New fishing regulations on Jan. 15

At a meeting on Jan. 9, the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission set new regulations regarding rockfish retention.

Starting this Thursday, Jan. 15, the bag limit of seven rockfish will remain the same.  However, of those seven rockfish, only three may be blue rockfish.

A combined team of Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach high school wrestlers won 13 of 16 head-to-head matches in front of a large home crowd at the Brookings-Harbor 3-Way Meet on Wednesday at Brookings-Harbor High School.

Gold Beach, who brought six wrestlers to the meet, and Brookings-Harbor, who had four wrestlers compete, joined forces to win six of nine matches against North Bend and later swept Myrtle Point, 7-0.


Anglers score limits of lingcod and rockfish

Luke Christensen of Brookings wailed on the steelhead while plunking a Spin-N-Glo/egg cluster combo at Social Security Bar on the Chetco River.

With picture-perfect ocean and weather conditions last week, anglers fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor scored radically on large lingcod, averaging between 10 and 18 pounds. Also, the mouths of several species of rockfish averaging between three and eight pounds were stung with the pointed ends of treble hooks as well.

Just about all of the folks who were successful at hooking the bottom grabbers fished uphill between Bird Island and Mack Arch.  It’s not that there aren’t any fish to be caught downhill from the Chetco River jetty jaws toward the Oregon/California border, it’s just that typically anglers who want to find more biters head uphill during the winter months.

Reading the water for drift-fishing

This monster winter steelhead was caught by Fred Anderson of Gold Beach while plunking a Spin-N-Glo at Social Security Bar on the Chetco River last week.

With no rain in the forecast this week, the Chetco River should be lowering and clearing, and that means that plunking techniques will probably be out the window. However, anglers can look forward to side-drifting from a boat or drift-fishing from the bank.

As predicted in previous articles significant numbers of steelhead finally made it to the Chetco at the end of the month, and January should be peak season for winter steelhead.  On one particular day toward the end of December, the plunkers took at least 25 fish from Social Security Bar. Luckily, I was one of them.
