If there is a swimming equivalent of a “gym rat” Crescent City Swim Club’s Abby Walker would be it.

The 10-year-old fifth grader from Brookings would rather be in the pool than on dry land, practicing the breaststroke in preparation for a meet. 

At last month’s Sun Oaks Aquatic Racing Meet held in Redding, California, Walker blew away the competition in her signature events, the 9-10 year old 50-meter and 100-meter breaststroke, winning by more than five seconds in the 50 and seven seconds in the 100-meter race. More importantly, Walker’s times in the two races have qualified her for the USA Swimming PC Junior Olympic Championships July 11-13 at Independence High School in San Jose, California.

As of Friday, the National Weather Service is predicting that northwest gale-force winds between 15 and 25 knots will continue hammering the southern Oregon and northern California coast this weekend and well into next week.

Until those winds abate, that pretty much puts the kibosh on salmon, rockfish and lingcod fishing in the ocean; however, it does open the door for a wealth of other fishing opportunities, particularly the fishing trifecta.
