Reel Deal: From the Deep

By the time autumn approaches, many North Coast anglers set their sights on the rivers’ salmon and steelhead, but rockfish and lingcod are still abundant when the ocean’s calm enough to allow fishing.

Warriors shut out Tigers on road

The Del Norte High Warriors shut out the Arcata High Tigers in a 49-0 win that took the local team to 2-2 in league play.

The Warriors jumped to a big 28-0 lead by the end of the first half, while the defense caged the Tigers to just 8 yards total. 

Senior running back Jackson Evans scored first on a 5-yard run following a Tigers fumble that was recovered on their 20-yard line.

Junior RB Chad Bell followed up with three more touchdowns, his first following a second Tigers fumble that was recovered, once again, on their own 20. 

He used his strength from 7 yards out for a touchdown on the Warriors’ ensuing drive, which was kept alive with a quarterback keeper by Senior Dylan Pease on a fourth and five in the middle of the drive.

It was Bell who kept the drive going on the next possession, with a big fourth down rush. His number was called to finish it out with a 9-yard scamper following his blockers.

The Tigers’ opening second half drive ended with another fumble on their own 25-yard line, which was recovered by junior left guard Zach Taylor.

Jackson Evans would have scored on the following play but a holding penalty forced the Warriors to try again. The drive was threatened after junior kicker Jonathon Calderon’s field goal kick went right, but a roughing the kicker penalty advanced the sticks. Pease scored from 11 yards out, taking the lead to 35-0 with 9:17 left in the third quarter.

Junior linebacker Napooi Shorty scored on a 35-yard interception return.

The Tigers came close to scoring the next drive after a 55-yard run by junior running back Cormack McGrady that took the ball to the 7-yard line. But the Tigers fumbled again, leading to a Del Norte recovery on its own 20-yard line.


Not their day

The Del Norte High girls tennis team dropped a home match to McKinleyville 8-1 on Tuesday.

“The girls played strategically good tennis, but they made too many unforced errors on the big points and lost matches because of that,” said Del Norte tennis coach Jane Rumiano.

“They all played better in the doubles matches, and each player played more aggressively, especially at the net, where many points were won by well-placed, well-paced volleys,” Rumiano said.

Del Norte’s No. 1 singles player, Jordan Babich, lost to Corina Gloor, 3-6, 6-7 (4). No. 2 Debbie Yang was beaten by Wendy Witte, 5-7, 4-6.

No. 3 Alexis Wright lost to Stormy Rhain Jake, 0-6, 3-6, while No. 4 Raili Makela was defeated by Abby Morgan, 2-6, 5-7.


Reel Deal: Rain draws chinook into rivers

When the level fell, anglers got an early crack at season

A wet and wild finish to September, with 6–10 inches of rain reported in some parts of Del Norte County, attracted a large number of chinook salmon into local rivers, starting the season on the Smith River much earlier than usual.

Smith River

Once the Smith dropped to a fishable level Tuesday, after peaking at 40,000 cubic feet per second over the weekend, several anglers took an early crack at fall chinook.

Fishing guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing said that one to three salmon were caught per boat Tuesday and many were in the 30- to 35-pound range.

“I thought that was a good sign to see real healthy, larger-than-normal fish,” said Martin, who fished from the Hiouchi Bridge downstream.

Bob Baitinger of Quincy, Calif., caught a chrome bright king salmon near Peacock Bar while fishing with Martin on Tuesday. The king hit a Fickle Pickle colored T50 FlatFish.

Salmon fishing was much slower Wednesday, with anglers struggling to get one fish per boat or less, Martin said.


Del Norte can't score on Arcata

The Del Norte High girls and boys soccer teams could not muster a goal in home games against Arcata on Saturday, the girls falling 6-0 and the boys 10-0.

The Warrior girls played the highly ranked Tigers on even terms for the first 15 minutes before falling behind 4-0 at the half.

“Our girls hung in there,” said coach Clar Byers. “We stepped up the defense and stayed composed.”

Arcata, which is unbeaten in Humboldt-Del Norte League play, had eight corner kicks in the first half and scored on one of them.

In the second half, Del Norte stole the ball but missed a wide open shot that would have given the Warriors their first goal.

Byers sees his team improving as it prepares for a rematch with Ferndale on the road Wednesday at 5 p.m. Del Norte lost to Ferndale earlier this season, 2-0. On the other hand, Ferndale lost to Arcata 12-1 in an earlier game, Byers noted.


DN tennis gets 2nd victory

The Del Norte High girls tennis team won its second match of the season Saturday at St. Bernard’s, 7-2.

“Overall I was very pleased with the girls’ performance,” said coach Jane Rumiano.  “They had an opportunity to use skills we’d worked on in practice, mostly slice and spin, to defeat St. Bernard’s.”

Rumiano singled out several people for praise, including No. 1 singles player Jordan Babich, who won 6-1, 6-3 over Kate Harvey.

“Jordan played a great match, playing conservative tennis — getting in all of her first serves and playing high percentage shots.”

No. 2 singles player Debbie Yang “took advantage of her left-hand serve to move her opponent wide to open up the court for passing shots to win her match” by 6-3, 6-2 over Mileena Maki.

No. 3 player Alexis Wright “kept things exciting by taking each of her sets to a tie-break, but she dominated those to win” over Kendall Petrusha, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4).

No. 4 Raili Makela “had difficulties getting her serve in because of the wind in her first set, but figured it out and won easily in the second set” over Yvonne Chen, 7-5, 6-1.
