Fishing Report

Like every New Year, for the past 16 years, I was in Arizona visiting the in-laws. Unlike the past 16 years it was colder than it has ever been over there. Thinking that I'd be smart and bring only one sweater, I definitely should have checked the weather report before leaving. The fishing out there is so much more different than on the Delta. Because of the intense heat, most of their fishing is done through the night. Locals primarily fish the Colorado River which is like our Delta in many ways. Unlike the Delta, the Colorado River doesn ...

Mayday McDonald Returns To UFC Octagon

After a two year absence from the world of Mixed Martial Arts, Modesto native Michael "Mayday" McDonald returns to combat in the octagon. The 24-year-old, who trains out of Oakdale, last fought in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on Dec. 14, 2013 against "The California Kid" Urijah Faber.

Fishing Report

The other day while I was reading through some online fishing forums, I came across a picture of a new bass boat that was rigged with a 400 horsepower outboard motor. That's easily a 90 plus mph boat! Most bass boats rigged with an engine over 200 horsepower can run in the 70's. I can't imagine what a boat with 400 horsepower can run. If you've ever seen a bass boat running at top speed, there's very little of the boat actually in the water. The good news is that most tournament organizations put limitations ...

2015 Memorable For Oakdale Sports

With 2015 in the books, let's take a few moments to reflect on the sporting events and stories from the first half of the year that was. From the 64th annual PRCA Oakdale Rodeo, to hard hitting MMA action, to the loss of an Oakdale football legend, to Oakdale Mustangs achievements, the first half of 2015 was an exciting time for our sports community.

Fishing Report

Someday I hope to tell stories of how bad the water hyacinth used to be on the Delta. As much as I love the protection and security that it provides our fish, I'm beginning to despise it as it's made it nearly impossible to launch and navigate certain areas on the Delta. Several years ago there was an effort to control the water hyacinth by spraying it but it's since made a resurgence. In my lifetime, I've never seen the water hyacinth as bad as it's been this year and am really starting to wonder ...
