The Blake Jones derby is a blind bogey format with categories for adults and kids of all ages. In addition to the blind bogey awards, there will be prizes for early bird registrations, farthest travel, biggest fish, even prizes for those who don't catch any fish or choose to catch & release.
Registration, weigh-in, and awards ceremony will be at the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds in downtown Bishop. Fishing locations include Pleasant Valley Reservoir and the Owens River. California Department of Fish and Wildlife plants Rainbow Trout year-round in these locations and the Bishop Chamber will arrange for supplemental stocking of fish purchased from Wright’s Rainbows prior to the derby. “We want to make sure there are plenty of fish for everyone,” explains April Leeson, Event Coordinator at the Bishop Chamber of Commerce.
"The derby is a real family-friendly fishing event. In addition to the fishing contest, we’ll have information booths, educational displays, kids' casting games, music, activities, food & beverage vendors and more," Leeson added.
Registration for the derby is now open. Sign up online at or drop by the Bishop Chamber of Commerce, 690 North Main Street.
The Blake Jones Trout Derby is co-sponsored by Inyo County and the City of Bishop, plus many other generous prize sponsors. For more information, contact the Bishop Chamber at (760)873-8405.
