To Beat the Heat, go to Brookings

Bruins point guard Brandon Curtis make a pass during Saturday's

For many inland area high school basketball coaches the title of the Brookings-Harbor summer basketball tournament, “Beat the Heat”, is spot on.

“The biggest thing for us is the title,” said veteran Cascade Christian head coach Brian Morse, who has been coaching the Challengers for 28 years. “It’s 108 degrees in Medford right now. So to have a 40-degree swing is refreshing.”

Rule change equals fewer campers

Gold Beach Team Football Camp (GBTFC) was in full swing this past week, albeit with a noticeably smaller camp than in years past. 

The reduction in participating teams, down by roughly half from last year’s camp of over 800 to 405, and from two or three sessions to only one, is due to the absence of the California school teams who historically have been regular attendees of the nationally renowned prep pigskin warm-up venue.

The impact is being felt around Gold Beach, where merchants that have relied on the football teams and their supporters, like motels, restaurants and grocery stores, are feeling the pinch.


Fish deep waters for ocean coho and chinook

Mary Ballman of Eugene, Oregon was fishing with her husband Bob and boat owners Mark and Kathy Watkins on Tuesday when they limited out on lingcod and rockfish while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

On June 27, anglers north of the Oregon-California border may begin keeping up to two hatchery coho a day as part of their 2-salmon daily bag limit. As of late, Chinook salmon have been somewhat scarce (that’s going to change soon), so being able to keep a couple of coho is definitely a shot in the arm for salmon aficionados.

So where have all the salmon been exactly?  All I can tell you is that through my and other fishermen’s personal experiences, if you want to hook up with a salmon, learn to fish deep. Most of the salmon have been between 6 and 15 miles from shore, with the most successful anglers trolling deeper than usual.

But how deep is deep, exactly?


Race: a winner for Brookings

Runners make their way down Old County Road towards the finish line at Azalea Park.

Two-hundred and fourteen miles in just over a day, and at the end, you get to party in the park.

For the first time in its history, the Wild Rogue Relay ended at Azalea Park in Brookings — and the early returns are that the finale was a big success.

“It’s exactly what I expected,” said Brookings Mayor Ron Hedenskog. “I figured this town would really come together to host this right and I think they have.”
