A strong salmon bite is back for the coasts of Crescent City and Brookings, just in time for  throngs of tourists and ex-pat Del Norters back in town for the Fourth of July.

Rockfish and lingcod ocean fishing  has been pretty good, as usual. Other local opportunities to wet a line include trying for surfperch from coastal bluffs or trying for a cutthroat trout in the Smith or Chetco rivers.

King of Clubs: Why don’t you become the first?

During my time working for the Del Norte Triplicate, I have come across numerous businesses with advertising tag lines directed at our youth.

Some say, “Make a difference: be the first in your family to graduate from high school or college;” or, “You can be the first of your family to get a higher  education.” 

These are wonderful messages and probably inspire a young mind to dream. But what if you struggle in school? What if you don’t have that 4.0 GPA?

Reel Deal: Boats out all week as ocean calms

This past week was probably the first time this June where the ocean was calm enough for a full week of fishing, but that doesn’t mean that king salmon were always easy to find out of the ports of Crescent City and Brookings.

King salmon fishing out of Eureka was reportedly off the charts this week, but further up the coast, the salmon bite was more spotty.  Thankfully, the rockfish and lingcod bite is always prime on our rocky coastline.

Warrior Memories: Eckart is a special coach for Warrior girls

As a very avid Warrior fan of all Del Norte High School activities I look forward to the start of the 2014 school year and the many fun things that take place. One fall sport that I don’t get to watch but love to hear about is girls golf.

While many might say I favor football, I am the father of two girls, so girls continue to have a special place in my heart. The Warrior girls golf team is coached by the type of coach that all parents hope for. Allison Eckart is that special person. Allison is an English teacher at the high school.

All-Stars finish 2nd in District 8

Del Norte’s 11- and 12-year-old Little League All-Star team traveled to Grants Pass for the District 8 tournament this week.

The double-elimination tournament consisted of five teams, including Del Norte, Brookings-Harbor, Grants Pass National, Medford National and Grants Pass American.

For the second year in a row, Ralph Hirt organized a local team consisting of 10 runners from Del Norte and two from Brookings for the second annual Wild Rouge Relay on June 20–21.

Hirt’s team, the Crabby Crew, improved in its second attempt at the grueling 214-mile course through the Cascade Mountains starting near Applegate Lake and ending at the Curry County Fairgrounds in Gold Beach.

The Crabby Crew shaved over an hour off of its 2013 time of 33:28 with an unofficial time of 32:08. Hirt thought some of that was due to the improved weather for the event this year.

As afternoon gave way to evening and the Del Norte Golf Club course started clearing out from the weekend activity, Calvin Maready, Danny Huff and Krystal Farley were sitting in the clubhouse debating with themselves about whether to play another nine holes.

“We almost didn’t go play. We were sitting there and it looked too nice out to not play,”
Maready said. “We thought, ‘What the heck, it is the last day of the weekend, so we may as well play another nine holes. You usually regret it Monday if you don’t.’”

DN football rakes in awards in Gold Beach

The Del Norte football team returned from its annual trip to the Gold Beach Team Football Camp this week, and once again the Warriors had a strong showing.

“We were one of the most together units and one of the most wellbehaved teams up there,” said Del Norte head coach Ray Rook.

The Warriors were also one of the strongest teams at the camp as they proved on Saturday night in the team weightlifting and agilities competition.

The Tsunami Sirens suffered a rare loss in the friendly confines of the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Saturday. The Sirens lost 172-141 to Sierra Regional Roller Derby, falling to 3-3 overall this season. It was North Coast Roller Derby’s first loss at home this season.

Sierra started out strong, grabbing an early lead in the match. Sierra ran a 2-jammer rotation, including “Malice N. Chainz,” who gave the Sirens blockers headaches all night long.

The Surfside Bruins softball team has been around for the past seven years, but it has never had such a high concentration of players from Del Norte.

The Bruins’ 14-and-under team has 11 girls from the county on its 12-girl roster.

“We have gathered kids from Gold Beach, Brookings and Crescent City and put them on one ASA team and taken them around to tournaments,” said head coach Tony Baron, who has been with the program since its inception. “It just so happens that this year all the girls are from Crescent City with the exception of my daughter Tyrah.”
