Reel Deal: Anglers’ last chance for California rockfish and lingcod this weekend

Salmon runs on the Smith and Chetch Rivers is steadily picking up as rain over the weekend brought flows at the Jedediah Smith monitoring station above 300 cubic feet per second on Sunday evening and up above 400 cfs by Monday morning. The Smith has spent most of the week between 300 and 450 cfs, though the low flow closure is still in effect since flows have not yet reached the required 600 cfs. That could change early next week with 1.5 inches of rain in the forecast for both the Smith and Klamath watersheds on Sunday and Monday.

Until then, anglers can still fish for salmon below Rowdy Creek, or try their luck on the ocean in the closing days of the Northern California bottomfishing season.

Warrior Memories: The origin story of DN basketball

Football season is winding down and basketball is about to start. Being a Warrior fan as long as I have been, it is fun to look back at how some sports got started at Del Norte.

During the 1921-22 school year a group of Warrior boys had the dream of playing high school basketball. They had no gym and no coach so they shot baskets wherever they could find a hoop to shoot at. 

Rec league youth basketball signups

Tigers too much for Del Norte

On Tuesday, Thunen Gym hosted a volleyball game between a pair of two-time defending Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league champions in a battle to decide whether Del Norte could grab a share of its third straight title, or if Arcata could pull away for sole possession of the crown. The Tigers managed to stay undefeated in league play with a 3-0 (25-15, 25-13, 25-17) win to wrap up the league title with one regular season game left to play.

“For the last three years it has been a battle between us and them. We tied for the league championship for two years in a row and it has been fun,” said Del Norte assistant coach Pablo Lorenzi. “When these two teams play, it is good action. Even today when we were getting beat like we did, it was good action. You can’t complain about that. Somebody has got to win and somebody has to lose.”

Girls soccer says goodbye to leaders

The Del Norte girls soccer team’s season came to a close on Wednesday with a 3-0 loss to Fortuna.

The Warriors surrendered a goal midway through the first half in the 18th minute. Fortuna found the back of the net again in the 67th minute and scored its final goal four minutes later on a controversial goal in which the Huskies forward appeared to kick the ball out of Warrior keeper Samantha Alanis’ hands.

Volleyball games on “Warrior Sports”

The Del Norte volleyball programs junior varsity and varsity teams are both being featured on “Warrior Sports with Donnie Mattz” this week. The Warriors recent matchup against Fortuna is being played nightly at 7:30 p.m. on Charter Cable channel 4.

Warrior cross country home at last

The Del Norte cross country team wrapped up its season on Wednesday with its only home meet of the season at the Del Norte Golf Course.

The Warriors home meet was run a little bit differently than the other Humboldt-Del Norte league meets so far. 

“I like running at home,” said junior Graeson Cameron. “We know the course pretty well and we don’t have to travel anywhere. It is a nice change of pace.”

Warrior boys soccer fall to top team in the HDN

The Del Norte boys soccer team struggled to keep pace with the top team in the league in its regular season finale Wedneday against Fortuna. The Huskies scored three goals apiece in the first and second halves for a 6-0 victory.

“We knew coming in that we would be playing against the best team in the league,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “I tried to psych them up before the game. I told them it is 11-on-11 and we have to go out there and do something with the ball when we get it. I think they did, even though the opposition was just too good and they controled the ball.”

Grudge match against Eureka

Although the Eureka football team has struggled to a 2-6 record this season, something about the Loggers always seems to get Del Norte fired up.

“They lost to Fortuna and they beat McKinleyville, so they are right in the same place as us,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “You throw in the rivalry game or whatever you want to call it — we get geared up for Eureka. We are going to have to play our best football. They are a big team.”

Reel Deal: River salmon pick up as bottomfishing nears close

As a landlocked child growing up in Iowa, fishing on the ocean was never a realistic possibility. Although local fishing guides have been great about keeping me apprised of conditions and providing me with information for my column, after writing about ocean anglers all summer long I decided it was high time to try my own luck before the banner bottomfishing season comes to a close at the end of the month. Capt. Jim Mitchell of Gotcha Hooked Fish Trips was happy to show me the ropes on Monday.

It was my first time being on a boat in the ocean, and I somehow forgot that seasickness was a real thing. Unfortunately, that didn’t keep me from getting it.
