INTERNATIONAL TROUT CONGRESS

BOZEMAN – Trout lovers from around the world who are passionate about trout and cold water will convene in Bozeman on October 2-6 for the first ever International Trout Congress. The Congress will follow Trout Unlimited’s annual meeting, also held in Bozeman.

The congress is a seminal event celebrating trout and the passion they inspire around the world. Arguably no other freshwater species has had more impact on art and literature, conservation science, the global economy and the human condition.

This first-of- its-kind event will take place in the shadow of Yellowstone National Park and in proximity to some of the most beloved trout streams in the world. A diverse audience of conservationists, scientists, educators, anglers, writers, artists and members of the public is expected to attend the event.

Workshop topics include conservation projects around the world, bringing trout education into classrooms, casting with Tenkara fly rods and preparing for the impacts of climate change.

The Trout and Salmonid collection at Montana State University will host a social on Monday, Oct. 3 and a number of field trips to locations including Ruby River and Cherry Creek are scheduled. Prior to and during the event, the Emerson Arts Center will feature a showing of regional trout art that will be open to the public.

A silent auction featuring a custom bamboo fly rod crafted by Sweetgrass Rods and an inclusive 2-night stay at Healing Waters Lodge in Twin Bridges will benefit the Trout Congress, Ruby Habitat Foundation and Casting for Recovery.
