Tale of two rounds at Azalea event

In the sport of disc golf, there are no rain delays. Tournaments are never delayed on account of wind or cold weather.

In a sport where the athletes pride themselves on playing any day, in any conditions, the New Years Disc Golf Tournament held on Jan. 2 at Azalea Park provided two completely different playing environments in the two round event.

Lady Bruins unable to capitalize on winning streak

After winning their final games at last week’s Brookings-Harbor Invitational, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins and Lady Bruins basketball teams aim to get back on a winning track despite suffering recent losses.


On the water: Steelhead abound in local rivers

When Salem resident Larry Washburn had a hankering to catch a nice hatchery steelhead on Wednesday, he knew right where to go — the Chetco River.

Last week fishing local area rivers was as easy as tossing a coin in the air. Heads — you went to the Chetco; tails — you fished the Smith.

“I’m out here weathering the storm looking for another silver-sided chrome dome,” said guide Mick Thomas, owner-operator of Lunker Fish Trips while fishing the Smith on Thursday. 


Spirit of Sports


Not all photos are created equal. Some are far more powerful than others. 

While on an assignment, Pilot reporters take hundreds of photos during an event — hoping that out of all those pictures, there are a few gems.

With just one or two photos making it to print, most  pictures never see the pages of the Curry Coastal Pilot.

We wanted to take this opportunity to share some of the sports photos taken in 2015 that show the wide-ranging emotions of competition. 

The photos below are likely to stir up feelings similar, if not identical, to those felt by the athletes and coaches themselves. These photos truly do the old cliche´, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” justice. 

Anglers slay local steelhead

Wyatt Lewis from Smith River caught a steelhead that was half as big as he is while side-drifting Puff Balls and roe on the Chetco River with his family on Monday.

A dropping river and textbook aqua-marine coloration, combined with a few schools of fish allowed anglers to slay the fatted steelhead on the Chetco River last week. This is the most action I have seen on this river in several years.  I think it’s safe to say that the drought is over.

Most anglers fished from the bank last week plunking No. 4 or 6 Flame Chartreuse-colored Spin-N-Glos, with the majority of boaters side-drifting Puff Balls and roe.

“It was pretty high for drifting on Saturday,” said guide Val Early of Early Fishing. “The plunkers did really, really good on Saturday and Sunday when the water was more in their favor, then the river kind of turned more in favor of boats.”


Brookings-Harbor Invitational: Lady Bruins claim tourney title

Of all the close games at this week’s Brookings-Harbor Invitational basketball tournament — none of them involved the Lady Bruins.

BHHS put to rest any notion that they would not repeat as champions of their home tournament as they routed their opponents on the way to the title.
