The Oakdale Swim Team took to the pool for the final time this season and brought the competitive schedule to a close with a fourth place finish during the Championship Meet in Turlock on July 25.

Fishing Report 04-01-15

Every angler has his or her favorite fishing spot, I'm no different. Last weekend while fishing Lake Pardee, which is full by the way. My son and I were struggling to get any bites.
