Surf perch fishing an alternative to salmon

A fly fisherman works his line to get his streamer to the right place on a sunny day on the Chetco River last week.

Fishing for Chinook on the Chetco was fair at best last week, with most boats copping a big fat zero. However there were a few driftboats that had some salmon in the box, especially toward the beginning of the week when the flow was up to 1,500 cfs.

With super gin-clear water, the salmon are spookier than a ghost on Halloween and they naturally do not bite as well when they are forced to always be on the lookout. But with rains expected this weekend and into the beginning of next week, the Chetco could conceivably rise to the occasion once again and be kicking out its famous November 30-pound hawgs.

Lady Bruins beat North Bend in a thriller, heading to semis

The Lady Bruins mob Tyrah Baron, center, after she scored a game-winning goal with just 44 seconds left to defeat North Bend, 1-0, Saturday at North Bend High School.

Prophetic in his words, Brookings-Harbor High School girls soccer head coach Fernando Villa predicted that, “one mistake is going to cost somebody this game,” in the Lady Bruins quarterfinal match against North Bend on Saturday.

A misplayed ball on a funny bounce late in the game proved Villa correct.

Tyrah Baron’s goal with just 44 seconds left to play was the difference as the Lady Bruins stunned the North Bend Bulldogs with a 1-0 win at North Bend High School. 


Shellfish advisory, salmon shoot up river

Larry Ross from Half Moon Bay, California and Bill Botieff from Sonoma, California fished on the Chetco River with guide Sean Clemens of Sean Clemens Guide Service on Wednesday, with both parties scoring a hefty Chinook on the first day of regular fishing regulations.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture has issued a very important recreational crab advisory.

Fishermen in Oregon crabbing off of jetties, piers, beaches and bays from Cape Arago (Coos Bay) south to the California border are now being advised to only cook and eat crab after the crustaceans have first been fully eviscerated (gutted) and the gills have been removed.

This is because the toxin domoic acid has been found in the viscera (guts) and gills of Dungeness and red rock crab. Domoic acid is directly linked to paralytic shellfish poisoning, a potentially fatal disease.
