Bruins to receive grant on Thursday

The Brookings-Harbor High School golf team will receive a big boost to their future when they accept a grant from the Wild Rivers Foundation on behalf of the Ed and Barbara Brattain Memorial Fund at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday in front of Brookings-Harbor High School.


Goodbye Chetco steelhead, hello rockfish and surfperch

Mark Gasich of Harbor holds up two lingcod and some hefty black rockfish he limited out on while fishing plastics out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Thursday.

The Chetco will be closing its doors to the retention of steelhead and salmon this week one hour after sunset on Tuesday, March 31. Not that there are any salmon to be caught.  But March can often be a good month to cash in on the end of the winter steelhead run, and, by the way the river is looking, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday should all be great days to plunk, side-drift, drift-fish or pull plugs.

As of Thursday, the water had a Coke-bottle-green tinge and was at 2,900 cfs. You couldn’t have ordered better water conditions, so this is definitely your last chance at tripping the winter steelhead fantastic.


A journey of discovery and solidarity

For their annual trip to the University of Oregon to play a three game set at P.K. Park, Brookings-Harbor High School baseball team head coach Keith Wallin had a specific agenda in mind.

“For us it was more of a trip to find out who we are, come together as a team, and meld all these different pieces together,” said Wallin after his team returned from winning one of three games over a two day period earlier this week. ”We are trying to find out who we are, what kind of team we will be, and how we will play together.”


Boaters urged to beware of obstructions

In the last few weeks, the Oregon State Marine Board and local Sheriff’s Office marine patrols were notified by boaters about several dangerous navigation obstructions resulting from wind storms and rainfall. River banks are saturated in some areas, resulting in landslides and tree falls. The Marine Board reminds boaters who are venturing out in the beautiful weather to scout ahead, know where to put in and take out, pay attention to posted warnings, carefully read the river and check the Marine Board website ahead of time to learn where the known obstructions are located.


Runners hit CC for annual event

Ally Manley, of Brookings, won the women's 15K race on Saturday at the Redwood Wild River Run in Crescent City. Manley finished nearly 10 minutes faster than her next closest female competitor.

The 2015 Redwood Wild River Run brought 241 people to the covered bridge on South Fork Road for the annual event. This year’s run featured a pretty even split of runners from Oregon and California with two more runners from Boise, Idaho. and another pair of participants from Malden, Maine.

Although the 241 runners were down a little bit from the record-setting turnout of 272 in 2014, that was just fine by organizer Ralph Hirt, who had to deal with every runner as they crossed the finish line.

Anglers hauling in huge lingcod and surfperch

Dale Patrick of Harbor went fishing with a friend on Tuesday and put the royal hurtin’ on some mighty big black rockfish and hefty lingasaurs while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

When I moved to Brookings 34 years ago from southern California, the biggest surfperch I had caught were the ubiquitous barred surfperch.

Then I took a walk on the beach and saw what appeared to be humongous barred surfperch with red-tinged fins, the formidable redtail surfperch, and I instantly became an Oregon surfperch addict.

They go by many names. Some call them redtail surfperch while others call them pinkfin surfperch. But call them whatever you want, for some reason they have been schooling up in copious quantities in Gold Beach area beaches, and some of them have been monsters.


Lady Bruins make big strides after big loss

After suffering an eye opening 14-0 defeat at the hands of the Phoenix Pirates on Wednesday, the Brookings-Harbor High School Lady Bruins softball team rebounded with a 5-2 win over McKinleyville (California) on Friday.
