Sophia Bauer and Ashleigh Strain, who race karts for Bauer-Strain Outlaw Kart Racing (BSR) of Brookings, completed their winter season at Roseburg’s River Arena Speedway with stellar results.

Bauer, a 7-year-old who attends Kalmiopsis Elementary School, finished second overall in the Pee Wee Beginner Box Class in just her third year of competition. Bauer finished with 1,049 points — just 74 points behind season champion Jayden Trupp of Coos Bay. The mild-mannered grade-schooler won four main event races, four trophy dash races and six heat race wins as she has gained a reputation as one of the fiercest tykes on the track.

Anglers to get first look at salmon abundance

John Vincent from Sacramento, California caught this steelhead on the Chetco River last week while side-drifting Puff Balls and roe with guide Dave Castellanos from Cast Guide Service.

Do I sense a tremble in the forest? Goosebumps in the gallery? Or perhaps the hairs on the back of your neck are standing on end? If you’re an ocean salmon fanatic and you’re wondering about what this year’s season is going to bring, there is a good reason for your unexplainable case of the willies.

This is the week when anglers will be getting their first view of the 2015 ocean salmon abundance forecast, and a meeting discussing these possible corpulent cornucopias will be held by the Ocean Salmon Industry Group this coming Thursday, Feb. 26, at the Hallmark Resort in Newport, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

It’s definitely my favorite part of the year.

Pacific herring to arrive in Crescent City

Jim Barbour from St. Helena, California, was fishing the Chetco River with Gary Early of Early Fishing on Thursday, the flow was upward toward 5,000 cfs when he caught this fresh, chrome-bright winter steelhead while side-drifting down to Social Security Bar.

They’re usually here by now, and people are catching them about as fast as they can get a line or a net in the water. That’s how fast and furious the herring action can be in the Crescent City Harbor.

Herring aficionados usually start looking for the first herring to enter the harbor from the end of January through the middle of February, where they come every year to spawn. And for a very brief period of time, fishermen like Captain Jim Bithell of Brookings and owner of Charthouse Sportfishing had a day or two when they could catch about 100 of the silvery-sided baitfish.

But a series of storms kept Crescent City’s harbor full of high, fresh and turbid water, which then drove the herring back out to sea. However, Loren Taylor of Englund Marine in Crescent City says that according to Mother Nature, they will be returning, and they should be returning soon.
