Here’s How You Can Participate in TroutFest 2019

Next to being on the water, our TroutFest Silent Auction is our most popular event of the year. This year we have some fantastic single day, multi-day and Montana destination fishing trips in out Silent Auction as well as some fantastic fishing gear and non-angling activities up for bid.

The Silent Auction starts on Thursday February 21st online and ends at 7:30PM MST on Saturday February 23rd, so visit today to place your bid.

Live Auction:

You do not have to attend TroutFest in person to bid on incredible items like a Clackacraft drift boat custom built to your specifications, a Kenai Peninsula, Alaska fishing trip Wisconsin Muskie on-the-fly trip, a Bow River Fishing trip, original fishing artwork and more! You can bid on live auction items through our sealed reserved bid process the evening of the banquet on a first come first served basis.

If you are not able to attend TroutFest in person, contact MGTU at 406-219-7691 or to arrange your remote Live Auction bids.

More items are added to both the silent and live auctions every day up until the banquet so check back frequently at to make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to win some great items

Make A Donation:

Making a tax-deductible donation of any amount is a great way for you to directly help conserve, protect and restore Southwestern Montana’s coldwater fisheries.

We don't receive one penny of government support and everyone at MGTU is a volunteer. That means we rely on the generosity, dedication and commitment of anglers like you to make a lasting impact for trout and clean, cold, fishable water - resources we all value.

100% of your gift will go towards our mission and you can make a donation through our secure server at

Thank you for supporting TroutFest 2019. Whether you bid on the Silent or Live auctions, attend the Banquet on February, 23rd or send a tax-deductible donation, you will have a significant and lasting impact in protecting and passing along to future generations the pristine waters and wild trout of Southwestern Montana.
