As we turn the corner and move into 2021, we’re all looking forward to returning to some level of normalcy. That should include marking your calendar now for the June 2021 Trout Tournament sponsored by BFEF (Bridgeport Fish Enhancement Foundation)! This is an important event for the Bridgeport community, and we all appreciate your support. This year’s tourney, sponsored as always by the Fishin’ Mission Foundation Inc., will be held on Saturday, June 26th.
This is a true family fun event: We have Men’s, Women’s and Junior (15 years old and younger) competition divisions. Adult entry fee is $75, and Juniors $40. Your entry fee entitles you to a great old-fashioned community dinner, complete with raffles, prizes, and free giveaways, plus — of course — a fantastic weekend fishing the Eastern Sierra! Non-participants who wish to join us for dinner only are $40.
The awards program will include a $500 Educational Award, given to one Junior participant. The $750 Special Cash Award will go to one BFEF TTT Club participant, and the $500 Adult Angler Award will go to someone from the Men’s and Women’s categories.
Space is limited to 200 dinners, so register early. If you have any questions, please call Ken at 714-227-0765 or email him. You can also call Ray at 760-616-4214. The BFEF’s mission is to enhance Bridgeport area trout fisheries, get kids hooked on fishing, conservation of Bridgeport area waterways, and support outdoor and local programs through nonprofit means. It is a 501c(3) organization. This event is funded, in part, by Mono County, 800-845-7922.
