Pacific herring to arrive in Crescent City

Jim Barbour from St. Helena, California, was fishing the Chetco River with Gary Early of Early Fishing on Thursday, the flow was upward toward 5,000 cfs when he caught this fresh, chrome-bright winter steelhead while side-drifting down to Social Security Bar.

They’re usually here by now, and people are catching them about as fast as they can get a line or a net in the water. That’s how fast and furious the herring action can be in the Crescent City Harbor.

Herring aficionados usually start looking for the first herring to enter the harbor from the end of January through the middle of February, where they come every year to spawn. And for a very brief period of time, fishermen like Captain Jim Bithell of Brookings and owner of Charthouse Sportfishing had a day or two when they could catch about 100 of the silvery-sided baitfish.

But a series of storms kept Crescent City’s harbor full of high, fresh and turbid water, which then drove the herring back out to sea. However, Loren Taylor of Englund Marine in Crescent City says that according to Mother Nature, they will be returning, and they should be returning soon.

Curry County prep wreslters compete at Cottage Grove

The Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach High School wrestling teams geared up for their regional meets by competing with over 40 teams at the Cottage Grove Invitational on Friday and Saturday at Cottage Grove High School.

Packed house for Bruins vs. North Bend

Lady Bruins forward Mishonne Marks soars to the hoop as North Bend’s Cheyenne Datan tries to block her shot. Marks lead BHHS with 14 points as the Lady Bruins remain in first place in the Far West League.

The largest crowd of the season packed into the Brookings-Harbor High School gymnasium on Friday to watch the Bruins and Lady Bruins square-off against their longtime Far West League nemesis: The North Bend Bulldogs.


Keys resigns as Bruins track coach

Veteran Brookings-Harbor High School head coach Jim Keys has resigned from his position at the helm of the BHHS track and field program and longtime assistant head coach Terry Axel has been named as his replacement.

Keys cited “numerous reasons” he stepped down from the position he has held since 2002, but stated the main reason was he wanted the chance to spend more time with his family. 


Anglers score on surfperch; more on rockfish ID’s

On a black rockfish, the rear of the maxillary extends to the middle of the fish’s eye or beyond as viewed from the front of the fish’s mouth.. This photograph clearly shows an example where the maxillary extends beyond the rear of the eye. On a blue rockfish, the back of the maxillary will rarely extend beyond the middle of the eye.

Before rains hit the South Coast last week, anglers were making some nice catches of striped, redtail and calico surfperch. It’s not that unusual for surfperch to be caught in January and February. What is unusual is having sunny skies and calm enough seas to fish for the flat-siders, which is what anglers had last week and can expect possibly toward the end of next week as well, after these series of storms pass through.


Bruins to ‘test their mettle’

Bruins sophomore Isaiah Ross (seen here on the right wrestling at the BHHS Invitational on Jan. 7) won his lone match at the Marshfield Dual meet on Monday.

“Character is counted when you are up against it.”

That quote from the movie “Invincible” applies to this week for the Brookings-Harbor High School team.

The Bruins began what is likely their toughest and most important streak of meets this season by competing at the Marshfield Dual meet on Monday before traveling to North Bend High School on Thursday to face off against league rivals in the North Bend 4-way Dual meet. After that, the Bruins take their talents to Cottage Grove for this weekend’s Cottage Grove Invitational, where they will compete against wrestlers from more than 40 different Oregon prep teams in the last tournament before the district finals on Feb. 13-14.
