Cenla Fly Fishing Fest - Jan. 24th

The Kisatchie Fly Fishers will host the 1st-ever Cenla Fly Fishing Festival on Saturday, January 24, 201 at Kees Park Community Center in Pineville, Louisiana. Time is 9:00am to 4:00pm.

Admission is free. The event is open to the public. This celebration of fly fishing - and fishing in general - will feature presentations, casting instruction, fly tying demos by some of the Gulf Coast’s top fly tiers, rod and tackle exhibitors, raffle items, and much more.

Programs will cover a wide variety of topics of interest to all anglers, including kayak fishing for bass, sightcasting to redfish, fish biology, and more. Those interested in learning about fly fishing will want to attend the “Fly Fishing Basics” session at 9:30am, and later, attend the “Casting Basics” session at 10:30am. Both sessions will be instructed by Jeff Ferguson of Lake Charles, a Certified Casting Instructor for the International Federation of Fly Fishers.

A jambalaya lunch is available for a nominal charge, provided by the Buckeye High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) club. There will also be a raffle featuring numerous fly fishing items and accessories to help raise funds for the club’s local conservation and outreach projects.

Further information can be obtained via the Kisatchie Fly Fishers web site at, or by contacting Glen Cormier at
