Coquille River Fish Report for 6-23-2022
River levels are dropping quickly
Coquille River - Coquille, OR (Coos County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
River levels are dropping quickly and water clarity should be improving in the mainstem and lower portion of the main forks of the river. A temporary regulation started on May 22 allowing anglers in Coquille River system to use spears and spear guns to harvest smallmouth bass. Traditional rod and reel anglers can also use bait throughout the river system. This unique fishing opportunity is one of many efforts to reduce the impact of illegally introduced bass on Chinook populations.
Water temperatures will be warming up with the seven-day forecast of warm, sunny days. Smallmouth bass will become more active throughout the river.
Anglers have reported catching shad in the mainstem Coquille River.
Trout fishing in streams and rivers reopened on May 22.
