The Chapter continues to be in good financial health. Since the start of our 2022-2023 fiscal year April 1, 2023, the Board has reviewed and approved the budget for the year. We have approved and allocated the disbursement of profits from Troutfest Texas 2022 to the following organizations:

  • The GRTU Foundation
  • Casting for Recovery
  • Project Healing Waters
  • Reel Recovery – Texas
  • Fishing’s Future
  • TPWD Intern
  • TPWD – Guadalupe Bass Restoration Initiative
  • CRRC Food Pantry
  • Canyon Lake Animal Shelter

Presentation of these checks was done at the November 2022 Chapter Meeting (see photos above).

We have submitted our annual report to Trout Unlimited National as well as submitting our 2021-2022 990 tax return to the IRS.

The Lease Access Program kicked off and as usual, there was great demand.  We anticipate the program to again perform to budget.

Preparations for Troutfest TX 2023 are well underway all invoices for Sponsors Donors and Exhibitors (SDE) have been issued and we are finalizing the last few payments. All exhibitor spaces inside the tent are sold out and a few outside locations remain. Once again, we anticipate another successful TFTX 23 next month.


Protecting, reconnecting, restoring and sustaining our cold water fisheries. It’s what we are here to do.
