Tehachapi continued its dominance of the Little League All-Star tournaments with back-to-back wins over the Bishop Juniors.
Bishop’s All-Stars lost by a slim 5-7 margin Friday afternoon.
Tehachapi took an early lead in Saturday morning’s game and never gave it up, taking the tournament with a 1-15 win. Bishop’s bats were active, but couldn’t string them together for enough runs to challenge Tehachapi.

Fishing Report

June 24, 2011

South Fork Bishop Creek
Reduced flows have really improved the water conditions on the creek. The fishing has remained excellent along most of stretches of the creek with some solid fish in the 2 - to 3-pound range.
Most folks are really doing well in the slower moving pools and deep pockets. More solid 2-pound plus rainbows along with plenty of pan sized stockers are filling stringers. Thomas Bouyants, worms, mini-jigs, Panther Martins and Thomas Bouyants are producing best.
