Would you like to not have to worry about paying every time you visit a San Joaquin County park? Or do you have someone that’s hard to buy for? Consider an annual pass this holiday season. Our pass is just $100 for one vehicle (or $150 for a vehicle and boat) and is good for an entire year from the date of purchase. Download an application off our website (http://www.sjparks.com/about-us/annual-pass.aspx) or drop by our Park office weekdays (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
Thank you to everyone who turned out for the 33rd Annual Trout Bout last Saturday. Over 600 anglers came out to try their hand at fishing (there were even some trophy-size Trout caught!). Special thanks to the Delta Fly Fishers and the California Department of Fish and Game for assisting during the event. With 2,500 lbs. of fish planted for the event and nice weather in the forecast this week, make sure to enjoy part of your holiday weekend at Oak Grove!
