By the standards set by their own success, Gold Beach’s 26-14 loss in their home opener to Vernonia is not up to par. To the trained eye, however, the Panthers made significant improvements compared to their week one blowout loss to Coquille.

Brookings-Harbor cross-country head coach Terry Axel figured his boy’s team would be good this year — he just might not have figured they’d be this good, this early in the season.

The Bruins raced their way to a 3rd-place finish (81 points) at Wednesday’s Tugman Invitational in North Bend, beating the likes of district rivals Marshfield and Siuslaw in the process.

“It was a lot of fun and I was real happy and excited,” said Axel. “It was a good first meet.”

Local angler takes top prize

Richard Laskey, of Brookings, won the 2015 Slamín Salmon Fishing Derby with a 28.9-pound Chinook he caught Saturday morning. Itís the first time Laskey, who has competed in every iteration of the derby since its inception, has won a prize at the three-day contest. Photo courtesy of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

When Brookings resident Richard Laskey brought aboard a nearly 30-pound Chinook salmon early Saturday morning, he had no idea it would be a prize-winning fish, let alone the largest of the tournament.

“I didn’t think too much about it at the time,” said Laskey, who has competed in each of the 12 years the Slam’n Salmon Fishing Derby has been in existence. “I was going to stay out and fish but I called a buddy of mine who was at the port and he said, “You better get that in and weighed.” 

As it turned out, his friend’s instincts were correct. Laskey’s 28.9-pounder was big enough to win the grand prize of $6,000 and a derby championship ring at the 12th Annual Slam’n Salmon Fishing Derby held this past weekend at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Commission approves 2016 sport fishing regulations

SALEM — The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission approved the 2016 Oregon sport fishing regulations at its meeting in Seaside today.

 Under the regulations adopted today, anglers should find it easier to navigate the rules for trout and warmwater fishing, thanks to fewer special regulations creating different seasons, gear restrictions and bag limits for different waters. These changes are the result of an almost year-long effort by ODFW staff to streamline and simplify the fishing rules. Mike Gauvin, ODFW recreational fisheries manager, told the Commission that overly complex regulations is one of the most common complaints among anglers.
