Rain hinders angling on Chetco, Smith Rivers

Read more...
A group of plunkers carefully watch their rods on the last fishable day on the Chetco River last Saturday when the river was 4,500 cfs.

One week ago today, under picture perfect water conditions, anglers plunked from the comfort of their own vehicles at Social Security Bar on the Chetco River. The river was flowing at 4,500 cubic feet per second and it had a beautiful tea-green hue. Two winter steelhead were caught that I know of on flame-chartreuse-colored Spin-N-Glos.  Most likely there was a fish or two caught after I left.

Then the rains came down with abandon and the river started rising sharply on Sunday and ran everybody off the river. The Chetco just kept on rising the rest of the week and it finally blew out, spewing chunks of brown mud and who knows what else.

Local biking group clears, rides trails

A bicyclist from the Wild Rivers Coast Mountain Bike Association enjoys one of the local trails during a group ride.

Many of the trails in Curry County are rocky, overgrown and seemingly impassable for recreation — but the Wild Rivers Coast Mountain Bike Association has been hard at work to change that. In just a few months, the club has grown from a handful of cycling enthusiasts to a group that meets regularly to ride their bikes and maintain trails on the Southern Oregon and Northern California coasts.

The group, which currently has about 45 members as well as a leadership team, meets monthly to discuss board business and membership. Club meetings are the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m., at Panther’s Den Pizza and Deli, located at 29513 Ellensburg Ave. in Gold Beach.

“So far, we have people in Gold Beach, Pistol River, Brookings and Crescent City,” said Shawna Martin, a member at large and the primary contact for the group.

Local rivers rise, await steelhead

Read more...
T.J. Davis of Jordan Valley travelled 550 miles to fish last week on a calm day out of the Port of Brookings Harbor and was rewarded with rockfish and this lingcod.

A cold front moving inland on Thursday brought the first real significant increase in river height and water flows to the Chetco and Smith Rivers. The National Weather Service is predicting that a series of alternating warm and cold fronts should continue hammering the local vicinity this weekend and into next week, bringing with them even higher water levels and river flows. The resulting rising rivers should also usher in the last batches of Chinook and start escorting the first pods of steelhead into both river systems.
