Honoring a legend

Felix Claveran (center), who played a major role in the design and development of the Salmon Run golf course, is surrounded by family in this portrait.

Back in the early 1990’s, longtime Brookings resident Don Jackson was invited to a golf tournament in Weaverville, California. After shooting a round at the Trinity Alps Golf Course, Jackson asked course owner Felix Claveran if he would like to bring golf to Brookings.

After visiting the Southern Oregon Coast, Claveran, who was known for having a larger-than-life personality, took a huge risk by selling the popular family restaurant and the Trinity Alps Golf Course and moved the family to Brookings to oversee the design and development of what is now the Salmon Run golf course.

“Felix would bring the family up to look at the area and they decided to take a crack at it,” said Jackson.

Non-stop rockfish and lingcod action

Read more...
Scales don’t exaggerate. Richard French from Brookings hoists a 7-pound canary rockfish he caught on Monday while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

It is now the end of the month and the most-asked question people were asking at the local fish-cleaning stations in Brookings and Crescent City has been, “Were there any salmon caught today?”

According to Jeff at Englund Marine in Crescent City, the action hasn’t been hot yet, but a possible upcoming salmon scenario is looking very promising.

“We’ve had reports of three or four salmon caught a day,” said Jeff on Thursday. “The water temperature has been steady between 52 and 53 degrees, and although the salmon aren’t here quite yet, the ocean is setting itself up. They could be here any day now.”

Mark Gasich of Brookings, who frequents both ports of Brookings Harbor and Crescent City told me of a bite where five salmon were landed two days in a row in the Crescent City area.

“That’s more fish than the port samplers have checked in at the Brookings boat ramp for the entire season,” said Gasich on Thursday. “If we get a few days where we get an east or a south wind, those salmon could get here really soon.”

Fish Report: Ocean salmon on the way

Read more... 

Salmon anglers fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor trolled anywhere and everywhere from the red can buoy out to 8 miles off of House Rock (also called the shrimp beds), but most fishermen came back with zero salmon to their nets.

However, six Chinook salmon were caught last week, according to port samplers and this eye-witness reporter, who saw one approximate 10-pound king meeting the sharpened end of a fillet knife at the port’s fish-cleaning station.  I also talked to one individual who recently caught two Chinook.
