Lane County Sheriff’s Deputies are asking everyone on both sides of the Lincoln-Lane County line to be on the lookout for this man…Buddy Valentine (he has a number of aliases). Valentine allegedly beat his roommate at their residence just inside the Lane County Line, south of Yachats. Pending charges include attempted murder, assault and arson. The victim was transported to the Riverbend trauma center in Springfield.

Lane County Sheriff’s Deputies say no one should approach Valentine due to possible volatile behavior. Simply call 9-1-1 and give the operator your information – where and when you saw him. As you can see, he’ll stand out in a crowd. Again, don’t approach him, just call 9-1-1 and give your information.

Chris Burns - Fishing

CENTRAL COAST FISHING
Week of August 28th

In the Creel: With Labor Day weekend upon us, there are myriad opportunities for putting some fresh seafood on the table. Non-selective (wild and hatchery) Coho season opens Saturday and all forecasts show there should be a heck of a lot of silvers out there. We’re also just getting into the fall Chinook run now with more of these big ol’ hawgs starting to show up in the ocean, bays and rivers. Tuna fishing has been good when boats are able to reach the schools, but the stiff winds and choppy seas this time of year often make it tough to get 30-plus miles offshore and back safely. It looks like halibut will be limited to the near-shore fishery for the rest of 2014 (see Halibut below). Crabbing has been generally good with limits some days but lousy pot-pulls on others. And, the rivers are producing decent catches of cutthroat trout, summer steelhead and even a few nice Chinook these days. “You get a line and I’ll get a pole…”

Salmon River: Cutthroat trout fishing is fair to good from tidewater through the mainstem with sea-run cutthroat found in the lower portion of the river. Use of bait is not allowed above the head of tide but small spinners, spoons or fly fishing can be very productive. Some fall Chinook are starting to move in on the high tides with the best success this time of year coming from the lower bay up to the Highway 101 bridge.

Siletz River: Fall Chinook fishing is starting to pick up in the lower to middle sections of tidewater. Trolling spinners of herring seems to be producing the best results at this time. Look to fish early in the morning and during the incoming tide through high slack. Summer steelhead fishing remains slow to fair. The best chance to hook into a feisty steelhead is in the early mornings from Moonshine Park up to the deadline. Using small spinners, jigs, or pieces of bait can be effective during these low clear flows. The cutthroat trout fishery is fair to good with sea-run cutthroat being found throughout tidewater and into the middle and lower sections of the river. Using small presentations such as spinners, jigs under a bobber, or fly fishing can produce good results.

Yaquina River: We’re starting to see some early returning fall Chinook. The Yaquina is producing some catches between River Bend and the Toledo Airport boat ramp. Trolling herring or large spinners on the incoming tide can be fruitful. The Yaquina River Basin and many tributaries have good cutthroat trout fishing now with the sea-run cutthroat fishery picking up in the upper tidewater reach. Using small lures or fly fishing can be very productive as well as trolling near the head of tide. Use of bait is not allowed above tidewater until September 1st.

Alsea River: A small number of Chinook salmon are starting to enter the river. Trolling spinners of herring in the lower portion of the bay will give you the best results early in the season. Sea-run cutthroat trout can be found in tidewater and in the lower to middle section of the mainstem. Resident cutthroat are spread throughout the basin. The Alsea has many opportunities for bank fishing along Highway 34 as well as some good riverside camping options. Use of bait is not allowed above the head of tide until September 1st. However, using small lures such as spinners, spoons, jigs or crank baits can be very effective. Fly-fishing dry flies, nymphs, or streamers can also produce well.

Central Coast Lakes: Rainbow fishing tends to be slow during the summer months as warm water temperatures can put trout off the bite. Fish early in the morning or near cool water zones until water temperatures start to cool off in the fall.
