Opportunities aboud for free fishing weekend

Welcome to the annual Oregon Free Fishing Weekend. For Saturday and Sunday, June 6-7, everyone in Oregon is allowed to fish, crab and clam for free. And when Oregon means free, they mean free -— no strings attached (or hidden fees, as in California’s so-called free fishing weekend).

If you have never bought a fishing or shellfish license, or purchased any halibut or salmon tags,  this one’s on ODFW. For those who have already have purchased fishing and shellfish licenses, or bought tags to go with them, you can leave them all at home, including the tags, at least for Saturday and Sunday.

For free fishing weekend, you are not required to tag any salmon or Pacific halibut. You are only required to follow the rules that are in the 2015 fishing regulation handbook.

Honoring a legend

Felix Claveran (center), who played a major role in the design and development of the Salmon Run golf course, is surrounded by family in this portrait.

Back in the early 1990’s, longtime Brookings resident Don Jackson was invited to a golf tournament in Weaverville, California. After shooting a round at the Trinity Alps Golf Course, Jackson asked course owner Felix Claveran if he would like to bring golf to Brookings.

After visiting the Southern Oregon Coast, Claveran, who was known for having a larger-than-life personality, took a huge risk by selling the popular family restaurant and the Trinity Alps Golf Course and moved the family to Brookings to oversee the design and development of what is now the Salmon Run golf course.

“Felix would bring the family up to look at the area and they decided to take a crack at it,” said Jackson.
