by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Trout fishing in streams is now closed until May 22, 2017.

Chinook salmon fishing has been slow in the Coquille Basin. With the recent rains the majority of the salmon have moved out of tidewater and into the rivers. There is no season this year for wild coho in the Coquille but anglers may harvest hatchery coho.

With the recent rains, fishing for smallmouth bass will be slow with the high dirty water.

Crabbing is slow on the lower Coquille.
