Volleyball: Lady Bruins Skills and Team Camp

First year Lady Bruins head coach Emilie Aliamus, center right, directs her players through drills during the BHHS Skills and Team Camp on Wednesday.

The Brookings-Harbor Volleyball team held the BHHS Team Camp earlier this week, where 22 potential Lady Bruins players took part in various drills and skill building exercises. 


Afternoon fishing opens on Rogue River

MEDFORD — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has lifted afternoon fishing restrictions on the Rogue River and tributaries. Anglers can now fish from one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset from Fisher’s Ferry boat ramp to the mouth of the river, and on all tributaries normally open to fishing. The change is effective immediately.

Releases of cooler water from Lost Creek Reservoir typically increase this time of year to minimize disease and pre-spawning mortality in adult fall Chinook migrating upstream. Flows from the reservoir were increased on Aug. 12.  Combined with a milder weather pattern, river conditions should be back to near normal for August, allowing fishery managers to re-open the river to regular fishing hours.


ODFW offering fall pheasant hunting workshops

SALEM — Portlander Vickie Valdez had never shot a gun before when she decided she wanted to learn how to hunt. She chose an ODFW pheasant hunting workshop to get started—and went home with a pheasant her very first day.

“I had never even held a gun before, so I wanted to know I was learning good habits and responsible practices from the start,” Valdez told ODFW. “I appreciated ODFW’s emphasis on safety and the individual guidance we received during the shooting practice. I actually hit most of my clays, and felt that I was given plenty of practice and was prepared to hunt.”


Stampede provides thrills, fun

Jesse Freitas, right, receives a high-vfive by Reed Ringer after making a long birdie put on the hole No. 2 during Sunday’s round of the Stampede Tournament at Cedar Bend Golf Course.

Warm weather made for some low scores as the Cedar Bend Golf Course hosted the 18th Annual Stampede Golf Tournament on Saturday and Sunday.

According to many of the golfers, the sun beating on the course the entire week made for drier, faster fairways. 

“I know the course because I play here a lot, but I think for somebody else, they’d probably want to play with less club,” said former Gold Beach High School standout Shane Roberts. “The fairways played faster, but not the greens.”

Commission sets bird hunting regulations

SALEM — The Fish and Wildlife Commission set 2015-16 game bird hunting regulations Thursday at its meeting in Salem. The major changes from last year will:


Opportunities abound for anglers

Ana Ville and Matt McDonald from Ashland, Oregon joined in on the albacore action that took place last week out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

A little bit of everything was caught last week in the ocean in the Brookings vicinity, including albacore, rockfish, lingcod, cabezon, surfperch and Dungeness crab. In addition, the lower Rogue bay has had some stellar bite periods of Chinook salmon.

On Sunday, anglers who took advantage of 5- to 8-knot winds and 2-foot swells, tripped the tuna fantastic, venturing on the average of 34 miles out to sea on a 260-heading from the Port of Brookings Harbor. It’s been more years than I can remember when tuna were caught within a two-week window out of Brookings, and it looks like more of the same action might occur later this month as well.

Most boats that ventured out to sea reported between six and 28 albacore per vessel, with tuna being caught on both hand lines or rods-and-reels while trolling zucchini or Mexican Flag tuna clones.

Tournament golf seems to suit Gold Beach’s Lucas Vanderlip just fine.

The young phenom followed that win with a victory the next day at the Umpqua Dairy Junior Golf Tournament at Watson Ranch Golf Course in Coos Bay.
