Troutfest Texas 2018 – Bill Marshall
Building on the tremendous success of Troutfest TX 2017, we are gearing up for an even better 2018 event Feb 16-18 at Lazy L&L Campgrounds. Sponsorship, exhibitor, and donor opportunities are going fast and we are close to sold out of exhibitor space as of this date. Banquet tickets are on sale as is merchandise and raffle tickets below. Our silent auction has gone digital and our auction items will surpass last year in quantity and quality. Trips to Alaska, Argentina, New Mexico, Idaho, Montana and many more are available plus great gear. Don’t wait as we sold out last year and will do so even earlier this year.
We are extremely pleased to have the best lineup of Featured Presenters in our history. They are Keynote Speaker, Chris Wood – CEO of Trout Unlimited, Flip Pallot who needs no introduction, Daniel Galhardo – Founder of Tenkara USA, Jen Ripple of Dun Magazine, Duane Redford of Minturn Anglers, Chris Johnson of Living Waters Fly Fishing and Noah Parker of Land of Enchantment Guides,

We were also able to lend a hand to Casting for Recovery, Project Healing Waters, Reel Recovery, TPWD and Fishing’s Future thanks to all of you.
