Cold shooting leads to Bruins loss

Bruin Buell Gonzales III defends Hidden Valley's Daryn Kleynhans during Friday's game at BHHS.

Even the greatest of teams have off days. Those games where no matter what a team does, the ball just doesn’t seem to go into the basket.

The Brookings-Harbor Bruins had one of those game on Friday evening against the 4th-ranked Hidden Valley Mustangs.


First and last chance for Chetco steelhead

James Hall of Brookings standing next to his homemade rod holder shows off a steelhead he caught on Wednesday while plunking a Spin-N-Glo at Social Security Bar on the Chetco River.

Plunkers had the first shot last Wednesday at catching steelhead on the Chetco. Unfortunately it was also their last shot as heavy rains quickly raised the river the next day. By Friday morning it rose to 28,000 cfs and was still on-the-rise.  With heavy wind and rain storms in the forecast it’s hard to say whether or not the Chetco will fish next week.

When it does settle down, folks who will be plunking between 5,000 and 6,000 cfs will get the first crack at catching fresh winter steelhead that will be heading up the river.

But rivers aren’t the only things that are rising these days. The price of angling licenses and tags has suddenly skyrocketed.


Big games from Timeus, Rucker leads to rout of Camas Valley

I really need exercise.

An early-December Tuesday. Raining. It’s been raining — hard. I’ve been sedentary since Friday. Need to sweat outside.

Afternoon arrives. A rift in the clouds. A window?

I like windows.

And so, from Brookings, I drive up along the north bank of the River Chetco, flowing fast and fat, wide acres of murky brown embossed with wispy-white rapids and swirling eddies, poked with driftwood beneath a sky of polished lead.


Bruins clean sweep Bobcats
