Bass and bluegill are slowing down dramatically

Cooper Creek Reservoir - Sutherlin, OR (Douglas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Bass and bluegill are slowing down dramatically. The salmon/steelhead smolts stocked earlier this year are likely to be a good bite and around legal size now.

Beginning in 2016, Cooper has been stocked with coho and Chinook salmon juveniles. These are often mistaken for kokanee. Anglers may retain up to 5 salmon juveniles in the reservoir as part of their daily trout bag limit. Please remember to release salmon and trout less than 8 inches.
