Costs of hunting, fishing licenses keep climbing

Hunting and fishing license costs in Oregon are steadily going up, starting next year and continuing every other year until 2020.

An annual hunting license for an Oregon resident, which costs $29.50 this year, will increase to $32 next year, $33.50 in 2018 and $34.50 in 2020. An annual state resident fishing license, which costs $33 this year, will cost $38 next year, $41 in 2018 and $44 in 2020.

Increases in the license costs are not new, but the frequency of the price bumps and the smaller size of the increases are, according to Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Service data. Since 2004, the cost of annual hunting and fishing licenses for residents has increased every six years, said Aaron Jenkins, economist with the agency in Salem. Gov. Kate Brown this summer signed a bill setting the gradual price increases, he said.


Local anglers hauling in fish

D. Collins from Crescent City took a trip up to Social Security Bar on the Chetco River last Tuesday and caught Chinook salmon while using roe or live sand shrimp underneath a bobber.

Large quantities of Chinook continue stacking up daily in the lower Chetco River tidewater holes such as Morris Hole, Tide Rock and Social Security Bar. The most successful anglers are using freshly-cured roe or live sand shrimp underneath a bobber and they are getting most of their hookups within the first two hours of first legal light.

There are a lot of smolts in the river, so anglers are encouraged to use large hooks to avoid hooking the juvenile salmon.

Anglers are catching a mixture of fresh incoming chromers as well as fish that are sporting darker coloration. There were also a few anecdotal reports of big fish snapping anglers’ lines.

The Brookings-Harbor Bruins boys cross-country team ran the race of their lives on Thursday, and it earned them their first league title since 2004.

Led by senior captain Chris Burton, who won the individual race with a time of 16:13, the Bruins had their top five runners place 17th or higher. In one of the closest league meets in Far West League history, the Bruins won the district title by a mere two points over defending champion Siuslaw; 57 points to 59.

We are all UCC Strong

Members of the South Umpqua and Brookings-Harbor boys and girls soccer programs pose together with a #UCCSTRONG poster that was presented to South Umpqua by the BHHS soccer teams. The poster featured messages of support from the Bruins and Lady Bruins. Former South Umpqua soccer player Rebecka Carnes was one of the victims of the UCC shooting on Oct. 1.

Senior night, last regular season games, playoff and league title implications — all were overshadowed by a moment of solidarity that left a lump in throats and tears in eyes.
