 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.

Warrior girls beat Cascade Christain 56-45 for 3rd place

The Warriors, who were coming off of their first back-to-back losses of the season, were pleased to be able to head into winter break with a victory.

“It was good to get the win,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “We went into the game at ease. I don’t think they were too worried about the previous two games.”
