Get ready for a wild day celebrating trout, the people who chase them, and the lower Deschutes River when Deschutes River Alliance presents TroutFest. Entry is free and there are fly fishing and outdoor activities for the whole family beginning at 10 a.m. with displays and products from the best fishing gear manufacturers and the finest fly shops in Central Oregon.
The day ramps up quickly with presentations and activities from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. With more than 20 different sessions, there is something for everyone from young to old, and beginner to advanced anglers.
When you get hungry or thirsty, food will be available, and the Freebridge and pFriem beer garden will quench any thirst. If you like fly casting, make sure you attend or enter, the casting competition starting at 5 p.m. It will certainly be a show of skill you don’t want to miss.
The evening ends with a concert from 7-9 p.m. at the Oasis Cabins featuring West Supply Company. Make sure you mark your calendars for Saturday, June 3, and plan to spend the day in Maupin at TroutFest.
