Full Report: COOS RIVER BASIN: Trout season is open in the Coos Basin rivers. Anglers should fish the smaller streams which should have cooler water temperatures. Small spinners, small jigs, and flies all work well to catch trout. In streams and rivers above the head of tide, anglers are restricted to use artificial flies and lures until Sept. 1. The daily limit of trout in streams is 2 fish over 8 inches.

Salmon anglers have been occasionally picking up a few Chinook salmon on the Coos Bay bar. The fishing has not been consistent yet but should be getting better in the next month.

Sturgeon fishing is open in the Coos Basin for catch and release only on any size sturgeon.

Crabbing in Coos Bay has improved with some boat crabbers picking up limits. The best crabbing has been near the jetties but crabbers are getting legal size crab all the way up to the BLM Boat Ramp.

Clamming is excellent during low tides near Charleston, off Cape Arago Highway, and Clam Island. There are also good places to dig clams even on positive low tides in Coos Bay.

Before any shellfish harvest trip, make sure to check the Oregon Department of Agriculture website for any updates.
