Chinook action hot in CC

Read more...
The author caught this large Chinook salmon while trolling a chartreuse-colored Bechhold Bullet and an anchovy in the ocean outside of Del Norte Harbor in Crescent City on Thursday, June 12.

It was another disappointing week for local-area salmon enthusiasts who were craving to be on the water out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, but were beset with gusty northwest winds and sub-par salmon water temperatures again preventing fishermen from crossing the bar and trolling their favorite setups for Chinook salmon. But as the saying goes, when the mountain cannot come to Muhammad, Muhammad must go to the mountain.

So last week, many Brookings anglers who had the foresight to follow that famous old adage, as well as predictions made by the National Weather Service, loaded up their boats and made the trek to Del Norte Harbor on Thursday, a day where mild seas and winds less than 5 mph were predicted to occur.

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.
