Streams and rivers are open to trout fishing. Trout fishing in streams and rivers is slow to due to low water conditions. Trout anglers can now use bait in all streams when fishing for trout in all streams that are open to fishing. The daily limit for trout in streams is 2 fish per day and they must be 8-inches or longer.

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. Salmon anglers had mixed results this past week trolling from the BLM boat ramp up to Chandler Bridge. A few more California halibut were also caught this past weekend by salmon anglers fishing near the airport. The Coos Basin Salmon Derby will be happening Sept. 8-9. Anglers can buy tickets tickets to fish in the derby that day at the California and Eastside boat ramps.

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 is no longer allowed for the rest of the year. Fishing for rockfish and greenling inside Coos Bay near the north jetty and other submerged rock structures has been spotty this past week with good fishing one day and poor fishing the next.
