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. The daily bag limit for marine fish was recently reduced to 5. As of June 1, boat anglers are no longer able to retain China, copper and quillback rockfish. Anglers can still harvest 2 lingcod per day. 

Salmon anglers have hung up the salmon fishing gear in Coos Basin for the season. The first winter steelhead are typically caught around the week of Thanksgiving.  

Trout fishing in streams and rivers are now closed until May 22.
