Ocean salmon season closes Sunday

Gary Parsons of Brookings whacked this 30-pound Chinook in the ocean on Wednesday while trolling an anchovy outside the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The last day of the Chetco Ocean Chinook Terminal Area Fishery that takes place within 3 miles of shore and within the boundaries from Twin Rocks to the Oregon/California border closes one hour after sundown tomorrow (Sunday, Oct. 12).

If I had to describe how the fishing was this season, I would say it was great on some days — poor on others. There may have been two or three days in a row where anglers couldn’t get a scratched baitfish, then all of a sudden all heck would break loose for one or two days in a row, and fishermen couldn’t keep the fish off their hooks.

Bruins lanced by South Umpqua


The South Umpqua Lancers used a punishing ground game to build an early lead they would never relinquish as they downed the Brookings-Harbor High School Bruins, 44-22 Friday night at BHHS.

Lancer running back/defensive back Kyler Merritt ran for two touchdowns and scored on an interception return to lead all scorers as the Lancers built a 41-0 lead into the third quarter. 

The Bruins offense found a rhythm at that point, playing their best football of the season as they scored 22 points in a quarter-and-a-half.

Salmon fishing on fire for local anglers

Darcy Potter from Roseburg caught this 25-pound 10-ounce Chinook in the ocean by trolling a diver-and-whole herring combo while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Thursday.

I live for this time of year.  The sweet smell of Autumn has definitely pervaded the air, and with that heavenly scent, Mother Nature’s salmon bouquet is enticing salmon warriors to harvest copious quantities of corpulent kings in the ocean outside of the Port of Brookings Harbor, in addition to the Rogue River estuary and Chetco River bay as well.

Anglers in the Rogue Bay are definitely enjoying one of their finest seasons in over a decade.
