Panthers win in Storns’ debut
September 05, 2014 11:13 pm

The Justin Storns era as Gold Beach head football coach is underway, and it began much the way the previous regime had ended — by winning with a smash-mouth style of game that punishes opposing defenses.

The Panthers defeated a surprisingly competitive Coquille Red Devils team, 42-30, Friday night at Gold Beach High School.

Salmon season winds down — anglers gear up for bubble fishery
September 05, 2014 11:12 pm

Wayne Kirkwood from Medford escaped the 105-degree heat yesterday and limited out on rockfish while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Starting today, Saturday, Sept. 6, anglers fishing for salmon in the Pacific Ocean out of the Port of Brookings Harbor can still take two last breaths for the two final days of the “All Salmon Except Coho” season south of Humbug Mountain, which finally comes to an end one hour after sunset tomorrow, Sunday Sept. 7.

But don’t put your salmon gear in mothballs yet. In the Brookings area, when one door closes, another one always opens. Anglers of the salt can still look forward to one more shot at catching a Chinook in the ocean during the (take another really, really deep breath) “2014 Chetco River Fall Chinook State Waters Terminal Area Recreational Season,” which takes place from Oct. 1-12. Hey don’t kill the messenger for relaying the name of a season that took ODFW 11 words to describe. Heck, why not make it a baker’s dozen and take up an entire sentence by adding the words “Pacific Ocean” to precede the word “Terminal”?

Crescent City’s Chadwick Poole, winner of the 2014 Slam’n Salmon Ocean Fishing Derby, poses with his family after he won $6,000 and a sculpture from artist Peter Janusch of lostcoastnaturals.com for catching the largest fish of the tournament at 30.90 pounds. From left to right are daughter Elizabeth Poole, 10; daughter Ashley Poole, 11; Chadwick Poole; wife Tia Poole; daughter Isabelle Poole 7; and daughter Olivia Poole, 9 months.

The first year, he was just a newbie learning the ropes. In the second year, he began to figure out how to fish the Southern Oregon seas. In the third year, he put all the experience together to become a champion.

Chadwick Poole, 39 of Crescent City, won the 11th Annual Slam’n Salmon Ocean Fishing Derby by catching a 30.90 pound Chinook salmon on Saturday, beating out second place James Steil by a mere 1.70 pounds.

Bruins believe now is their time
August 29, 2014 09:29 pm

One of the various offensive schemes the Bruins will run this season is an option offense designed to utilize their speed and confuse opposing defenses.

Coming off a winless season, entering their third consecutive season with a different head coach, and having just six seniors on a 35 man roster it would be easy for the Brookings-Harbor High School Bruins football team to feel as though they were on the verge of another season in the doldrums of the Far West League.

However, that is not the case. As they prepare for their opening game on Sept. 5 at home against Phoenix High School, the Bruins are of the mindset that they have the talent and experience to compete with anybody in their league.

Soon Ae Phillips of Brookings holds one of the 30-pound plus albacore that she and her husband Bob caught while fishing out of the Port of Charleston last week.

Starting September 1, old familiar haunts on the Chetco River such as Morris Hole and Tide Rock that were closed to salmon fishing early in the season since 2009 will now become open again for fly fishing and bobber fishing, but with certain anti-snagging restrictions.

Fly angling gear must include a strike indicator, and bobber angling gear must include a bobber and a leader no longer than 36 inches in length. Any weight other than the bobber or strike indicator may be no more than 36 inches from the hook when suspended vertically. The leader below the bobber or strike indicator must remain suspended in the water column and not resting on the river bottom.
