New Troutlaw Roundup
The Eastern Sierra Fishing Coalition announces the launch of its new “Troutlaw Roundup” derby, designed to promote local businesses and stock Eastern Sierra lakes with Alpers trout weighing at least 5 pounds or greater.
The Eastern Sierra Fishing Coalition is selling 100 tagged Alpers Trout as part of next year’s “Troutlaw Roundup” derby being promoted in magazines, newspapers, radio, posters and news outlets throughout California. Businesses have the opportunity to purchase their own Alpers Trout, to be stocked in local waters for $200, along with a donated prize to be part of the derby. Each fish will be tagged with a prize redeemable through the Eastern Sierra Fishing Coalition’s website.
Individuals interested in purchasing a fish to promote their business can do so by contacting Mammoth Lakes Tourism’s Whitney Lennon or Alicia Vennos with Mono County Tourism. Fish available on a first-come, first-served bases until the 100 fish are sold. Dates for next year’s derby are still being finalized. Proceeds from events help stocking local waters.

Burnham mental health talk
Jordan Burnham will present a very special talk for the public on Mental Health this coming Wednesday, Sept. 19, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Mammoth Lakes Library’s Elie Randol Room.
Burnham will share experiences and insight on his struggle with depression, including his attempt to take his own life, and how his survival propelled him to begin to deal with his depression and learn healthier coping mechanisms.
Today, Jordan’s physical body is still recovering, but he has found emotional wellness through counseling, and a strong support system. In 2011, an ESPN special edition of its E:60 series on his experiences, “The Jordan Burnham Story,” was nominated for an Emmy Award.
Mono County Office of Education and the Mammoth Library are proud sponsors of Jordan Burnham for this community event. Burnham will also speak to Middle and High School students in Inyo and Mono counties.
Information or questions: call the Mono County Office of Education at 760.934.0031 and speak with Ana Danielson or Didi Tergesen.Share Email This Post
