Live Gamefish and Stocking Info

Keystone Hatcheries specializes with live fish stocking in Wisconsin and Illinois. Send us an email at info@keystonehatcheries.com to receive a Game Fish Price List, Availability List and Ordering Info (Only for Wisconsin and Illinois customers). We can send it to you via email, fax or regular mail. Unfortunately, because of restrictive State and Federal regulations, we do not ship fish outside of Illinois and Wisconsin at this time.

Fish Delivery and Pickup Options

  • Truck Delivery: Working together with Robinson Transport, we have a fleet of a dozen fish trucks that can deliver just about any size order.
  • Fish Pickup: We package fish in plastic bags with oxygen for you to pick up and transport to your pond. The bags are about 2 feet long by 1-1/2 foot wide and weigh roughly 25 pounds. Bags can be placed directly in vehicles if there are no sharp objects, or you can place in tubs, or for a small fee we can pack bags in cardboard boxes.

Fish Stocking Recommendations

We provide fish stocking strategies for initial stockings and for improving existing populations:

General Fish Stocking Recommendations: On this page we list basic stocking strategies for ponds in the upper Midwest.

Custom Fish Stocking Recommendations: We can make a stocking recommendation and give a quote if your pond or lake is in Wisconsin or Illinois.
