Welcome to Buck Creek - where there is always a rainbow!

Buck Creek Trout Farm is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Marion, NC.
Two pristine creeks surrounded by U.S. Forest Service Land come together to form an ideal home for both native and farm-raised trout.

Buck Creek is a small, family-owned business whose top priority is customer service.

Buck Creek Trout Farm is open to the public April through October. All trout on the farm are egg-hatched and hand-fed to market size. Picnic facilities are available. 

For your convenience, Buck Creek Trout Farm is located only 3.5 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 20 miles from beautiful Mount Mitchell State Park, and just 6 miles to Mt. Mitchell Golf course. Also within a short driving distance are Crabtree Meadows, Little Switzerland, Linville Falls and Linville Caverns.

Buck Creek Trout Farm is the best kept secret in Western North Carolina!

Applewood Smoked Trout

Buck Creek Trout Farm prepares delicious trout smoked with applewood chips. Fresh, choice trout are soaked in a delicate brine for 12 hours and meticulously smoked for a fresh tasty delicacy that can be enjoyed as an appetizer or an entree. Two sizes are available. You've got to try these babies...they even converted a NON-FISH EATER! Call for pricing and ordering. 

What others say about Smoked Trout from Buck Creek:

"I don't do fish, but after some strong coaxing from my hosts, I decided I would try one bite of the apple smoked trout just to be polite. I definitely went back for more! It was delicious!"
