Trout fishing is open through Oct. 31. Artificial flies, lures and bait may be used. The daily limit is 2 fish with an 8-inch minimum length. Rainbow trout over 16-inches are considered steelhead.

Chinook salmon and steelhead season is open from the river mouth to Nook Creek through Dec. 31. Anglers are picking up a few Chinook in the estuary below the Hwy 101 bridge. However due to low and warm water conditions above tidewater, fishing in this part of the river doesn’t typically start for another few weeks. Anglers are encouraged to drop hatchery fish snouts in the kiosk at the Port of Brookings cleaning station (instructions on how to remove and package snouts is available at the kiosk). Fishing is restricted to fly- fishing or bobber fishing from river mile 2.2 through to Nook Creek from Sept. 1 through Nov. 3. Please see the southwest zone regulation exceptions in the ODFW Sport Fishing Regulations book for more details.
