Reel Deal: Rockfish biting hard; Klamath looks forward to more water

The Klamath River has been in the news more for complicated and controversial water allocation politics rather than fishing reports recently, but the sport harvest of fall chinook has begun and anglers are quickly working towards this year’s comparatively small quota.

Black rockfish have been on a fierce bite lately out of Crescent City, while the lingcod are on a bit of a lull.  Ocean salmon fishing — out of Crescent City at least — continues to be really slow with only a few caught sporadically.

Warrior Memories: Wier was a player coaches loved

This is the final column about the 2014 Del Norte Athletic Hall of Fame inductees.

All too often as we watch or talk about football we have a tendency to focus on what coaches refer to as the skill positions — the players who run with the ball or make great catches or the ones who throw the ball. 

While these players are fun to watch and talk about, without the tough, talented athletes on the line of scrimmage, these skilled athletes would have a tough time displaying their skills.

Sirens set for rematch in final home bout

The North Coast Roller Derby is looking for retribution this Saturday as they welcome the Cherry City Derby Girls to the Del Norte County Fairgrounds for the final home bout of the season.

The Tsunami Sirens traveled to Salem, Ore. to take on the Boneyard Brawlers on March 29 and were beaten 230-111 for their first loss of the season.

“We want sweet revenge,” said Adrianna “Full Metal Jackie” Stefko. “They were a pretty formidable team. They were good. We are not playing the same roster that we played last time, but they have some pretty strong skaters.”

110 men, women and children compete in 30th annual Crescent City Triathlon on Sunday 

It was overcast and a little foggy at times, but that was just perfect for the 110 athletes who participated in the 30th Annual Crescent City Triathlon on Sunday.

“Anytime we get above 100 (participants) that is a good turnout,” said race director Russ Burnette.

Many of the participants came to Beachfront Park from cities farther inland that have been entrenched in a heat wave this summer.

Reel Deal: Salmon found in Brookings

Just as many had started to write off the 2014 ocean salmon season finished, anglers out of the Port of Brookings-Harbor started pulling in some of the delicious pink meat as well as several halibut.

Limits of rockcod and half-limits of lingcod are being easily caught out of both Crescent City and Brookings, and fishing in the Lower Rogue and Lower Klamath River has picked up a bit, too.
