Don't miss out on the third annual Flyfest on March 10. The festival on the Clear Fork of the Trinity River offers activities for the whole family.

As a part of an annual trout stocking, Tarrant Regional Water District is partnering with Fort Worth’s urban angling community to present the third annual TRWD Flyfest on March 10. The festival will be a family-friendly day of fly fishing, food, wine and craft beer in and along the rippling waters of the Clear Fork of the Trinity River.

Whether you are an experienced angler or have never touched a fly rod, this fun day will have something for the whole family. To create an optimal angling experience, the Tarrant Regional Water District will release 1,200 pounds of rainbow trout and nearly 3,000 Texas native fish in the festival location.

The festival will run from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. near the intersection of Bryant Irvin Road and River Park Drive. Parking is at the River Park Trailhead, 3100 Bryant Irvin Blvd. Festival admission is free.

Fly tying lessons will be available throughout the day and will cover an array of types of flies, from beginner-friendly patterns to advanced. Fly fishing experts will host numerous demonstrations, including beginning casting, a women’s casting class and how to cast big flies.
