When nature and history interweave, many things can happen, sometimes good and sometimes bad. For residents of — and visitors to — Brookings the Bomb Site Trail is an example of something good resulting when nature and history collide.

The Bomb Site Trail is a trail that starts approximately 15 miles from Highway 101 off of Mt. Emily Road.

Mavericks go 2-2 in pool play
August 02, 2013 09:55 pm

Right-fielder Alec McBride contorts his body in mid-air to snatch the ball and rob a Wyoming batter of a possible triple during the Mavericks’ 3-4 loss on Wednesday. The Pilot/Jef Hatch
It’s a story that has the makings of a Hollywood movie all over it. 

“This is the miracle group,” Brookings-Harbor Mavericks centerfielder Alec Darger said. “We’re definitely not like any baseball team that has played the game before.

Fear not the bait and switch when looking for Chinook
August 02, 2013 09:54 pm

Salmon are a lot like people.  Sometimes you want steak; other times you want oatmeal.  Salmon are no different in the choice of bait they want to eat on any given day.

Basically, Chinook salmon in the Klamath Management Zone are anchovy aficionados. Rarely have anglers failed to get their limits on anchovies in the waters of the KMZ out of the ports of Eureka, Crescent City and Brookings Harbor.

Bulls and barrels rocks Curry County
July 27, 2013 01:05 am

Top prize winner Cody Brixey of Nampa, Idaho, rides the bull “Pig” for a full eight seconds and a judges’ score of 82 points during the Lucky 7 Bulls and Barrels competition Thursday night at the Curry County Fair. “He’s called ‘Pig’ because he eats anything you put in front of him,” bull owner Jerry Howell said. The Pilot/Jef Hatch
It was mostly a matter of brawn meets brain on Thursday night as 29 bull riders tried to ride their drawn mount to the top prize of $3,000 during the Lucky 7 Bulls and Barrels contest on Thursday night at the Curry County Fair. 

“It feels good to win it,” Cody Brixey of Nampa, Idaho, said. “I always do good here in Gold Beach with Howell Rodeo.”

Mavericks win state championship
July 27, 2013 01:04 am

“It’s been seven or eight years since a team from Brookings has won the Babe Ruth state tournament,” Head Coach Keith Wallin said. “We’re pretty excited to be headed to the regional tournament in Klamath Falls.”

Off-the-chart salmon action teaches valuable lessons
July 27, 2013 01:03 am

La Pine resident Ron Herring was rewarded with a limit of Chinook last week as he and his brother Chuck fished out of the Port of Brookings Harbor for the first time. The Pilot/Larry Ellis
I’ll never forget the first Chinook I lost some 30 years ago. As I was bringing the salmon to the boat, I thought the fight was quickly over as it glided toward the net. Mr. Chinook, however, knew otherwise. It saw the boat, the net and my lily-white mug, and decided that it wasn’t ready to be scooped up. As it insidiously turned 180 degrees away from the boat, the hook popped out of its mouth as I tried to turn its head, a term often referred to as “horsing”.

The fact is, most of the time Chinook have control of the angler, not the other way around, and if you decide that you have control over the whim of a Chinook, you’ll probably lose them every time, especially the big ones.

Boulder Creek in the Kalmiopsis
July 23, 2013 09:40 pm

Boulder Creek is nestled just inside the Kalmiopsis Wilderness approximately 35 miles from Brookings. The Pilot/Jef Hatch
Smack on the edge of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness lies Boulder Creek. A tributary of the Chetco River with a year round flow, Boulder Creek is one of those places in the world that makes you say wow. 

The hike into Boulder Creek is also something to make you say wow. Wow, and maybe some other words as you fjord streams, cross canyon-wide washouts and  climb over, around and through fallen trees. All the while avoiding the proliferous poison oak that has grown with rampant abandon since the Biscuit Fire destroyed 500,000 acres in 2002, including areas that are traversed to get to Boulder Creek.
