Panthers face Reedsport

Looking to stay in the race for one of two coveted Sunset Conference playoff spots, the Gold Beach Panthers and Lady Panthers faced the Reedsport Braves on Friday at Gold Beach High School.


If you plunk it, they will bite

Three Brookings-area anglers who plunked on the Chetco last Thursday when the river flow was coming down from 7,000 cfs show off their catches of steelhead caught on Spin-N-Glos.

It almost seems redundant to keep talking about anglers plunking on the Chetco River, but it is my job to report the truth, and by golly, I have no choice in the matter but to do it again this week.

Yes, it rained last week, and yes, the Chetco River swelled up once again because of being pummeled by pails of pelting precipitation. And yes, the technique of plunking was again in full swing.

But one word about plunking.

When I first moved to Oregon over three decades ago, I thought that the word “plunking” was a corny-sounding word that was only used by people who lacked more refined angling skills such as accurate casting, proper presentation and line mending. I actually scoffed at the word.



ODFW seeks public assistance to set halibut dates

SALEM — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife wants halibut anglers to weigh in on open dates for the 2016 spring all-depth sport halibut fishery in the Central Coast subarea. And like last year, there are three ways to give feedback—attend a public meeting, participate via webinar, or take an online survey.


Statement made in win over Douglas

Lady Bruins forward Siena Worthey scored a game-high 24 points to lead BHHS to a win over Douglas.

After playing the second game of a back-to-back on Saturday, the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins set their sights on a showdown against a team that feels they could win the Far West League crown — the Douglas Trojans.

Agency sets groundfish rules, price

SALEM — The Fish and Wildlife Commission met on Monday to set harvest specifications and season structure for recreational groundfish. 

Oregon’s rules are based on the federal rules adopted by the Pacific Fishery Management Council and 2016 harvest limits are the same as last year. 

This year’s recreational ground fish regulations will be a seven fish daily bag limit for all Marine Fish (rockfish, greenling, and cabezon), no more than one of which may be a Cabezon or Canary Rockfish, and no more than three of which may be a Blue or Deacon Rockfish.


Plunkers rule the Chetco River

John Killen from Medford limited out on winter steelhead on the Chetco River last week while plunking a Spin-N-Glo from the bank.

Last week Mother Nature provided steelhead anglers the opportunity to deploy several fishing techniques.

From Saturday through Monday, the Chetco hovered between 2,800 and 3,000 cfs, which are perfect water flows for drift boaters to side-drift or pull plugs. It was also choice water for shore anglers to drift-fish Corkies, yarn balls or Puff Balls, all being used with or without roe.

Then on Tuesday, the river decided to respond to the vast amounts of rainfall that occurred during the week and sharply rose to 8,000 cfs, and it kept on rising to 14,000 cfs on Wednesday. At this point the river turned chocolate brown and it became blown out and unfishable -— but it didn’t remain that way for very long.
