Van Cleave Getting Results From Swimmers

Over the past four years the swimming program has been taken to new heights in Oakdale and that is a direct result of the time and effort given by Oakdale High head swimming coach Russ Van Cleave and his coaching staff.
Van Cleave has helped guide a relatively unknown Oakdale swimming community into the uncharted waters of their most recent success.
The Oakdale swim team has built a solid reputation amongst the other prevalent swimming communities and now has asserted themselves as one of the stronger programs in a powerful Sac-Joaquin Section.
The success has come largely in part due ...

Fishing Report

Watch out for the duck hunters, duck hunting season has begun. What's different than years past is that there are very few places locally to safely launch a boat anymore, making the Delta the only option for a lot of boaters and duck hunters. This of course has caused an increase in boat traffic and if you were to ask a duck hunter what they hate the most about hunting the Delta, they would surely say the boat traffic. During my last outing as I was navigating through a foggy stretch of water, I heard four gun shots. I ...

Fishing Report

I just recently celebrated a birthday; I won't tell you which one. I've heard it said a thousand times, "how fast time has passed." Like most of us celebrating a birthday it's hard not looking back. I was reminded of my past recently while I was searching high and low for my birth certificate. I came across an old picture of myself taken while I was in the military. For some reason my roommate took a picture of me while I was reading a Bassmaster Magazine. At that time, I would have never imagined that someday I ...

Fishing Report

Every once in a while even I get confused as to where I should go fishing. I've been reading about the salmon that are being caught in the North Delta as well as the striped bass that are being caught pretty much everywhere in the Delta. Like a lot of anglers, I wanted to catch my first salmon of the year but also wanted to make sure that I caught something. So, off to Fisherman's Warehouse I went. It's been a while since I've been there; it hasn't changed much over the years. If you ...

Fishing Report

With the water levels being so low my choices for fishing this weekend have really been limited. Fortunately the bite in the Delta is finally starting to pick up and soon the water will be too cold for everyone to swim in except for the fish. This year is different than the last 20 in that I'll be targeting stripers, salmon, and possibly a sturgeon before the end of the winter. I've got an idea of what I want to do and how I'm going to do it but I've yet to try it out on ...

Fishing Report

Thursday morning on my way to work I was surprised to see rain clouds in the distance and a little mist in the air. Working with children, rainy days can be quite the challenge as they all want to play in the rain. Fish on the other hand aren't going to get anymore wet, but they do become more active when it rains. The rain has several effects on them. As the water rises, it not only provides them more area, but it washes bugs and debris into the water. The smaller fish are attracted to the food being ...

Fishing Report

Every year, there are new fishing products that come out that quickly become the hot item. Back in the mid to late 80's, it was the Salt and Pepper Grub. They couldn't make them fast enough. Now, I don't know anyone that uses them. I've always wondered how something that was so effective in years past can lose its effectiveness. Most anglers will tell you that the fish have become conditioned to that particular bait and can no longer be fooled by that bait. My response to that argument is that there are very few if ...

Fishing Report

One of the most difficult things I've had to deal with since purchasing a new boat has been rigging the boat. In the past, I've purchased used boats that were already rigged up the way I wanted. All I had to do was replace those items that broke as time went on. I've had my current boat for about five months and don't believe I'll have it fully rigged for another year or two. There are just too many options and some of those options are pretty expensive. New boats, unlike cars, come pretty standard ...

Fishing Report

Several friends of mine have recently damaged their boats while out boating in our local lakes. The water levels are falling so fast that there's no way that lake management can keep up with marking all the hazardous areas. Personally, I've chosen to stay away from certain lakes. Launching conditions are the worst they've been in a long time and with the water being so low, there's just not enough water to get away from the crowds of boats. My advice to any of you planning on going out before the summer is over is to ...
