Veteran makes Riverside an everyday fishing spot

Aug. 11, 2013 at 3:11 a.m.

Russell Smith, 60, of Victoria, waits Sunday afternoon for a bite at the Riverside Park Duck Pond. The former Marine and Vietnam veteran said he comes to Riverside every day to fish, usually in the pond but sometimes in the Guadalupe River as well.  "You've got to make your own recreation," he said. Smith wishes the city would install more access roads leading down to the banks of the river because his prosthetic leg makes it very difficult to climb back to the banks in muddy conditions, he said.
