The National Trout Center seeks to conserve our natural and cultural heritage of trout and their coldwater environments by engaging the public through education, practice and awareness.
The National Trout Center is a great place for fishermen, families, groups and schools to visit!
The water temperatures and stream conditions are improving this week. Intense rainfall and thunderstorms covered most of the region on Wednesday but were most intensive north of Zumbrota and west of US 52 leaving most of the streams north of I-90 high and muddy for a few days.
On Thursday the larger streams south of I-90 (North and South Branch of the Root River) got muddy overnight from the runoff and these will take 3-4 days to clear up and be fishable. Smaller streams may be slightly cloudy and the headwater streams looked great.With skies clearing and temperatures rising on Friday through the weekend fishing conditions will be improving continuously until we get another big rain and runoff event.
