The Opening Weekend Fishmas Festival is taking place April 27th (Fishmas Eve) and April 28th, at The Village at Mammoth. During the festival, there will be raffle prizes awarded throughout the two days. The event is presented by the new Eastern Sierra Fishing Coaltion (ESFC) and the proceeds from the raffle, retail and beer sales will go towards fishing stocking in Mono County.
FRIDAY - RONNIE KOVACH FISHING TIPS
The festival will last from 4pm to 8pm. There will be live music and beer from Mammoth Brewing Company. The highlight is that there will be fishing tips from the host of Fox's Fishing Ventures, Ronnie Kovach. He will give fishing tips based on the current conditions in the area to assist fishermen in having the best fishing experience possible.
SATURDAY - MANZANAR FISHING CLUB
The festival will run from 2pm to 8pm. In addition to live music, food and kids activities, The Village is sponsoring a special showing of the Manzanar Fishing Club. It will be shown at 7pm in the Emerald Room in the Grand Sierra Lodge. This is a film about the internees held at Manzanar who snuck out to go fishing....for several days at a time. The focus of this documentary is on these internees fishing adventures and quests to catch the Golden Trout. The room will hold 80 people. I invite everyone to attend this great film.
As mentioned, the event is presented by the new Eastern Sierra Fishing Coaltion and the proceeds from the raffle, retail and beer sales will go towards fishing stocking throughout Mono County. Raffle donations will be mentioned throughout the event. The goal of the ESFC is to keep the audience engaged by frequently awarding prizes throughout the festival. If you have lodging, dining or retail items to donate please drop off at Mammoth Lakes Tourism.
