Banquet tickets are SOLD OUT! Movie Night Tickets are still available. All Saturday and Sunday Exposition Events are Free to ALL!!

As always is the case with undertakings like this, we are in need of volunteers to make Troutfest a success as there is a lot of work to be done to get ready for and execute the weekend. Please contact Brad Wilkins at bwilkins@grtu.org if you would like to be involved in making the event a huge success. There is plenty to do at many different levels of involvement, so drop us an email if you are interested. Thanks in advance.

This event is the main source of our support for our Youth Programs/Initiatives to help develop the next generation of conservation leaders. Under the leadership of GRTU Board Member Dakus Geeslin, GRTU has provided an extremely strong and growing Youth Program in the past and our goal is to enhance the programs reach with additional funding.

The success of Troutfest is heavily influenced by our Live and Silent auction items and the income derived from them. Please let us know if you personally have items to donate or if you are willing to contact lodges, guides, businesses, vendors, friends, etc. for items for our auctions. We are a Chapter of over 5,000 members and if we all chip in on this effort we can pull off an amazing and record setting event.
