Anglers are still catching decent numbers of rockfish around the jetties in the lower Coos Bay estuary. Best fishing is typically near slack tides. A jig fished with a twister tail trailer is always a good option to catch bottomfish. The daily general marine fish bag limit is 5 fish for the 2022 season with a 1-fish sub-bag limit for China and copper rockfish combined. 

Trout fishing in streams and rivers opened on May 22. Anglers are restricted to using artificial flies and lures in rivers and streams above tidewater. Rain over the past weekend had all river and stream levels high and muddy. Water levels are currently dropping and should be fishable on or before the weekend.
