Rain to usher in steelhead

Sergio Hernandez from Brookings fished with a friend on Tuesday and hauled in limits of lingcod and rockfish on the formidable leadfish while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Rain is a double-edged sword. You pray for it one day and pray against it another.  That’s how great the multiplicity of fisheries is on Oregon south coast and California north coast rivers, bays and oceans.

Here’s a perfect example.

With over 22 days of semi-rainless days since Christmas, local-area rivers such as California’s Smith River and Oregon’s Chetco, Rogue, Elk and Sixes rivers continued to drop from plunkable conditions, to drift-fishing, side-drifting and plug-pulling conditions.  I personally only recorded .47 of an inch of rain since Jan. 1.

The Chetco continued dropping to 702 cubic feet per second on Jan. 15, and that’s pretty darned low for Old Man Chetco. The only successful fishermen were getting up at the crack of dawn and long-lining plugs or baby back-bouncing Puff Balls-and-roe.

Gun Club hosts Crab Buckle Shoot

Brian Fooks of Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada was awarded at the top shooter by scoring 474 out of a possible 500.

The Del Norte Rod & Gun Club was once again the place to be for the top trapshooters in the West as the local club hosted its annual Crab Buckle Shoot Jan. 10-12 in Smith River. This year’s turnout was one of the best ever, with more than 90 shooters from multiple states and two countries in attendance, including competitors from the Curry County, who make up approximately 50-percent of the gun club’s membership.

The top shooter in 2015 was Brian Fooks of Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada, with an overall score of 474 (out of 500). Although Fooks, who has made the 25-hour drive south with several of his trapshooting brethren from British Columbia for seven years now, has won crab buckles in the past, this was his first time winning the big one.

National Championship: Curry County Style

Duck fans at the 101 Bar & Grill are elated as the Ducks score a touchdown in the third quarter to pull within one point of Ohio St.

If you happened to wander into a local restaurant or pub you quickly realized this wasn’t a typical Monday night.

Lady Panthers in 2nd after loss

Something had to give.
