The popular steelhead rivers in the Coos Basin have been low, clear due to  no significant rainfall in the last month. Steelhead fishing has been slow but anglers are still catching a few new bright hatchery steelhead. Even in this low clear water, fish are moving through into the deeper pools and waiting for the next rain. There is bank access at the Millicoma Interpretive Center on the West Fork, Nesika Park on the East Fork Millicoma and for 7 miles along the South Fork Coos rivers. Anglers wanting to fish the South Fork Coos River above tidewater will need a fishing access permit from Weyerhaeuser.

Trout fishing in streams and rivers reopen May 22.
