Slow fishing in the area has anglers waiting for opening of the ocean salmon season on May 1

Fishing on the Wild Rivers Coast has slowed to a crawl over the last week. With the steelhead largely moving on from the Smith River and choppy ocean conditions keeping sport anglers out of Brookings Harbor, the only thing left for local anglers to do has been to prepare for the ocean salmon season, which kicks off next week.

Brookings Harbor

While lingcod and rockfishing have been strong out of Brookings all spring, but strong winds and choppy seas have kept most sport fishing vessels at the docks early this week. Swells predicted to reach 10 or 11 feet on Friday will likely keep anglers off the ocean through the weekend.

DN baseball shows leadership during split in Arcata

Warriors win 4-1, fall 6-2 in doubleheader with Tigers on Friday 

The Del Norte baseball team turned things around dramatically last week.

After falling 15-1 at home to Arcata on Wednesday, the Warriors made the trip south to take on the Tigers again in a doubleheader on Friday. Head coach Travis Johnson blamed a lack of effort and desire for the rout on Wednesday, but on Friday he saw a whole different team during Del Norte’s 4-1 win and 6 -2 loss to split the doubleheader.

Del Norte track fares well at Prefontaine

Bell finishes first in two events; 4x100 relay teams both take second 

The 15th Prefontaine Rotary Invitational is the biggest and most competitive track meet that the Del Norte track and field team will compete at during the regular season and the Warriors pulled through with some impressive performances to finish among the leaders at the 30-team meet.

The Warriors took 24 of their top athletes to Coos Bay, and head coach Samuel Escobar said the trip was well worth it.

DN boxer draws in first fight in Trinidad

It was a rude introduction to the sport of boxing for local fighter Sam Nunes, who trains with Warrior MMA.

In Nunes’ first official boxing match he caught a hard punch in the first round and was knocked down. Nunes was able to rebound from the tough start to earn a draw.

“I think (Hullance’s) plan was to come out and knock him out,” said Warrior MMA coach Ron Otremba. “It being Nunes’ first fight, he just kind of stood there and got hit. After that he realized he was in a fight. He pretty much controlled the fight after that.”

Del Norte takes first in boys, girls varsity and boys fresh-soph standings at home meet

The Del Norte track and field team had one of its most successful meets of the season on Wednesday at the second Humboldt-Del Norte league meet of the year and the only regular season meet in Crescent City.

The Warriors swept the competition, which also included Brookings-Harbor. The boys scored 146 team points to edge out Arcata for first by nine points. The girls scored 164.5 team points, beating second-place Arcata by 62.5 points. Even the freshmen and sophomore boys posted the top JV score of the day with 152 team points.

Reel Deal: Ocean salmon season released as steelhead leave the Smith

With the steelhead recently moving out of local rivers and Lake Earl running low after being breached, fishing in Del Norte County has hit a dead period. Most anglers are now awaiting the ocean fishing season and they got good news as the Pacific Fisheries Management Council announced this week the start of the ocean salmon season will be May 1.

Smith River

The recent rains in the Northwest seem to have taken with them the last of the steelhead on the Smith River this week.

Warrior softball sweeps Tigers

Del Norte stays perfect in league play with 9-4, 10-3 wins over Arcata 

The Del Norte softball team stayed perfect in Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 League play on Friday by sweeping a doubleheader in Arcata. The Warriors won the first game 9-4 and topped the Tigers 10-3 in the nightcap.

All three of Del Norte’s league wins have come against Arcata.

“Everybody did their job on defense but our offense was a little bit slow,” said Del Norte head coach Tom Moore. “We are getting it, though.”

Newton rolls perfect game in Oil League

For the second time in his life, Jeff Newton was perfect during the Oil League at Tsunami Lanes on Wednesday — for one game at least.

While bowling with his three sons on the Newton Clean Sweep Blue team, Newton was trying to break in a new bowling ball. Newton said his brand-new Storm Pearl Crux ball, which smells like root beer, helped him get off to a fast start in the first of three games with a pair of strikes in the first two frames.

“I told my boys after my second strike that I was going to get 300,” Newton said.

Warrior Memories: Longtime friend and teammate John Fraser

It is always fun to look back at former high school teammates and the great times we had together. One of these special people is John Fraser.

John was a 1951 Warrior graduate who became a teammate before we even started high school. We started playing basketball together while still at Crescent Elk, playing under the direction of Ed Fraser, John’s dad. Ed had been the head coach for the Warriors for 20 years before retiring. Ed will always be one of my all-time favorite coaches because of all the things I learned from him.

Del Norte softball kicks off league play with 12-0 victory in five innings against Arcata

The success of the Del Norte softball team in the nonconference preseason seems to have spilled over into league play. The Warriors opened Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 competition on Tuesday with a resounding 12-0 victory in five innings due to the mercy rule.

Starting pitcher and team captain Colleen Markussen controlled the game from the mound. Although she issued three walks in five innings, she also registered 10 strikeouts and didn’t allow a single hit.
