Bill proposes money for National Trout Center HQ

ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 47/AP) -- Trout enthusiasts received special attention Thursday at the state Capitol.

Minnesota lawmakers are being asked to float $4.5 million in state bonds to establish a permanent home for the non-profit National Trout Center in Preston.

The proposal asks for money to design, construct and equip the hands-on learning center devoted to the popular game fish.

Republican Rep. Greg Davids, the sponsor, says the Preston area is known nationally for its pristine trout streams and draws visitors from near and far.

The trout center is currently located in a temporary space.

Beginning in April, the National Trout Center will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday-Saturday.
