With the advent of digital cameras , the MLPA and other effects on local fresh water fisheries making fishing a thing of the past, this sign in Orick Ca. is a blast from the recent past.
Too bad for the fishing industry. In the ocean, they are caught in between the off shore trawlers that rape the oceans of the world and some over zealous environmental groups that would put all fishing off limits to most people.
There is a bright side to Orick Ca. and that is the Palm Motel & Cafe. Next door to the old Orick Theater on U.S. Highway 101, it has been refurbished and is a welcome sight for wary travelers caught between the two towns with diverse services.
