Fishing Report

It looks like we're finally getting some much needed rain. Like a lot of you, I'm hoping that this is the beginning of the end of our current drought. I'm asked all the time if the fishing is better when it's raining. My usual response is that the fish aren't going to get any wetter. Actually, there are a lot of reasons to believe that the fishing gets better when it's raining. Not only does the rain disguise the noise which causes the fish to be a little less leery, it washes insects and ...

Winter Sports Means Wrestling In Oakdale

Oakdale High School athletes excel at many sports. From football, which has made it to the CIF Section Championship game in back-to-back years, to the baseball program that won seven straight Valley Oak League titles in recent years, and the varsity girls track and field team, who literally ran away from the competition over the past decade. All very impressive, but the OHS varsity wrestling team has carved its own place in school history, putting a headlock on the competition, not only in the Valley Oak League, but on the entire Sac-Joaquin Section.
