Crescent City’s Maready wins Wild Rivers Open Championship by two strokes

Calvin Maready held off a second round charge from Josh Coleman to win the 2015 Wild River Open Championship by two strokes on Saturday at Salmon Run golf course.

“It’s always nice to win. There are some really good golfers out there,” said the Crescent City resident, who golfs at Salmon Run five to 10 times a year.

Maready held a five stroke lead after shooting a low round 78 on Saturday. He saw that lead dwindle on Sunday as Coleman shot a 77. Maready was able to hold off Coleman by shooting an 80 on Sunday, winning the tournament by two strokes.


ODFW: Bowhunting opens Aug. 29, respect fire rules

SALEM — Despite a flurry of Internet rumors claiming otherwise, statewide deer and elk archery seasons will open as scheduled, Saturday, Aug. 29.

“The archery season is starting soon and we hope bowhunters have a fun, safe and successful experience,” says Ron Anglin, ODFW wildlife division administrator. “Because of the extreme fire danger, hunters should be aware that there are fire restrictions throughout Oregon and some local closures of public land associated with active fires and firefighting.”

Hunters need to know what those fire restrictions and closures are before they go afield. The InciWeb website has information on fires and closures due to firefighting, plus maps of closure areas in some cases. Currently, there are active fires and related closures on the Malheur, Rogue River-Siskiyou, Umatilla, Umpqua and Wallowa-Whitman national forests. Closures are also in effect on some BLM lands where there is fire activity.


Bottomfishing off the charts

Tom Meyer from Redding, California was glad to escape the triple-digit heat last week to hammer these lingcod and black rockfish in the cool climate outside the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Anglers who got up early in the morning to beat the howling afternoon northwest winds were able to again bring limits of lingcod and rockfish to the fillet table at the Port of Brookings Harbor. And with winds slated to die down to five knots or less this Sunday, fishermen might again be having a go at seas in the afternoon. It all depends on the swell height.

As of this fishing report, 5-foot swells were predicted to hit the local vicinity, and if the swell drops another foot or two, fishermen will again be hauling in limits of lingcod and rockfish in the afternoon. So keep your eyes peeled on the National Weather Service forecasts as well as the Magic Seaweed website for up-to-the-minute ocean conditions.
