The California High School Rodeo Association will be holding its finals at the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds in Bishop for the next four years with a possible two-year extension on top of that. The rodeo attracts more than 700 parents and participants that stay and spend in Bishop.
The CHSRA contracts for holding the finals has always been competitive, said Jim Tatum, fairgrounds general manager, but he said Bishop made the CHRSA an offer it couldnâ€™t refuse. He added that he has only had phone confirmation and details are still being hammered out.
The really big fish that have been caught along Bishop Creek â€“ those lunker Alpers trout â€“ could soon be a thing of the past.

Founder Ron Scira said this week that heâ€™ll make an announcement at the Annual Fishing Opener Press reception, held the Friday before Fishmas, whether the non-profit organization will dissolve or continue.
