Brookings anglers catch first ocean salmon

Brian Gagnon and John Kehoe, both from Brookings, were fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor last week when the two anglers both caught a Pacific halibut that weighed approximately 35 pounds each.

The long-awaited first ocean Chinook of the year out of the Port of Brookings Harbor was finally caught last week on Saturday, the very first day of Free Fishing Weekend. An ODFW port sampler measured the fish as being 31-inches long, and the fish was caught just inside the 30-fathom curve.

It would be five days later until the next salmon would be measured by ODFW.

On Thursday, five Chinook that I know of were caught by sportfishermen trolling flashers-and-baitfish setups out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, and well more than a dozen kings were caught commercially as well. I asked one of the Port’s fresh seafood market owners where the commercial fish were being caught on Thursday.


Lack of wind delays Wave Bash competition

Unusually light winds caused competition at the 2016 Pistol River Wave Bash to be delayed through the first three days of the event, according to American Windsurfing Tour officials.

With no heats completed in any division, the AWT will attempt to get in as much competition on Saturday, and if need be, Sunday, as the weekend forecast calls for stronger winds than the previous few days.

“Saturday is looking good,” said AWT director Sam Bittner.

Free fishing weekend means free

This weekend, June 4-5, is Oregon Free Fishing Weekend.  

On these two days, anyone may fish, clam or crab in Oregon and not have to worry about buying a fishing license, a shellfish license or any tags. So clam, crab or fish to your hearts’ content courtesy of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW).

And when ODFW says “free” they literally mean “free.” You are not required to tag fish such as Chinook salmon or Pacific halibut.
