Conditions for crabbing and rockfish and lingcod fishing in Coos Bay should improve as the mud and heavy freshwater runoff from recent storms had subsided. Using a jig with a twister tail has been a great bait for catching rockfish. Anglers have been catching lingcod with a herring floated under a bobber. 

Trout fishing in streams and rivers opened on May 22, while lakes in the basin are open year-round. Try cutthroat trout fishing on streams of the Elliott State Forest.

Marine perch species are available around rocks, riprap, pilings, and docks at this time of year.
