and ponds. The vast majority of the clientele is derived from lakes with less than ideal design and construction, if the ponds and lakes were ever designed at all. Investing in quality planning and trout habitat design will save considerably while greatly extending the life of the trout lake or stream. We also restore and convert existing lakes and ponds to achieve the same qualities of a newly built trout pond, lake or stream.
We have worked with many "do it yourself" scenarios to build trophy trout environments. One thing we hear over and over is "I wish I would have met you the first time I constructed this lake. You would have saved me so much." They often go on to say "I read all the books." Unless you own a small scientific library, the books barely scratch the surface of the knowledge neccessary to build a trout habitat for any particular site.
Trout are very demanding of quality aquatic habitat. Lakes and ponds designed for trout are easily the most difficult yet rewarding fish habitats to design and build. Each individual site has a set of unique circumstances that must be addressed in order to achieve successful trout habitat. Combining the desire for clear water and trophy size trout makes the pond design that much more challenging. When the trout lake design and construction come together with careful guidance, the results are magical.
Sometimes nature creates a perfect trout lake or trout stream. When we find them, we study them very closely. After we identify what is missing in your location, we adjust for the deficiency and the result is a completely naturally functioning trout environment. We improve the biology, geology, chemistry, geography, and physics of aquatic environments. Getting the sun to shine more often is the only element beyond our control.
EXPERIENCE AND CREATIVITY. With over twenty-five years of biological experience and creative problem solving across North America, along with the practical construction experience, we provide you with the scientific and practical solutions to build a trout pond correctly the first time. Because of our uniquely effective trout habitat designs, we build trout ponds, streams and lakes all across North America, including some very surprising southern locations. Our projects have ranged from trout in small landscape ponds, up to large lakes and analyses of entire watersheds. We have a great deal of experience pushing the limits of temperature tolerance of trout. We have developed a range of creative methods to accomplish what so many will claim is not possible. If you doubt trout can survive your local environment, there is a good chance we can still build a viable trout habitat. From years of experience, we know what is required. If we do not believe it can be done, we will happily give you a conservative assessment. Successful trout habitat is too important to our business. We cannot afford failure.
Knowledge of habitat by itself is not sufficient for the best trout stream, lake and pond designs. We work with a wide range of trout and salmon, which are threatened and endangered species. Trout pond design and genetic stocks of trout are matched together in order to ensure your project's success.
WHAT HAVE WE DONE LATELY? We recently completed a small trout pond project in the searing heat of central California. While we ensure success by layering additional design features, we did not have to go to the nth degree to achieve success on this project. Again we learned how to push the boundaries of possibility even further via this experience.
YOUR VISION IS OUR VISION.
We have an outline for your use to plan and carry out your project with as much or little help as you require from us. Spend some time looking through our aquatic PLANNING GUIDE to assist you in developing the best aquatic habitat possible. Be sure to visit our TECHNICAL FAQs page for answers to your important questions.
Looking for pond, lake or waterfront property? Take a look at our new PROPERTY LISTING PAGE to locate or sell existing prime property for aquatic habitats.
If you are in the real estate market with particular interests in waterfront properties, spend some time reading the WATERFRONT and LAKE PROPERTY BUYERS GUIDE to evaluate river and lake front properties.
IN THE NEWS: Our Senior Fishery Biologist was the Technical Advisor for an important new trophy trout fishing book titled: Big Trout. This book will not only change the way you think of chasing trophy trout.
