The drought has forced coastal river fishermen to look for other options, although some steelhead are being picked up here and there in the Klamath and Trinity rivers.

“This is the worst I’ve seen it in 22 years of guiding,” said fishing guide E.B. Duggan about the current drought.


Lady Warriors regroup for 49-45 win

Girls basketball avenges early season loss to St. Mary’s advances, to face Bandon in title game

For a while, Friday’s first round game against St. Mary’s at the Bandon Tournament looked like a cruel case of dejà vu for the Del Norte girls basketball team. The Warriors refused to fall into the same trap, however, and were able to escape with a 49-45 victory.

“It was a really fast-paced game,” Cook said. “They pressed us off and on. They went to man against us too, last time they only played zone against us, so that kind of tripped us up a little. It was a very exciting close game.”

Del Norte, which lost 48-48 to St. Mary’s at the Phoenix (Ore.) Invitational on Dec. 13, played the Crusaders to a 21-21 draw in the first half.

Reel Deal: Low flows continue, but steelies still being caught

 Near Thanksgiving I said that it’s nice to entertain out-of-towners with rare winter sunshine in Del Norte County, unless of course you’re a fishermen. 

I never suspected that it would be one of the driest seasons on record and that we would be saying the same thing for Christmas. But there I was yesterday, enjoying the persistent sun with visiting family and looking at a Smith River that was running as low as it looked in July.

It has not been a good season for coastal river fishermen. The rivers are low, clear and sometimes too cold. 

Somehow, some anglers are still posting decent adult steelhead numbers, however, including the North Coast’s U.S. Congressman  Jared Huffman who caught a nice adult steelhead in the lower river while fishing with guide Mike Coopman.
