Coquille River Basin Fishing Report

Coquille River - Coquille, OR (Coos County)

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.

Winter steelhead should start showing up in the mainstem Coquille River later this month. Most anglers fishing the mainstem Coquille will plunk with a spin-n-glo and bait like salmon eggs or sand shrimp.
