THE ANGLER’S LOG: Floating a few ideas for your personal watercraft needs
With salmon season fading into the sunset, winter steelheading still a few weeks off ... and the holidays looming, I thought a decision on a couple of types of personal float craft would be timely. So over the next two editions of the Anglers Log and starting with this edition, I’ll focus on two different types of personal fishing-specific watercraft. One excels on lakes, bays, slow-moving rivers and even in the ocean. The second is best for floating rivers, will handle moderate whitewater and can carry enough gear for a multiple-day river-fishing expedition ...

A good sign: CHS gets a welcome boost
It’s too bad the fancy new scoreboard at Creswell High School wasn’t able to debut with a big winning splash, as the Bulldogs – trying to go to state for the first time in a decade – lost a one-point thriller to Monroe. Still, Friday, Oct. 29 was a proud day for the school. The football team may have been on the wrong side of a 30-29 verdict, but the Bulldogs took some major strides this season. The athletic program keeps moving forward, on and off the field, and the Markley Field scoreboard – paid for in full by the Creswell High Boosters Club – is just the latest shining example of that.

The exceptionally high tides recorded along the Oregon coast last weekend – referred to as “King Tides” – are nothing new.

But with the development of global climate change and sea-level rise has pushed this annual tidal event to the forefront of many coastal communities.
