LAKESIDE — A small, blue, home-built airplane with two people aboard crashed early Sunday afternoon in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The two-seat, highwinged aircraft lost power shortly after takeoff just

north of Lakeside and near Eel Lake Campground, according to a Coos County Sheriff’s Office press release. The pilot, 53-year-old Ron Schick of North Bend, tried to land the plane on a flat part of the dunes, but did not have enough power,

Weekly news from the Heart of the Dunes

Police seek information on rash of burglaries

Contributed photo by Rich Burkholder

An experimental two-seater airplane lies wrecked in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area on Sunday following a crash that injured one of the occupants.

No reports of arrests follow a rash of burglaries in Reedsport on Nov. 13 and 14. Some of the burglaries occurred at local churches. Interim Police Chief Sgt. Tom Beck sent out a news release that the department had taken several burglary reports. It appears churches were

the target. For the sake of the investigation, Beck did not reveal many details of the burglaries, but is asking the public for any information regarding the crimes. He did say entry was forced into the buildings through concealed doorways.

Docs in talks with LUH BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post

When Lower Umpqua Hospital merged with Dunes Family Health Care this summer, the four partner doctors with Dunes signed agreements to remain at the clinic for at least three months. Those three months are over. Dr. Janet Patin has signed a contract to remain. Dr. Robert Law has left the clinic to return to his hometown of Astoria. The other two doctors are in negotiations to remain at the clinic. Sandra Reese is administrator of Lower Umpqua Hospital. “We’ve extended the professional services agreements with Drs. Harris and

Petrofes, while we continue negotiations,” Reese said. “We have not yet reached an agreement and their old professional services agreement expired.” Dr. Dale Harris and Dr. Michelle Petrofes are married. They joined Dunes Family Health Care in 1986. The hospital board met in executive session on Nov. 4 to consider extending the contract for a month while both sides continue to negotiate. Dr. Rio Lion is also a doctor at the clinic. Rebecca Gray is a nurse practitioner. Lion is the medical director of the hospital.

Meet the candidates BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post

Three candidates for Reedsport police chief were in the city on Nov. 12, to meet with three interview boards and City Manager Jonathan Wright. The three, Duane Wisehart of Montana, Tom Beck of Reedsport and Rich Rowe of California, are hop-

Tom Beck — 17 years on city’s force By Steve Lindsley, The Umpqua Post

Kitty Roden, of Kitty’s Kitchen is Christmas Forever, stands with the Disney-themed Christmas tree she created as a fundraiser for Christmas in July. The tree will be raffled off at a spaghetti feed fundraiser Thursday night at the Eagles Lodge in Reedsport.

Tom Beck is a very familiar face to the Reedsport community. He has been with the Reedsport Police Department for 17 years and is currently a patrol sergeant and interim chief. He was named interim chief immediately after the unexpected death of Chief Mark Fandry in July. Beck was named a patrol

ing to take over the position which came open with the July death of Chief Mark Fandry. The application process began in August and will continue as Wright considers the three candidates. The Nov. 12 process concluded that night with a “meet and greet” at the Umpqua Discovery Center. Beck is the interim chief. He was

sergeant in 2006. His history with the department began after he was named a reserve officer in Reedsport in 1996.He was working at what is now Ace Hardware.He was hired in 1998 to a fulltime dispatch position and also remained a reserve officer with the department.He was hired to a fulltime patrol position in 1999. He said applying for the chief’s position was a natural progression in his career. “I think, with 17 years of experience, I have what it’s going to take to lead the department,” he said. “It’s

named almost immediately after Fandrey died of a heart attack in July. He is also the department’s duty sergeant. Rowe is the undersheriff of Dawson County, Mont. Wisehart is a lieutenant with the Hemet (Calif.) Police Department. The Umpqua Post interviewed each candidate by phone. The order of the stories was chosen at random.

Rich Rowe — Current county undersheriff

SEE BECK, PAGE A8

Rich Rowe has plenty of law enforcement experience. He is currently the undersheriff of Dawson County, Mont., a position he’s held for eight years. Prior to that, he was with the Glendive (Mont.) Police Department, where served nearly 13 years as a street patrolman and a school resource officer. He also was in the U.S.

cer, obviously, in the beginning stages,” he remembered. “I was a police motorcycle officer, traffic enforcement officer for about five years. I worked detectives for a couple of years. I was a patrol corporal and a patrol sergeant. I then worked internal affairs as a sergeant and as a lieutenant. I was promoted as a lieutenant in 2007.” He worked as a patrol lieutenant, served as a lieutenant in charge of records, volunteers and dispatch and, for the last

three years, has been in charge of investigations. “In investigations, I have a gang task force and a parole task force, as well as my regular detectives duties,” he said. “I also have the crime scene and evidence function of the department.” As might be expected the city of Hemet is a lot larger than Reedsport. The 2010 census listed the population at 78,657. He said of his decision to apply for the Reedsport position,

Kitty’s Christmas tree to raise funds for ‘Christmas in July’ Duane Wisehart — In charge of investigations Christmas is still a month away, but a Christmas tree is already decorated and ready to give away. Kitty Roden, of Kitty’s Kitchen is Christmas Forever, had decorated the tree with a Disney theme and the tree will be raffled off on Thursday, Nov. 21, at the Christmas in July spaghetti feed at the Reedsport Eagles Lodge. Roden said she’s been collected the ornaments and stuffed animals for years. Why part with them? “Because I believe in

Christmas so much, and what it represents ... and I couldn’t think of a better organization for it to go to than Christmas in July,” She said. She’s donating the tree, lights, all the stuffed animals and other decorations under the tree to the lucky winner. The actual tree should last a long time. “It’s an artificial tree” she said. “So, somebody can use it for years and years.”

Duane Wisehart can boast of a long career in law enforcement. He was in the Marines for four years as a military policeman and moved to a city police force in Southern California. Wisehart has been with the Hemet, (Calif.) Police Department for the past 27 years. Currently, he is a lieutenant for the department with a variety of duties. He has held a lot of positions in the department as he moved up the ladder. “I’ve been a patrol offiSEE CHRISTMAS, PAGE A6

Glendive, he said, is similar to Reedsport. “It’s roughly the same size as Reedsport,” he said. “A lot of very similar issues with the downtown areas and the types of problems that we’re facing.

RCCS seeks input for charter update

The Reedsport Charter School board, staff, administration and the public are in a process to determine what direction the school will take, as its charter expires next year.

goal of graduation, cultivating an atmosphere of mutual respect, encouraging connections with the community and more. Some of the “strategic goals” indicated by the draft include evaluating continuation of the charter school, obtaining staff commitment and co-development, engaging the community and defining personalized education.” Zetzsche indicated it was just a draft and the process continues. She said meetings have included the board, the staff, the Reedsport School Board and district administration. The work group will meet with RCCS staff on Friday to continue the discussion. “We feel like it’s essential to have the staff involved,” she said. “We wanted them from the very beginning but we’re going to them now because we haven’t all been able to get together. We really want to have a conversation with them about what the emphasis of the charter school should be.” Zetzsche says she hopes the work group can have a presentation for the Reedsport School Board meeting in February. The Charter School Board and Reedsport School Board are separate entities. The big question is what kind of charter school Reedsport should be, if it remains a charter school. “That is the question,” Zetzsche said. “I think it’s still premature to say that. That will be, certainly, a huge part of the conversation on Friday with the staff. She said some direction has come out of the four work sessions. “What our first four work sessions seemed to reveal,” she said, “were that we really want to focus on personalized learning.” She said there is a chance that, after the process is over there won’t be a charter school. “That’s part of the discussion,” she said. Zetzsche has been the chair of the charter school board since its inception. She said she’s heard from all sides after the charter was signed in 2009. “I’ve heard mixed comments,” she admitted. “I think there’s still some confusion in the community about what it means for us to be a charter school because we did not have one easily-articulated focus. As you said, many charter schools are Japanese immersion, or something like that. Ours was, from its start, we said it was a three-legged stool. We had three emphases ... one was community connection, the second was personalized education and the third was a technologyinfused curriculum.” She said having three purposes made explaining the school a little tougher. She said Superintendent Jim Thomas will be a big help during the discussions, although he inherited the charter school when he was hired in 2012. “He has a lot of ideas about charter schools, because he’s been involved, in the past, with other charter schools,” she said. She said Thomas has been at almost all the work sessions. Zetzsche says there will be public sessions to discuss the charter. “I think after the conversation with the staff,” she said. “Certainly, they can come to any of the meetings or the work sessions. We’ve also had members of the public at our work sessions. They’re welcome to be involved and to give their input, also.” Zetzsche was matter of fact when asked if she’s excited about renewing the school’s charter. “Yes,” she said. The next work session, aside from the meeting with staff, has not been set.

Carlin Reed Williams April 10, 1923 - Oct. 5, 2013

Carlin R. Williams, 90, of McMinnville passed away Oct. 5, 2013, at Rock of Ages in McMinnville. He was born April 10, 1923, in Marion Township, Noble County in Ohio to Harry and Gertrude Williams. Carlin is survived by his wife, Vernell, whom he married Feb. 18, 1956; and their son, Ken Williams of Milwaukie. Carlin served in World War II in the Signal Corps and was stationed in several places throughout the U.S., as well as in the Pacific. When the war was over, he was hired by the United States Information Agency Voice of America and was stationed in Hawaii for 13 years, Baguio, Philippines, for four years and Washington, D.C., for five years. His last four years were spent in Okinawa, Japan, where he retired at the age of 50. After retirement, Carlin and Vernell bought a home in the country outside Coburg, where they stayed for four years before making their home in Reedsport. Here they built a house on Crestview Drive and resided for the next 30 years. When ill health forced them to relocate, they purchased a residence at Rock of Ages in McMinnville. During his time in Reedsport, Carlin became active in local politics. He also was an avid ham radio operator and built a 40-foot tower in the center of his prized vegetable garden. He enjoyed gardening and sharing the fruits of his labor with friends and neighbors. Some of the organizations Carlin was involved with in Reedsport were Central

Following the story I had to scramble, Sunday, after hearing the tap out of police, fire and ambulance of a plane down somewhere in the dunes. The original call was for the Lakeside area. I grabbed the scanner from my Reedsport desk and headed out. As I was traveling, I heard the report of the plane in the Eel Lake area. That’s where I headed as I notified the newsroom of The World, our mothership, that there was a possible plane crash. I got to the Eel Lake campground just in time to see the emergency

program has had its times of financial struggle, but each time concerned citizens have rallied to keep the pool open and the swimming lessons going. This year financial shortfalls at the school district level were going to cause cuts to the fifth- and sixth-grade lessons, so Reedsport Education Enrichment Foundation stepped in to sponsor those lessons, including the fully clothed survival swim in the fifth grade that all the students look forward to. Highland Pool is one of the very few public pools still open in our neighboring communities, and families come from far up and down the coast to swim here. Knox, who calls himself “a shameless promoter” of the pool, is determined to continue keeping the doors open six days a week for lap swims, physical therapy, Aquasize, public swim, and swimming lessons, as well as the numerous private parties that rent the pool for $30 an hour. During his twelve-year tenure as the pool manager, he and his staff have transformed the pool’s institutional cinder block design into a riot of colorful seascape murals. “That’s always the first thing visitors comment on,” he says. Right now he’s scheming with the Chamber of Commerce to revive a communitywide jugboat race with boats made out of empty plastic milk jugs. “It’ll be sometime in the dead of winter, maybe February or March. We’ll have a cheesy trophy for the winner, and we’ll pack this place out. It’ll be awesome!” Knox promises. Most importantly, if those jugboats don’t float, we know their community and student skippers will be able to swim confidently to safety, thanks to a solid life-saving foundation of six decades of swimming lessons at Highland Pool.

what you’ve been saving it for. Technically you don’t even have to wear the thing to enter the contest but I think wearing it is a big part of the ugly. I also think there should be extra points for anything plaid or with kittens on it but I’m not in charge. I hear there are still booth spaces available, but better hurry. The felt and fudge, scarves and salt water taffy are all ready to load in there, so get on the phone or email now if you’re planning to take part.

She pointed to a couple of the ornaments ... including Mickey and Minnie on a sled. “These I bought when I was in Disney World maybe 15 years ago,” She said. “Some of these, you can tell from the features, don’t look like the modern-day By Steve Lindsley, The Umpqua Post

Mickey. He’s become much more handsome in later years. Roden speaks lovingly of the tree and the stuffed animals. Will she miss them? “Of course,” she laughed. She says ticket sales are going well and some folks already have the tree going into their homes. “Some ladies were here, yesterday,” she said. “I said, ‘May I help you?’ They said, ‘We just came to visit our tree.’ I hope it brings lots of joy to a happy family here in our community.” Those who want a shot at the tree can buy tickets at her Winchester Bay shop and tickets will also be sold on the night of the spaghetti feed at the Eagles Lodge.

Timber’s place in the South Coast economy BY THOMAS HOESLY The closure of the American Bridge Company’s manufacturing facility in Reedsport has led to another round of soul-searching about the region’s economic future. Recent reporting on the South Coast’s gloomy outlook identified many of the challenges of doing business in small towns that are wedged between the mountains and the sea. Some of these challenges are difficult to overcome, but the South Coast still has tremendous assets for retaining businesses, luring new companies and creating family-wage jobs. In addition to improving port facilities and reconnecting rail lines, the South Coast should again look to our forests to bring prosperity back to our communities. It’s no coincidence the spotted owl crisis of the early 1990s was the catalyst of the South Coast’s economic struggles and, as The World describes it, the “decline” of the regional timber industry. The simultaneous decline in timber harvests on federal lands decimated our forest products infrastructure and put thousands of coastal residents out of work. Where timber once served as an economic powerhouse for the South Coast, today just a handful of mills remain. Our region is home to some of the most abundant and renew-

able natural resources in the world, yet too many of our citizens live in poverty.Meanwhile, our federal forests are becoming overstocked and spotted owl populations continue to decline due to competition from the barred owl. Congressman Peter DeFazio has described southwest Oregon as a “new Appalachia” that is riddled by chronic unemployment. He understands the challenges facing the South Coast and that solutions are desperately needed. Not only has Congressman DeFazio tirelessly worked to secure new investments in our ports and transportation infrastructure, he has led efforts to pass legislation to restore middle-class jobs in the woods. He helped write the bipartisan O&C Trust, Conservation and Jobs plan, a balanced solution that protects environmental treasures while increasing sustainable timber harvests on federal land. Specifically, the O&C Trust legislation provides certain and adequate harvests while creating thousands of new family-wage jobs and generating new economy activity to support local businesses.As federal timber payments continue to dwindle, the plan would generate sufficient revenues for local governments while assuring conservation-based management and the first-ever fed-

eral protection for old growth forests. Not only would active management support our timber and biomass employers, improving forest health would also support our recreation and outdoor industries. The U.S. House approved the legislation in September and is now awaiting action in the Senate. As Chair of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Sen. Ron Wyden has committed to addressing the economic and environmental problems in southwest Oregon’s federal forests. We should encourage him to pass the bipartisan O&C legislation or offer other solutions that provide the same level of certainty and economic benefits. It’s highly unlikely that we will return to peak historic harvest levels, but restoring regional timber supplies is a key solution for putting the South Coast’s economy back on track. Our elected leaders and economic development officials should continue efforts to bring in new businesses and diversify the economy, but we shouldn’t ignore one of our greatest assets that can help us achieve a better future. Thomas Hoesly is logging manager with The Campbell Group LLC, a timberland investment firm based in Portland.

Protected bird lowers timber value PORTLAND (AP) — The discovery of a threatened bird in the Elliott Sate Forest in Coos County has drastically lowered the value of three tracts where logging is now in doubt. The Oregonian reports state appraisals dropped from $22 million to less than $4 million after a marbled murrelet was spotted last

summer by state surveyors and volunteers with the Coast Range Forest Watch, a conservation group that opposes the timber sale. The murrelet is a threatened seabird species that nests in large trees. The state uses timber revenue from the Elliott State Forest to fund public education.

Sorting salmon, life lessons BY CHELSEA DAVIS The Umpqua Post

COOS BAY — North Bend middleschoolers jumped into the salmon life cycle last week, helping sort, slice and squeeze the native fish. North Bend fifth-graders suited up Wednesday morning at Morgan Creek fish hatchery east of Coos Bay. After securing their waders and coats, the students climbed down into the chestdeep water armed with nets. Salmon thunked against their legs as they waded through the water before plunging their nets to the bottom of the pond. Some struggled as their nets emerged with one, two — once in a great while, five, as one boy boasted — salmon that they handed to Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program volunteers. The workers clubbed the salmon over the head and threw them onto the deck. “Female! I’ve got a female!” one boy shouted, unfazed as workers lined up the salmon and sliced their tails. Other students lugged the male salmon over to workers who squeezed their milt into plastic bags, which will later fertilize the females’ eggs. Five years ago, every kindergartner received a salmon egg, which they

named and followed as it grew. By the time they’re in fifth grade, it’s time to go to the fish hatchery to see the grown salmon and begin sorting them. This is the 32nd year the hatchery has done the program and now, said ODFW fish biologist Tom Rumreich, parents are volunteering who had participated in the same activity when they were in fifth grade. “If you guys remember, for the last four years you’ve had a living, breathing, growing salmon at your desk,” Rumreich told the room of squirming fifth-graders. But he gave a warning, asking them to repeat after him: “All salmon die after they spawn.” The kids needed to be prepared to see the salmon clubbed over the head before they were tossed onto the deck and sliced open. “It seems cruel but they’re at the end of their life,” he said. “It might sound sad, but it’s not the end of the story, it’s the beginning of another one. They put nutrients into the river system.” The salmon’s carcasses provide food for others, one boy said. They feed the insects which in turn feed young salmon, creating a circle of life. Those salmon that were not ready to

spawn were thrown over the crowder. “You’re an incredibly important part of this community project,” Rumreich told the students. “These salmon are caught in the ocean ... which pumps millions of dollars into the community.” A boy in the back row raised his hand: “How long do fish live?” Salmon can live up to seven or eight years and at that point weigh around 50 pounds, Rumreich said. Other salmon range from 2 years old (“jacks”) to 5 years old. But rockfish, Rumreich noted, can live up to 150 years. “Wow...” the boy whispered, wideeyed. A few students were hesitant after listening to Rumreich’s instructions. One soft-spoken boy asked if he had to get in the water. “You don’t have to get in the water, but you’ll want to get in the water,” Rumreich said. By the time the kids began putting on their waders and grabbing fish, no one was shy. They dove right into their assigned tasks and worked hard until it was time for lunch. Wednesday was the hatchery’s third day trying to find the bottom of the pond “and we still haven’t found it,” Rumreich said.

my hometown. I have a real sense of duty to this city. I just felt that this was the next step in my career.” Beck has worked for five police chiefs in his Reedsport career. He says he’s learned from each of them. Beck, 47, is married and he and his wife, Mary, have three grown children and two grandchildren. Even though he was a known quantity for the three interview committees and the city manager, who also conducted an interview, Beck went through the same process as the other two candidates for chief. He says he thought a lot about his answers. “I was thinking, at first, it was going to be a little easier for me because I knew everybody,” he said. “The different boards that we spoke to, I knew everybody

but, in the same respect, I was pretty nervous because you don’t know much to answer a question when it’s asked, because you’re making assumptions that people know about your history, since I’ve been part of this community for so long. You’re afraid you won’t answer a question completely because you’re making assumptions that people already know your background.” He says he answered the questions as if he was new to the area. “Making sure that I formulated good answers and took the expectation that people knew about me out,” he said. He said he enjoyed the “meet and greet” at the Umpqua Discovery Center on Nov. 12. “Shaking hands and talking with people is kind of a no-brainer for me,” he said. “You don’t have the ‘where are you from, how long have you worked in your other job?’ People have seen me in the community for so long it was a little easier for me.”

Reedsport’s volleyball team (with managers) poses with its second-place trophy at the Class 2A state tournament, including back row from left: Myles Fletcher, Hailee Abraham, Kaylynn Hixenbaugh, Mariah McGill, Julia Analco, Alyssa Aguirre and Isabel Lavigne; and front row: Shania Enfield, Bailey Tymchuk, Alicia Osorio, Ruby Cardoso, Gabby White, Kayla Doane and Jenna Corcoran.

Braves reflect on trophy run THE UMPQUA POST Reedsport’s volleyball team reached a new height this fall, with the Braves advancing to the state championship match before falling to Days Creek. The season also capped the most successful four-year run of any class of volleyball players in the school’s history, with the team winning the Sunset Conference title, advancing to the state tournament and bringing home a trophy every time. The squad included six seniors, who helped leave their mark on the program — Bailey Tymchuck, Ruby Cardoso, Alicia Osorio, Gabby White, Shania Enfield and Kayla Doane. Several of them reflected on their time in the program after the recent state tournament. “This season with my team has been an amazing time that I will never forget,” said White. “We made it to the finals at state for the first time ever and we made history at our school. I’m so proud of every girl on this team and I couldn’t have had a better year. “We are a family and we will be remembered.” Enfield referred to the journey the seniors took together during their careers. “I never thought after nine years of playing volleyball with my teammates our

I truly couldn’t have asked for a better group of girls to grow up with.” Osorio said the season was rewarding for the squad beyond just wins and losses. “There is no possible way for me to summarize the way I feel about this season,” she said. “The only important feeling that I want to say is how we ended up learning to function as a successful family. If it wasn’t for the support

we had for each other and dedication that we placed on ourselves, then I don’t believe we would have gotten this far.” Osorio said the most memorable moments for her were beating Glide and winning the league championship again, winning the McKenzie tournament and reaching the state championship game. Reedsport coach James Hixenbaugh said the season was made better because of the fan support

the Braves received. “I would like to thank all of Reedsport for all the support you have given the volleyball team,” he said. “Thanks to all who cheered us on at the games. We have the best crowd and it is fun to play in Reedsport. Thank you to all the students and the football team also who cheered us on. “It was a great season. I appreciate all the hard work my team has done throughout this season. Great job at state.”

Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife Fishing Report (Nov. 13) COOS COUNTY LAKES AND PONDS: Empire Lakes, Saunders Lake, and Powers Pond all were stocked last month with the fall “trophy” size trout. This was the last stocking of trout until spring. Trout anglers were having the best success fishing from a small boat or float tube in the middle of the lakes. Bank anglers are still catching a few trout using worms or PowerBait. LAKE MARIE: The lake was stocked with about 4,500 rainbow trout this year. Most anglers use PowerBait or worms. LOON LAKE: Loon Lake has been stocked with over 8,000 trout. The lake can also provide good fishing for crappie, bluegill and bass. Fishing is slow and both the BLM and resort’s boat ramps are closed. SMITH RIVER: Trout season in the Smith River basin closed Sept. 16. Check the regulations for gear and harvest restrictions for other fish. TENMILE BASIN: Bass fishing has been decent for anglers in Tenmile Lakes. Largemouth bass can be found in both shallow and deep water near weed lines and/or submerged logs. Five or six inch Senko’s are a good bait to use to catch bass in Tenmile Lakes. Anglers should also try to use crankbaits to catch bass. Yellow perch fishing has been very good in Tenmile Lakes recently. Anglers are catching lots of yellow perch fishing in water 20 feet or deeper. The best baits are jigs and/or night crawlers fished on or near the bottom. Some of the yellow perch being caught are very large (12 to 15 inches). Fishing for wild coho opened in Tenmile Lakes on Oct. 1. The daily bag limit is one wild coho adult per day day and five for the season. The wild coho season bag limits are in aggregate with all other wild coho fisheries in the NW and SW coastal basins (not including the ocean season). Anglers have reported a few coho have made their way into Tenmile Lakes. Fishing is usually best in the upper arms of the lakes. WINCHESTER BAY/UMPQUA RIVER: The mainstem Umpqua is closed to wild steelhead harvest, but remains open year-round for adipose fin-clipped steelhead. Wild coho can still be harvested from the mouth to the Scottsburg Bridge. The limit is 1 per day, 2 per year, in aggregate. So far just over 50 percent of the 3,000-fish quota has been caught. This week’s rain may help move both coho and steelhead. Bank anglers in Winchester Bay are still catching a few fall Chinook and coho. Bobber and eggs, shrimp or both is working well. Anglers are also using the traditional spinner. The Mainstem Umpqua is closed to trout fishing until the spring opener. MID COAST LAKES: The Siltcoos and Tahkenitch lakes wild coho fisheries are open for the season. The recent rain events and big tides series have moved a good portion of the run into the lakes. This time of year is typically the most productive. Anglers can have good success trolling or casting spinners, spoons or bass plugs near the lake outlets or the major lake tributaries. Anglers are reminded that the daily limit is 1 adult coho per day and 5 for the season in aggregate with the other lake and river coho fisheries. Trout stocking in the mid coast is done for the season and will start back up in February 2014. Many water bodies get stocked multiple times per season and can have a good number of carryover fish available to anglers with the fall and winter months still productive. Fishing for warm water species is slowing as lake temperatures are starting to drop but can still provide good opportunities. Largemouth bass, perch, bluegill and brown bullhead are the most common warm water fish. The Florence area offers the most opportunity along the mid coast such as Siltcoos, Tahkenitch, Woahink, Sutton, and Mercer lakes. SIUSLAW RIVER: The Chinook fishery has slowed down but recent rains and the big tide series has helped to move in some new fish. Many fish have already moved onto the spawning grounds. The wild coho fishery has also slowed but some more coho are expected to move in through the month. Casting or trolling spinners tends to produce the best results for coho. Anglers are advised to read the harvest regulations prior to fishing. Lake Creek is now open to both Chinook and coho angling as of Oct. 16. It will remain open through the end of November and the salmon fishing deadline is at Indian Creek.
