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.

Training camp for Redskins, Hoffman

Washington will also hold joint practices with the New England Patriots from Aug. 4–6 leading up to the first game of the preseason for both teams, at FedExField on Aug. 7.

The largest lingcod caught this season thus far for Crescent City Englund Marine’s rod-and-reel contest was plucked from the Pacific last week by an angler aboard Tally Ho II Sportfishing charter boat.

John Passmore, from Grants Pass, caught the lunker of ling weighing in at 33.5 pounds on July 11, putting him in first place for Englund Marine’s annual contest.

On the ocean, bottom fishing for lingcod and rockfish is as good as ever, but salmon are a bit tougher unless you go to the Klamath River, where fall chinook are starting to show.

Sirens get win over happy Storm City team

The bout was somewhat different for the members of the North Coast Roller Derby who made the trip to Ridgefield, Wash., over the weekend. All the Roller Derby rules were the same, but the atmosphere felt somehow unique for the Tsunami Sirens’ 161-135 victory over the Storm City Roller Girls.

“They were fun,” said blocker Adrianna “Full Metal Jackie” Stefko. “They were super happy to have us. They were a very welcoming and hospitable team.”
