Anglers can catch rockfish around the jetties in the lower Coos Bay

Coos River - Coos Bay, OR (Coos County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Anglers can catch 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 was reduced to 4 fish with no retention of China, copper, quillback rockfish along with no retention of cabezon.

The wild coho fishery in the Coos Basin closed on Oct. 15. Chinook fishing has been slow and most of the salmon have moved upriver to the spawning areas

From July 1 – Dec. 31, salmon anglers are only allowed one wild Chinook for the season in the Coos Basin. The area open for salmon fishing, and the harvest of hatchery Chinook is per permanent regulations. 

Trout fishing in streams and rivers is open until Oct. 31.
