The TRWD Flyfest Will Be the Flyest Addition to Your Weekend Plans

The Tarrant Regional Water District is partnering with Fort Worth’s urban angling community again to present TRWD Flyfest. The family-friendly festival will feature fly-fishing, food, wine, craft beer, and numerous family-friendly attractions. To create an optimal angling experience, TRWD will release 1,800 pounds of rainbow trout in addition to the nearly 3,000 Texas native fish stocked annually.

The day will feature presentations from nationally known experts that will cover a wide range of topics, including fly fishing basics, fly fishing destinations, fishing on the Trinity, and more. Fly tying lessons will also be available throughout the day and will cover a wide array of types of flies from beginner-friendly patterns to more advanced techniques. Experts will host numerous hands-on demonstrations, including beginner casting, a women’s casting class, and Spey casting.

The festival’s main event will once again be the ORVIS Big Trout Contest where anglers compete to catch the biggest trout or the most fish in the time allotted. Open fishing for fly and bait fishing will also be welcomed in designated areas.

Additionally, TRWD Flyfest will feature live music from local Deric Merrill and a host of children’s activities, including a mini stocked tank for fishing. FWISD culinary students from Polytechnic High School and North Side High School will be on hand highlighting their talents with cooking demonstrations. Local wineries will be on-site again this year with wine tastings and wine by the glass. There will also be food, craft beer, and shopping vendors. TRWD Flyfest will be held at Trinity River this Saturday, March 14th. Admission is free. For additional information, please visit
