“Feed our Fish” program
A few months back, the Bishop Chamber launched the new “Feed our Fish” program, with the goal helping put more “lunkers in the lakes,” and according to the Chamber’s Tawni Thomson, it’s going remarkably well!
The concept is straightforward: contribute funds that will go directly toward purchase and planting of Alpers Trout. So far, the program has “reeled in” close to $1,600, enough to buy a load of lunkers that will be planted in the lakes & streams of Bishop Creek Canyon later the month, many up to 4 pounds each, and most at least in the 2-3 pound range.
Thompson said Individuals and businesses have contributed anywhere from $10 to $250 each. Many local artists donated beautiful works of art for a recent auction, proceeds from which were added to the fish fund.
“We hope to keep the program going year-round, stocking Bishop Creek Canyon during the summer and Pleasant Valley Reservoir and Lower Owens River in the winter,” Thomson added. “We’ll need help from people who believe in the importance of Eastern Sierra fishing. Any contribution is greatly appreciated.” To become a “Feed our Fish” sponsor, contact Thomson at 760.873.8405.
