Fall is a favorite time of year for Eastern Sierra anglers and thanks to a new tagged fish contest organized by the Bishop Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau, this year is going to be better than ever!
The Bishop Chamber has arranged for 1200# of beautiful rainbows to be delivered by Desert Springs Trout Farm in Oregon. Several of the fish have been tagged for the contest and let loose in Sabrina, South Lake, Intake II, Bishop Creek and Pleasant Valley Reservoir.
According to Tawni Thomson of the Bishop Chamber, the contest is straight forward and free to enter. “If you’re lucky enough to catch a fish with a tag that says “WINNER. BISHOP CHAMBER OF COMMERCE” between October 1st and November 15th, just remove the tag and bring it to the Chamber of Commerce to collect $100.”
The new fall Bishop area tagged fish contest is sponsored in part by Inyo County’s CPSP grant program.
