Tickets are rapidly disappearing for the 5th Annual Fishing Rodeo in Vienna on March 30. So if you’re interested in the trout fishing extravaganza, you may want to hook a ticket reel soon.
At the annual event in Wildwood Park (700 block of Follin Lane SE), hundreds of trout are dumped into Wolftrap Creek to swim right through banks packed to the gills with local fishers. Tickets are $3 per fisher.
Volunteers will provide instruction on fishing and stream education, as well as offering fish-cleaning demonstrations.
Half of the time slots have sold out. The remaining slots are:
- 9:30 a.m. — 12 tickets
- 10:30 a.m. — 41 tickets
- 11 a.m. — 16 tickets
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own fishing rod, bucket, plastic bag and ice A limited number of fishing rods are available to borrow. Bait will be supplied and fish marked with special tags can earn the fisher a gift card from a local merchant. All participants over 16 must possess a fishing license.
Tickets were available on sale to Vienna residents in January, but have since opened up to the public.
