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 located in Preston, Minnesota, which is in the heart of the four state driftless area and home to one of the country’s most remarkable freshwater resources – with over 600 coldwater limestone spring-fed creeks supporting a world-class trout fishery. Several thousand miles of mineral-rich streams weave across the landscape and represent one of the highest concentrations of the rarest forms of freshwater on Earth. These streams support abundant populations of trout, which in turn, attract tens of thousands of anglers to the region each year.
The National Trout Center is a great place for fishermen, families, groups and schools to visit!
Board a coach bus and experience an adventure through our beautiful Driftless area. We’ll stop along the way to hunt for fossils, see geological wonders, visit Karst Brewery and Big Woods Orchard. Geologist Jeff Broberg will be your educational and entertaining guide.
