 Fishing guides report half the steelhead catches on the Smith River are fresh from the ocean 

This seems to be the Smith River steelhead season that just won’t quit.  There are just under three weeks left in the Smith’s steelhead season, and anglers are still catching fresh fish.

 The annual Brookings-Harbor Rotary track and field meet on Saturday was a little bit smaller than usual, with just four teams in attendance. As Del Norte has done for most of the season, the boys and girls track and field teams both left the meet with first place finishes.

“The unfortunate thing is it was small,” Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar said. “In the past they have had 11 teams but this year, for a number of reasons, there were just four teams.”

 Just 16 day earlier, the Del Norte High baseball team cruised to an easy victory against Illinois Valley in Cave Junction. In Crescent City on Thursday, the Warriors saw a much better Cougar team, but they were able to pull out a 12-5 victory to remain undefeated at 4-0.

Illinois Valley struggled at the plate in the first meeting between the teams, but since that game the Cougars had scored 9, 13 and 17 runs in three straight comfortable wins.

“The kids over there have improved a lot since we played them last,” said Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson. “They have won three games in a row. I give credit to the kids for coming out and not being flat.”


Warrior Memories: Warrior pride lasts a lifetime

It really seems like it was not that long ago that I was a student at Del Norte High School, but when I count the years it is 63 years since I wore the blue and gold of the Warriors.

I am one of the fortunate ones that also got to wear the red and white for my freshman, sophomore, and junior years and the present blue and gold as a senior.


Reel Deal: Fishing 'til the end

Steelhead fishing is still going strong on the Smith River, with guides expecting good fishing conditions through the end of the season April 30. The ocean salmon sport season south of Horse Mountain will began Saturday April 5, and in-river spring salmon are being caught in decent numbers on the lower Rogue River.

Cody Gardner, of Crescent City, caught what he called a “legendary” buck with unique coloring on the South Fork Smith River using a 3/4 oz. cleo, one of eight steelhead he caught that day.
