Trout fishing in streams is open until Oct. 31. Fishing with bait is now allowed in streams above tidewater.

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.

Fishing for smallmouth bass has been good in the mainstem and South Fork Coquille. Jigs, crawdad crankbaits, and nightcrawlers will all work to catch smallmouth bass.

Crabbing has been decent for boat crabbers across from Bandon in the lower Coquille.
