The Smith and Chetco rivers rose rapidly over the weekend, providing salmon holding near the mouth of both rivers a chance to travel upstream. The rise in water flows also allowed anglers to venture upstream of Rowdy Creek on the Smith River for the first time this year. As a wet weekend gave way to yet another dry week, however, both rivers were running low once again by the end of the week with the low-flow closure back in effect on the Smith River as of Tuesday morning.

Warrior Memories: Wild Pigs brought our game to a halt

I really enjoy looking back on my memories as a Warrior. Some are happy some sad, some exciting and some just humorous. 

My brother Frank and I have always said the seasons are not divided up by winter, spring, summer and fall but by football, basketball, baseball and hunting. So when a short time ago a friend of mine said he was going wild pig hunting, it reminded me of a football game we played my senior year, which was the 1950 season.

Del Norte football in for tough finale in Fortuna

A last-minute field goal by rival Eureka on Friday handed the Del Norte football team its second loss in league play, eleminating the Warriors from contention for a Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league title, but the team doesn’t have any time to feel down with a trip to undefeated Fortuna scheduled for Friday night.

“The scenario of, ‘I can’t get what I want so I am going to take my ball and go home,’ is not this group, it is not this team and it is not Del Norte,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “There is something else we are fighting for.”

One of the areas that she has a lot of experience in is planning special events that we may want to branch out to.”
