Coquille River Fishing Report Location: Coquille River by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Streams and rivers are now closed to trout fishing until next spring.
The steelhead rivers in the Coquille Basin continue to run low and clear. Steelhead anglers have been plunking in the tidewater sections of the Coquille River near the town of Coquille in hopes of the first returning winter steelhead. Anglers fishing the South Fork Coquille have reported catching winter steelhead. In the Coquille Basin 1 additional hatchery steelhead may be retained per day for a total aggregate of 3 adult fish harvested daily.
Beginning Jan. 1, anglers will have the opportunity to harvest 1 wild steelhead per day, 3 for the season from the East Fork Coquille River. The open area for steelhead fishing in the East Fork remains the same as in past years. These regulations are listed in the 2018 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations booklet.
Crabbing and clamming updates can now be found in the Crabbing and Clamming section of the Recreation Report.
