Trail #1106 is 11 miles from Brookings up Winchuck River Road and begins at the edge of the parking lot. It is approximately 1/2 mile long with a loop at the end. The trail is wide and, according to the Forest Service website, is wheelchair accessible.

On the Water: Fish Report
June 07, 2013 07:30 pm

Last week’s winds subsided enough Thursday for a few anglers, such as Joe Dickerson above, to catch limits of black rockfish and lingcod.
Everybody who has ever fished for rockfish has brought up a fish that looks like it had way too many cups of coffee.

Its eyes, which are normally sunk deep inside of its head, look like they are about ready to pop out of their sockets. In addition, extending out of its mouth is a red tube-like structure that resembles a bizarre party balloon.

If you ever witness this type of sea creature and wish to release it, do not attempt to pop the balloon with a hook or a needle. Doing so would be deemed a form of fish abuse.

The Brookings Pool opened its doors on June 1 and with the 5th annual Rotary swim lessons, close to 100 third graders call the pool home for an hour each day this week.

For the fifth year Kalmiopsis third graders were able to take swim lessons thanks to the Rotary Club of Brookings-Harbor and its volunteers.

On the Water: Free fishing today, tomorrow

This weekend, June 1 and 2, anyone fishing, crabbing or clamming in Oregon does not need to possess a fishing license, shellfish license or a tag. It’s called Free Fishing Weekend, and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife really has their act together when it comes to introducing fishing to the public.

In Oregon, Free Fishing Weekend literally means “free.” You don’t even need to possess a tag to mark down salmon, Pacific halibut and sturgeon so, for two days, those fish are freebies. However, anglers are required to follow the fishing regulations for each zone.

With just three events to compete in at the OSAA 4A State Track and Field Championships on Saturday, the Brookings-Harbor High School track and field team felt the pressure to make something happen and members of the boys 4x100-meter relay team did just that as they ran for an eighth-place finish and a bit of hardware with a time of 44.19.

“We have two people who have never been here before — me and Zack,” junior Trent Bevan said. “I don’t feel like it affected me, and I feel like we could have run a little faster, but our handoffs weren’t as good as they were at districts.”
