Local rivers rise, await steelhead

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.

ODFW: 2016 regulations available, licenses on sale

SALEM — Oregon’s 2016 hunting and fishing licenses are on sale now and make great holiday gifts—especially a new youth license for kids that permits fishing, hunting and shellfishing all year for just $10!

The new 2016 Sport Fishing and Big Game Regulations will also be in stores this week. Hunters and anglers will notice a new look to the regulations this year. “We’ve heard from sportsmen that the regulations can be confusing,” said Rick Hargrave, ODFW Information and Education Administrator. “We’ve made an effort to simplify them and hope they are easier to understand.”

Last season, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins wrestling team consisted of five members, one who never competed due to an injury.

Entering the 2015-16 campaign, the Bruins have approximately 15 wrestlers on their roster, tripling last season’s numbers.


Gold Beach Girls Basketball Preview: Lady Panthers have youth, potential on their side

Gold Beach Lady Panthers head coach Chris Clark, center, instructs his team during a practice last week. The Lady Panthers return all-league guard Hailey Timeus, but are young and untested heading into today’s season opener.

Last year the Gold Beach Lady Panthers varsity basketball team amassed an impressive 20-6 record, nabbing the second spot in the Sunset Conference along the way. 

This year, Lady Panthers head coach Chris Clark wants to try and build on last years success and make another run into post season play, but the six-year veteran coach tends to be a realist and says it’s going to, “take some doing,” to get his young basketball team into fighting shape for the season ahead.


Gold Beach Boys Basketball Preview: Panthers ‘get up to speed’ ahead of opener

Panther head coach Jerry Ross, center, puts his players through a rebounding passing drill. Ross believes his team has the talent to win and has challenged his players to put forth the hard work necessary to become league champions.

Gold Beach Panthers hoops boss Jerry Ross knows a thing or two about round ball.

After all, he’s previously taken two Gold Beach Lady Panthers teams to the state championships and won it all. But the veteran coach has no illusions about where his responsibility as a coach ends, and his player’s begins. 


Turkey Trot raises goods for local food banks

Turkey Trotters pound the pavement and donated canned foods to Gold Beach kitchen pantries during the 2015 Gold Beach Turkey Trot held on Saturday in Gold Beach.

Approximately 100 Thanksgiving holiday revelers decided to “step out” and make a difference in the lives of people who might be less fortunate than they are.

The Gold Beach Rotary Club sponsored the annual Turkey Trot. 

‘The Trot,’ as it’s known, is either a 5K fun run or walk, depending on your own personal speed. It’s held the Saturday right after Thanksgiving near the mouth of the Rogue River and the north jetty area of Gold Beach.


Gold Beach Wrestling Preview: Panthers don’t rebuild, they reload

Si tceles Fry, left, and Taylor Bright practice their wrestling moves during a pre-season practice last week. Panther head coach Beau Hanson believes both wrestlers will turn heads this season.

Gold Beach High School head wrestling coach Beau Hansen is optimistic about his Panther wrestlers this season. 

No surprise there. 

For those out of the loop, Gold Beach has long been regarded a wrestling powerhouse in the OSAA 2A division, cranking out generations of state-championship performers. In fact, Gold Beach is in the midst of an unprecedented streak — the Panthers have won at least one state championshp for each of the past 14 seasons.


Gear up for winter steelhead

Tristen Holmes from Grants Pass, Oregon caught this chrome-bright king while fishing on the Chetco River last week.

Fresh schools of chrome-bright Chinook pushing 30 pounds were the name of the game on the Chetco River last week, and anglers were able to catch them by pulling plugs and deploying bobbers-and-bait rigs.

In particular, a group of anglers hit the Port of Brookings Harbor cleaning station in the beginning of the week and at least four fish, each as shiny as a freshly-minted quarter were filleted.

As the week progressed, the water levels started dropping, which meant that the only successful anglers were using bobbers and sand shrimp cocktails, which is a combination of roe tipped with a small piece of sand shrimp.
