A few striped bass have been caught on the lower Coquille River by anglers trolling for salmon.

The smallmouth bass bite is also good at this time in the mainstem and South Fork Coquille rivers. Smallmouth bass will bite on worms, jigs with a twister tail, crankbaits, and small spinners.

Salmon anglers had decent catches of Chinook salmon trolling around Bullards Beach and Riverton Boat Ramp this past week. Overall, salmon fishing has been slow.

Temporary wild fall Chinook salmon regulations started on Aug. 1. Salmon anglers in the Coquille Basin will only be able to harvest 1 wild Chinook per day. There is a season aggregate of 5 wild Chinook from all waters from Coos Basin, Coquille Basin, Sixes River, and Elk River, but no more than 2 adult Chinook salmon may be harvested from the Coquille Basin.  The Coquille River will be closed to salmon fishing upstream of Sturdivant Park Bridge (Highway 42S Bridge). 

Trout fishing in streams and rivers remain open through Oct. 31. Anglers may now use bait through the end of the trout season.
