KMZ anglers score salmon on opening day
May 16, 2014 08:56 pm
Opening day of salmon season was good to several anglers, including Don Williams of Brookings who caught this 18-pound Chinook off of House Rock. Stephanie Szewc of Grants Pass also caught this 50-pound Pacific Halibut on the same day. Both anglers were ocean fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Northern California and Southern Oregon anglers fishing out of all three ports in the Klamath Management Zone (the KMZ) caught Chinook salmon of prodigious proportions on the opening day of salmon season in the ocean on Saturday, May 10. The Kong-sized kings ranged from 15 to 27 pounds, which bodes well for the rest of the season, when Chinook really put on the feedbag, adding 2 pounds or more weight a month.

Although only three Chinook were reportedly caught out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on the opener, the fishing continued to get better during the week with limits or near-limits being common on Tuesday.

For so many children in this country, organized sports is simply not an option. The costs of registration, travel and equipment mean that many a child won’t have the opportunity to participate in an organized league and learn the valuable life lessons of teamwork, camaraderie and selflessness that youth sports teach. The Brookings-Harbor Shoe Exchange, a program that takes donations of used shoes to be dispersed to any in need, aims to make sure that every kid has the opportunity to play.

Ocean salmon season opens Saturday, May 10
May 09, 2014 05:31 pm

Limits of rockfish and lingcod were common last week out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, especially for this Klamath Falls resident who remembers fishing the Brookings area long before the north and south jetties were built.

Salmon warriors may begin trolling their favorite setups today, May 10, for salmon in the ocean from Humbug Mountain to the Oregon/California border. This is an “all salmon except coho” fishery, but anglers will primarily be catching Chinook. Hatchery coho are off limits north of the Oregon/California border until that particular season opens on June 21.

Locating Chinook is going to be the most difficult task in the beginning of the season, but once the recreational salmon fleet finds the bulk of the fish, simply make tracks for the fleet and it’s bombs away. Early in the season, the salmon will usually be off the shrimp beds, about 7 to 8 miles from port. By the time June rolls around it’s game on in the local vicinity.
