Kids are coming to Lake Chabot soon for the Youth Fishing Derby, and we need to do a little shore line improvement so they can reach the water. Please join us on Saturday, March 29 from 9 a.m. to noon. Wear sturdy clothes and shoes (waders if you have them), hat, sunscreen, and gloves. We’ll provide water and refreshments, as well as any tools that are needed. We’ll meet at the boat launch ramp in Dan Foley Community Park. Enter the park at the east end of North Camino Alto, off Tuoumne near Sutter Solano Medical Center.
