The Leo Club was chartered a few months ago and was celebrated at a recent Lions Club meeting. Leo members range in age from 12 to 17 and work independently of the Lions Club doing their own community service projects.

Fishing Report

My first tournament of 2018 is in the books. Fishing on Lake Oroville was tougher than I can remember. I was fortunate to be able pre-fish a day before the lake went off limits.
