    Did anyone make the Blake Jones Derby in Bishop this weekend (March 17th)? We had to cancel because of the weather and I haven't seen any results/ pictures posted online..??

    We were there. Weather was not too bad actually, 60's on Friday clear skies over the Valley most of the day. Saturday it rained a bit up at the reservoir and near the weigh-in, but only for an hour or two. Little cooler Saturday, but the sun came out for the winners announcements.

    I think big fish was about 13lbs, can't remember the exact weight for sure.

    Not many people were there compared to other years, guessing the forecasts scared most people off.

    I didn't see it. I think it was probably a rainbow, DFG was stocking some pretty good size fish all week and through Saturday. We saw quite a few larger ones being caught from Owens and the reservoir.

    Blind bogey was set at 14 ounces, if I am remembering correctly.
