Smallmouth bass are becoming active throughout the South Fork, Middle Fork and mainstem Coquille river. Smallmouth will bite on variety of lures like crawdad crankbaits, spinners and jigs. There are no daily bag limits or length limits on bass in the Coquille River.

Anglers fishing in the lower portions of the Coquille River are starting to catch striped bass. Anglers are using a variety of techniques to catch striped bass, some are plunking on the bottom with anchovies while other anglers are casting crankbaits. There are no daily bag limits or length limits on striped bass.   

Trout fishing in streams and rivers is open 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 exception that the entire South Fork Coquille below boundary of the US Forest Service property above Powers Falls is open to the use of bait. With the recent hot weather, fishing will be best in the mornings and late evenings.
