Trout Fishing in Streams Will Open on May 22

Coos River - Coos Bay, OR (Coos County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Boat and bank anglers (on the jetty) are still catching rockfish inside lower Coos Bay. Smaller jigs with a twister tail or 1-ounce jigging spoons have been working to catch rockfish. Anglers can also catch striped surfperch fishing sand shrimp near the jetties. The daily bag limit for marine fish was recently reduced to 5, which includes a one fish sub-bag limit for China, copper and quillback rockfish. Anglers can still harvest 2 lingcod per day.  

Trout fishing in streams and rivers opens on May 22. River levels are currently very low for this time of the year.
