Steelhead Should be Entering the Rivers with the Next Big Rain
Coos River - Coos Bay, OR (Coos County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
There has not been enough rain to get steelhead moving up the rivers yet. Steelhead should be entering the rivers with the next big rain. Steelhead anglers wanting to fish the South Fork Coos River will need to purchase a Dellwood Fishing Permit from the Weyerhaeuser website.
Recreational fishing for bottomfish is open in the ocean along with bays and estuaries. The daily bag limit for marine fish is back to 5 plus 2 lingcod. The cabezon retention is closed for the rest of the year.
Trout fishing in streams and rivers will reopen May 22, 2019.
