Reel Deal: Chinook show up

Anglers on the Klamath and Trinity Rivers are finally experiencing the chinook salmon fishing that was expected with the second highest predicted return of salmon on record.

Lower Klamath River

Below the confluence with the Trinity River, 398 adult salmon were harvested in the first week of October, with the majority (319) coming from below the Highway 101 Bridge.  

Almost 200 jacks were caught above the 101 bridge, but most of the adults were caught near the mouth.

“Usually it’s getting pretty quiet down at the mouth, but since the mouth is now flowing almost straight out center, fish did make two huge pushes in the last week,” said Sara Borok, California Fish and Wildlife scientist.

Chetco bubble fishery

The Chetco bubble season closes after Sunday, but the chinook salmon that have been seen most recently are averaging 30 pounds, according to guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing.


Exciting game ends in DN’s favor

The Del Norte football team played the role of homecoming spoiler on Friday, beating McKinleyville 22-21 in a closely contested game for the Panthers’ homecoming.

Trailing 21-14 with less than three minutes in the fourth quarter, Del Norte engineered what would be the game’s winning drive.

Quarterback Steve Maready lead the Warriors 66 yards down the field, capped by a 15-yard touchdown run by senior Dylan Pease to pull within a point of McKinleyville.

“Our team fought,” said football coach Ray Rook. “When the chips were down, they fought through it and were able to come back.”

Trailing by one point, Del Norte head coach Ray Rook decided to go for the win with a two-point conversion. Chad Bell took the handoff around the left side and into the end zone to give the Warriors the 22-21 lead with 1:36 left.

“I have confidence in our guys that they can make a play,” Rook said of his decision to go for the two-point conversion. “We thought it was something we would try to see what would happen and they did it.”


Fitzhugh shoots her best score

The Del Norte girls golf team is low on numbers, but the Warriors got a pair of good rounds from both girls that competed at the Baywood Golf Course in Arcata.

Sophomore Sierra Fitzhugh shot a personal best score of 94 at the tournament. Fitzhugh’s previous 18-hole low score was 101.

“Sierra is definitely playing to her strengths,” said girls golf coach Alison Eckart. “She is looking at the tees and playing the fade that she has — she is being very strategic. She is also putting much better.”

Fitzhugh is currently fifth individually in the Humbolt-Del Norte League Big Five standings. She is in position to earn a white star when the regular season comes to a close on Tuesday.

Fellow sophomore Gina Danna was the only other Warrior to turn in a score at the meet. Danna finished with a score of 142. Danna had not golfed before this year and Eckart has been pleased with her progress during the year.


Girls soccer dominates Eureka on road 6-0

The Del Norte girls soccer team battled through the cold on Wednesday in Eureka, but  the Loggers’ offense was too much for the Warriors. Eureka scored four goals in the first half en route to a 6-0 victory. 

“It got cold,” said girls soccer coach Clar Byers. “It was almost down to 50 degrees. The football stadium there in Eureka kind of keeps the wind out, but it was cold.”

The Warriors were on the defensive for the majority of the game. They were out-shot 20-1 in the game, with Eureka getting 10 shots on target in each half.

Del Norte was able to keep Eureka off the scoreboard early, but the Loggers broke through with a goal in the 14th minute. Four minutes later they added another goal and went up by three in the 29th minute. The fourth goal occurred just before halftime, in stoppage time.

“In the second half it slowed down a little bit,” Byers said. “We were holding them a little bit better.”

Byers said he thought that the game looked “much better” than when Eureka traveled to Crescent City on Sept. 14 and came away with a 9-0 victory over Del Norte.

“I saw some positive things,” Byers said. “The girls were trying to pass and stay on players.”


Good play not enough for boys soccer to win in shutout

The Del Norte boys soccer team was the aggressor for most of the match against Eureka on Wednesday, but the Warriors couldn’t put the ball into the net, falling 2-0.

Although the game ended in defeat, the Warriors felt that they played well against Eureka.

“In my four years of coaching here, that game was the best,” said boys soccer coach David Sanyaolu. “It showed me that these boys are capable of something good if things click for us. All the philosophy of soccer that I believe in and have been teaching them, they brought it out.”

The Del Norte boys had solid performances throughout the lineup.

“We had good team spirits.Everybody worked together,” Sanyaolu said. “Our defense was more solid, our passing was straight and more accurate than previously and our attack was swift. Everybody rose to the occasion.”

Sanyaolu estimated that the Warriors managed 12 good scoring chances throughout the course of the game, but they just could not get the ball into the net.

Warriors pull out win at Arcata

With the Del Norte High girls tennis team clinging to a 4-3 lead at Arcata, Tuesday’s contest came down to the final two doubles matches.

The Warrior teams of Debbie Yang and Panhia Yang, and Raili Makela and Marine Henry, won them both to take the match, 6-3.

“Debbie and Panhia Yang and Marine Henry all won both their singles and doubles matches in a convincing fashion, determined to do whatever it took to make their opponents make mistakes and set themselves up for winners,” said coach Jane Rumiano.

Del Norte’s No. 1 singles player, Jordan Babich, fell to Hannah Mathew, 4-6, 2-6. No. 2 Debbie Yang beat Hanna Burnett, 6-4, 6-2.

No. 3 Alexis Wright “had a memorable come-from-behind match, where she won long rallies by setting up her opponent, then hitting good passing shots or lobs,” Rumiano said. Wright won 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, over Kenai Momao-Hugo.

No. 4 Makela lost her singles match to Kendall Boyett, 6-7 (7), 6-7 (7).

“Raili had a close two-set tiebreak match, which was a big improvement over her performance in the previous match against Arcata,” Rumiano said.
