Tenmile Lakes Fishing Report

Tenmile Lakes - Lakeside, OR (Coos County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

As water temperatures continue to decrease largemouth bass will transition to wintering areas. There are some largemouth bass still hanging out in the shallower water, but many bass have moved out to deeper water along points and boat houses. Anglers will want to fish points going into deep water using crankbaits, plastic worms or jigs. If bass are not hitting fast moving baits, try switching over to a drop shot or slow down your presentation.

Yellow perch will be transitioning away from weedlines and into deeper holes and mud flats. Fishing worms or small jigs near the bottom is very effective for catching yellow perch. If you are fishing an area for 10-15 minutes without a bite, it’s time to move to a new location.       

Trout fishing in rivers and streams is open through Oct. 31. Starting Sept. 1 anglers can use bait in rivers and streams above tidewater.
