Rain sparks salmon to bite

Jim Hall from Eugene, Oregon fished the Chetco River on Thursday with Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing when Jim caught these two nice kings while back-trolling wrapped MagLip and Hawgnose Flatfish.

Salmon fishermen love to see rain, but they don’t like to see too much of it at one time. The ideal condition that anglers hope for is enough rain to raise a river to fishable levels, but not a total blowout that floods the area and sends fish packing upriver all at one time.

All I have to say is it’s about time!

Last week Mother Nature brought picture-perfect rain conditions to rivers ranging from California’s Smith north through Oregon’s Winchuck, Chetco, Elk and Sixes Rivers.  These are accordion-style pulsations of rain that anglers dream about — a little bit here and a little bit there.


BHHS plans to develop intramural sports program

Brookings-Harbor High School Athletic director Buell Gonzales announced this week plans to create an after school intramural sports program for the district that serves students of all financial and skill levels.

“This is offering an opportunity to be involved after school,” Gonzales told the school board Wednesday. “And not exclude students based on ability to pay or grades.”

Lady Bruins finish 2nd in state

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins soccer team finished second in the state after a 5-0 loss to Scappoose in the OSAA 4A State Championship game at Liberty High School in Hillsboro. It’s the highest finish that any team has reached in the program’s history.

In championship games, the team that handles the pressure the best is typically the victor. In Saturday’s OSAA 4A State Championship soccer game, that team was the Scappoose Indians.

Scappoose got two goals from both Natalie Muth and Elanor Jones in a convincing 5-0 victory over the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins to earn their second championship in three years.


Several Bruins, Lady Bruins on all-league lists

Several Bruins and Lady Bruins athletes were honored as Far West League coaches released their all-league team lists for the fall sports season.

The Bruins and Lady Bruins soccer teams received the most first-team nods, with a total of eight selections combined.


Trio of Lady Panthers make all-league squad

Heidi Hancock, left, and Sadie Allen both made the all-league team.

A trio of Gold Beach Lady Panthers were honored by Sunset Conference coaches as the Sunset Conference all-league volleyball teams were announced last week.

Seniors Heidi Hancock and Sadie Allen, as well as sophomore Paris Newdall, were named to the All-Sunset Conference team as honorable mentions.


Surf perch fishing an alternative to salmon

A fly fisherman works his line to get his streamer to the right place on a sunny day on the Chetco River last week.

Fishing for Chinook on the Chetco was fair at best last week, with most boats copping a big fat zero. However there were a few driftboats that had some salmon in the box, especially toward the beginning of the week when the flow was up to 1,500 cfs.

With super gin-clear water, the salmon are spookier than a ghost on Halloween and they naturally do not bite as well when they are forced to always be on the lookout. But with rains expected this weekend and into the beginning of next week, the Chetco could conceivably rise to the occasion once again and be kicking out its famous November 30-pound hawgs.


Mindset, composure key for title-bound Lady Bruins

The Lady Bruins loose yet focused demeanor has been a key to their playoff success and will be needed in today’s championship game against a tough Scappoose team.

At 3:30 p.m. today (Saturday, Nov 14), in the Portland suburb of Hillsboro, the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins soccer team will play what is likely to be the most important match in their lives.

Brookings-Harbor (14-2-2) will face the 2nd-ranked Scappoose Indians (17-0) in the OSAA 4A State Championship game at Liberty High School.
