Coquille River Fish Report for 10-12-2022
Anglers have been catching striped bass in the lower Coquille River
Coquille River - Coquille, OR (Coos County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Smallmouth bass fishing has slowed down but bass can still be caught in the deeper pools of the South Fork Coquille, lower Middle Fork Coquille, and upper mainstem Coquille. Anglers are having the best luck catching smallmouth bass on worms but lures like a crawdad crankbait have been working also. Bass anglers will want to get away from the easy access points for better fishing and target deeper holes with the warmer weather.
A temporary regulation May 22 allows anglers in Coquille River system to use spears and spear guns to harvest smallmouth bass ends on Oct. 31. This unique fishing opportunity is one of many efforts to reduce the impact of illegally introduced bass on Chinook populations.
Traditional rod and reel anglers can also use bait throughout the river system.
Anglers have been catching striped bass in the lower Coquille River from Rocky Point boat ramp up to Riverton. Some anglers are drifting in the current and using swimbaits while other anglers are anchoring along the shoreline and using bait fished along the bottom.
All salmon fishing is closed in the Coquille Basin for the remainder of the year due to very poor returns of wild Chinook.
Trout fishing in streams and rivers is open until Oct. 31.
