Swim Season Ends

Oakdale's Caden Nord could not cap off his magical 2017 season with a state finals appearance in Clovis on May 19 and 20. The junior qualified for state consideration one week prior at the CIF SAC-Joaquin Section Finals in the 50 and 100 yard freestyle but failed to make it to the final cut of the State Meet at Clovis West High School. This season, though, Nord set the bar for Oakdale men's swimmers as he broke the school record in the 100 yard freestyle and also broke his own 2016 school record in the 50 yard freestyle.

Fishing Report

The weather finally seems like it's going to be more like the month of May that I'm used to. I know better to get too excited though, since everyone else is most likely going to be just as excited as I am to be able to get out on the water. My main concern this time of year going forward while out on the water is other operators. There are still some boaters that believe they cannot be stopped for drinking and driving while boating. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may in fact revoke or suspend your ...

Fishing Report

It's funny how us fathers end up repeating the same words of advice that our fathers repeated to us as children. While fishing with my dad, he used to always tell me "you can't catch anything if your baits not in the water." I've since gone on to repeat that saying to just about every angler I fish with that questions whether the fish are biting or not. I've also been surprised at how many times I caught a fish while I tossed my line out while I ate lunch, changed clothing, stopped to put some ...
