Join us for a chance to be a part of the fishing community, for beginners to living fly fishing legends. A hands-on, minds-on day celebrating the mighty trout – try, test, taste, experience, explore, and then join us for a fishing feast of old, around the grand table, swapping tales.

We’ll have some of the Catskills greatest fly fishermen sharing the secrets of casting, fly-tying, reading streams, where to hike in to legendary waters and secret fishing spots, cooking trout, the right gear, and more, culminated with a superb trout feast in the evening. (And trout stories. Of course. There must be fish stories.)

If you’ve always wanted to explore trout fishing but didn’t know where to start, here’s your chance! And if you love all things trout and want to get a jump on newest cool gear, come on by.

This is the beginning of annual tradition. Our first Trout Tales was last spring, an extraordinary collection of some the great fishermen in the area, swapping stories about these glorious streams and beautiful fish, memories woven over a lifetime of finding the poetry of the trout. This year is bigger and better, the weekend before the season opens.

This event is a celebration of fly-fishing and of Trout Unlimited, a hugely important conservation and education nonprofit organization. The Ashokan-Pepacton Chapter of Trout Unlimited and its leadership is why we still have fish in the streams in the Catskill mountains. You can learn more about what they've been up to from any number of the folks who will be at Trout Tales, and can become a part of strengthening trout fishing in the Catskills by becoming a member!
