Mono Opening Day brings in big fish
A bevy of opening day derbies and competitions saw four 10-plus-pound fish pulled from Twin Lakes in Bridgeport. An additional $19,000 was invested in early season stocking, complementing the county’s annual stocking budget of over $100,000. The Eastern Sierra Fishing Coalition also raised $10,000 in a boat raffle last year, and that was used for more early-season trout.
“This augmented stocking effort will certainly have a positive impact for early-season fishing throughout the region,” Steve Marti, Mono County fisheries commissioner and owner of Twin Lakes Resort in Bridgeport, said. “It will increase the quality of stringers our anglers will be able take out of the water this spring – and that kind of news travels fast.”
Andrew Jones, proprietor of the Silver Lake Resort in June Lake reported that “the Opening Weekend was spectacular. In fact, we had some of the best fishing at an opener that I have seen in years, and the weather was exceptional, but to be honest, I think that the buzz was the extra fish that went into the lake due to the stocking. Everyone seemed excited and saw direct results.”
