Brookings-Harbor High School sophomore Chris Burton took the pressure of the Far West League District Championships and used it as a tool to shave more than 30 seconds off his previous personal-best time of 16:40 and finish fifth in Thursday’s district Championships. 

Burton’s time also qualified him for the OSAA 4A State Championships on Saturday, Nov. 2 at Lane Community College in Eugene.

Approximately 23 people from ODFW, Oregon South Coast Fishermen and the public showed up at Social Security Bar on Wednesday for the first seining of Chinook for the Chetco Broodstock Program, with a goal of getting 60 fish. They had no problems meeting that goal.

A total of 57 adult Chinook, with the majority of them being large 4-year-olds and a lesser proportion being 3-year-olds, plus four wild jacks made up a total of 61 Chinook that were transported to Elk River Hatchery, where they will be held in raceways until they are ripe and ready for spawning.

With Thursday’s 5-0 victory over the visiting Pirates of Pacific High School, the Brookings-Harbor High School boys soccer team has moved one step closer to having a perfect regular season all wrapped up to stand at 13-0-0.

Not only does the Bruins’ record mean they are the undisputed Far West League champions, they are also the top ranked team in the state at the OSAA 4A level.


Bruins lose on the road

Two minutes and 15 seconds into the game and three touchdowns had already been scored as the Brookings-Harbor High School football team lost 6-59 to the Bulldogs of North Bend on Friday.

The Bulldogs started the scoring madness with a single-play drive to go up by seven, just 1:42 into the game.

Despite the Brookings-Harbor High School volleyball team’s final record of 1-11 in Far West League play, Head Coach Sam Greenlee is pleased with what her team has accomplished.

“Moments of greatness,” she said. “When they put it together it is amazing to see what those girls can do. I’ve seen such growth and change in these girls.”


Chinook stacking up in Chetco

Anglers use Kastmasters and other various spoons for Chinook salmon at the Port of Brookings Harbor’s crab pier located on the south jetty, while a group of anglers troll for salmon in the background. The Pilot/Larry Ellis
At the Oregon South Coast Fishermen’s meeting held last Wednesday, it was announced that this year, four Lamiglas rod-and-reel combos will be raffled off to anglers who catch a hatchery Chinook in the Chetco River.   But there is a catch to the catch.  The snout of your fish must contain a coded wire tag.

The raffles are an incentive by ODFW to get anglers to turn in their hatchery salmon snouts. So if your fish is missing an adipose fin, make sure to visit the kiosk at the Port of Brookings Harbor fillet station.  Inside the kiosk are plastic bags and forms to fill out.  Directions on how to cut off the snout and place the items in the plastic bag are clearly explained on the outside of the kiosk.
