Non-stop rockfish and lingcod action

Scales donít 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

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.


Youthful Panthers take four titles at Sunset Conference District Championships

Gold Beach's Lincoln Newdall competes in the men's shot put during last weekend's Sunset Conference District Championship meet at Toledo High School.

Gold Beach High School freshman thrower Paris Newdall had only seen limited action for the past five weeks due to a right knee injury.

Newdall pushed aside any discomfort to throw personal bests in both the shot put and discus to win league titles at the Sunset Conference District Championships last weekend at Toledo High School.

“She didn’t say a word to me about it,” said Dana Newdall, Paris’ mother and Gold Beach head coach. 


Graham, Stubna, relay team earn state berth

Five Brookings-Harbor High School track and field athletes will be heading to the state championship meet after qualifying at last weekend’s Far West League District Championships at BHHS.

Bruins hurdler Shaine Graham claimed his spot as one of the greatest Bruins hurdlers in school history. Graham won his third consecutive district title in the 300-meter hurdles with a personal best 40.26, earning the senior his fourth straight trip to the state final meet. Graham also qualified in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 15.34.


Salmon Run holding upcoming tourneys

Lady Pathers win league title

Gold Beach's Kayleanna Ridens rounds first during Friday's 19-0 win over Myrtle Point.

In their first pressure-packed situation of the season, the Gold Beach Lady Panthers responded resoundingly.

Gold Beach entered Friday’s regular season finale against Myrtle Point with just a one-and-a-half game lead against second-place Reedsport. A loss meant that if Reedsport won on Friday against Bandon and on Saturday against Waldport, the two teams would end up tied for the 2A/1A-Special District 5 title and Gold Beach would have blown a golden opportunity to win their first league title in six years.

The Lady Panthers weren’t going to let that happen.
