Junie strained to break free from Josh Calloway’s grasp, her eyes locked on the water before her.

Carolyn Westbrook threw the tennis ball, Calloway let go and the chocolate lab sprinted to the edge of the platform and took a flying leap.

“She’s doing it for treats,” joked Westbrook, a Smith River resident. “She goes for sticks and balls in our pond. We thought maybe she’d like to try it.”

“It” is K9 Dock Diving with X-Treme AirDogs, a family-owned competition-entertainment organization from Junction City, Ore., which brought seasoned dock-
diving dogs to the Del Norte County Fair for the first round of a multi-city championship series.

A golf lesson for a lifetime

Just plain and simple, life isn’t fair sometimes and you never know what bounce your going to get in the fairway of life.

Recently, my family and I suffered a great loss and I want to use this installment of “King of Clubs” to highlight a very special person and her first and only golf lesson, which I had the privilege of giving.

Almost two months ago now, I started giving free golf lessons at Kings Valley Golf Course. In the beginning there was great interest, and it continues to this day; for that, I am thankful.

Every year, Englund Marine Supply Co. in Crescent City Harbor bestows a rod-and-reel setup to the two anglers who catch the largest lingcod and the largest salmon of the season.

Just two days after the largest lingcod of the season was weighed in at Englund Marine, a 36½-pound ling was brought in by Kelley Thurmond, of Crescent City, on July 13.

The largest salmon caught so far weighed in at 30½ pounds gilled and gutted and was caught by Ted Lowe.

Crescent City ocean fishing

Ocean salmon fishing out of Crescent City has been pretty slow going, according to Keith Richcreek of Pacific West Coast Ocean Fishing Guide Service. There are lots of silver salmon, which cannot be retained, out there but hardly any king salmon to be seen.

Bottom fishing for rockfish and lingcod is almost always consistently good out of Crescent City and this week was no exception.
