As the new year arrives, the 2014 winter trout fishing season officially opens. In celebration, the National Trout Center will host an open house on Saturday, Jan. 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The public is welcome to stop by the trout center for some hot and cold beverages, snacks, conversation, fly tying and a warm place to meet other winter fishers and share one's favorite angling story.

The National Trout Center is located at 120 Saint Anthony St. in Preston.
