While TROUTFEST is an family fun event that celebrates fly-fishing, the Guadalupe River Chapter of Trout Unlimited (GRTU) is a cold water conservation group that sponsors TROUTFEST as a fundraiser to support the Guadalupe tailwater trout fishery. GRTU spends over $45,OOO annually to support the trout in the Guadalupe River and additionally uses Troutfest as a platform to fund Youth Initiatives to help create future stewards of cold water conservation and allow more kids to enjoy the outdoors.
Come join us for a fun filled weekend with great food, music, awesome partner exhibitors, fly tiers extraordinaire, casting games, kids area, Cabela’s fishing tank, movie night Saturday evening, live auction, silent auction and much more! All Saturday and Sunday daytime events are FREE!
Make certain to purchase your Friday night banquet tickets early as they will sell-out early and you do not want to miss this event. When buying your tickets, you may also purchase your T-shirts, hats, pins, Saturday night Movie, etc. As further motivation to purchase your banquet tickets early, we will have a raffle for a guided trip for 2 on the Guadalupe courtesy of Chris Johnson and Living Waters Fly Fishing. The banquet is where you can participate in the Silent and Live Auctions along with enjoying our keynote address by Kirk Deeter from Trout Unlimited. Kirk is the editor of Trout Magazine and recently joined the organization’s senior staff as its Vice President of Trout Media.
We look forward to seeing you on the river!
