This year was the 54th annual Blake Jones Trout Derby in Bishop, CA.
The annual event is traditionally held to kick off the fishing season in the Owens Valley but after the crazy winter we had, it was postponed to September. The entries were about half of previous years due to the date change but we were still excited to help.
High Country Lumber’s ESOP Committee gathered a crew of HCL representatives to volunteer at this years Blake Jones event. We had a blast helping direct fishermen & women, weigh-in their catches and helping anywhere else that was needed to make the event run smoothly.
“We had so much fun and we’re already looking forward to next year. We hope everyone will mark their calendars now for March 23rd, 2024!” states Bishop Chamber of Commerce Event Coordinator April Leeson.
