Troutfest 2009 was one of the largest fly fishing events in the Eastern United States. Attendance counts were estimated to be 4,500 people. Anglers came to Townsend from as far away as Florida, South Mississippi, Alaska, Colorado and other far away places. Headliners were Lefty Kreh, Bob Clouser and Joe Humphreys. The banquet and auction drew a large crowd and proceeds more than doubled any previous Troutfest. Over 100 volunteers worked to make this happen. The final tally was a profit of $36,184.
