River Safety Cautioned

The temperatures are climbing quickly into the 'is it summer already?' zone and Oakdale is lucky to have the cool, crisp waters of the Stanislaus River winding its way through the zip code.

The rainy season has created an extra heavy fuel load as the official fire season declared by CAL FIRE - albeit delayed - approaches with an estimated late June or early July target. The date is driven by local and state burning conditions and activity.
