Anglers have been catching a few rockfish in the lower Coos Bay estuary while fishing along the jetty and submerged rock structures. The recent late morning/afternoon winds can make it difficult to fish on the estuary. The daily bag limit for marine fish is 5 of which only one can be a copper, quillback or China rockfish. Anglers are also allowed 2 lingcod per day. The harvest of cabezon will not open until July 1.

Trout fishing in streams and riverisopen as of May 22. Anglers fishing in streams and rivers above tidewater are restricted to us flies and lures through the end of August. With the recent hot weather, fishing will be best in the mornings and late evenings
