From Aug. 1 through Sept. 30 salmon anglers with a two-rod validation will be able to use rods while fishing for Chinook salmon and hatchery coho salmon in Coos Bay. A few anglers have been trolling for salmon in the lower portion of the estuary. The best Chinook salmon fishing will occur in late August and September.

Recreational fishing for bottomfish is open in the ocean along with bays and estuaries. The daily bag limit for marine fish is 4 plus 2 lingcod. The retention of cabezon started on July 1 with a 1-fish sub-bag limit. Anglers have reported catching rockfish and greenling inside Coos Bay near the north jetty and other submerged rock structures.
