Troutfest is an event put on by the Little River Chapter of Trout Unlimited. It is held here in Townsend at the Visitors Center in May. On Friday night there is a fundraising banquet. The Chapter clears over $10,000 and most of the money goes to the Fisheries Department at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for brook trout restoration. At Troutfest there will be artists, fly tyers, a casting competition, stuff for kids to do and food vendors. TWRA and the National Park Service have fisheries people on hand to answer your questions. We have a place for the Troutfest organizers to talk about the event and I guess they will when they get time. Here's a link that might shed some light.
