And the Coyotes did have legendary Ron Cornell, the retired coach whose name is now synonymous with the school's baseball field. "We had a disappointing year, considering the talent we had on the team," Werner said ...

This past week the FLW Nation Guard Western Division Series Tournament was held on the Delta. The tournament was eventually won by Discovery Bay's Don Davis. Davis was fishing a little known area south of Mossdale that has been closed up for years by beaver dams and low water levels.

Summer has officially started for me and I have several friends that I promised to take fishing. It's been a crazy spring; I had one trip that was postponed three times due to the weather and another that has been postponed twice. Never before have I had to worry about the weather being a factor once getting past the month of April. I have a brother-in-law who lives in England, while he was over ...

Fishing after a storm sometimes can turn the bite on. I remember one year when we had three storms in a row. Parts of I-5 were actually closed due to flooding but that didn't stop us from fishing Lake Amador. When we got there, the water was all muddied up and had risen several feet. Not really sure how to approach those conditions, we tossed out our plastic worms and proceeded to have one of ...
