Be sure to CHECK the regulations! Latest reports from Winchester to Coos Bay ports are saying the Coho bite is on and limits within 2 hours have been the norm lately. Apparently these fish are the ones that are migrating north to the Columbia that were previously producing a good bite at Brookings.

The Rogue Bay has been on and off for Chinook. Winds for the upcoming weekend are going to make any ocean fishing challenging.

Andy from Brookings Fishing Charters (541-813-1082) reports that the salmon bite has slowed some as the first bunch of fish are making their way North and are currently biting well out of ports from Coos Bay up to Yaquina Bay. Winds have made the ocean a bit rough, but fishable and this weekend’s outlook isn’t good with some gale warnings out of Brookings.. Rock fish angling has been decent and salmon fishing has been okay close to the buoys when able to get out. Earlier this week Andy heard of a nice halibut caught out of Brookings, but still not much pressure due to the winds.

Tony from Tony from Tony’s Crab Shack in Bandon (541-347-2875) said that Coho fishing out of Winchester Bay is continuing to be awesome!

Bradley Lake – Largemouth bass can be found in shallower water near weed lines or submerged trees during low light periods of the day. On bright, sunny days most largemouth bass will move to deeper water or in shadows of cover.

Tenmile Lakes– The lake water temperatures has increased to lower 70s where most largemouth bass have moved to their summer locations.

Surf perch- Perch fishing is still decent in the mouths and jetties of the Umpqua, Coquille! Boats targeting these delicious and fun to catch fish are anchoring on the inside of a jetty.

Applegate reservoir– early birds will catch trout before noon in at least 30′ of water. Power bait just off the bottom or trolling worms will catch fish. With increased pressure, fish early to avoid late day crowds and wind.

Diamond Lake-Trout fishing has slowed a bit but has been producing some very nice 16″-24″trout this year.

CHETCO RIVER – Trout fishing is open, but with low and warming water conditions, anglers will want to look for cooler water in deeper pools and near tributary mouths.

COQUILLE RIVER BASIN – Boat anglers are still catching a few shad on the mainstem Coquille River near the town of Coquille. Anglers have been catching striped bass in the upper end of tidewater all the way downstream to Riverton and are caught in low light conditions or in the dark.

Salmon fishing in the Rogue Bay has produced sporadic “hot then not” days. Catches lately have reduced to 18-23 fish/ day.

UMPQUA RIVER System– Shad on the Coquille is winding down now. Shad darts (jigs) and flicker spinner spoons are the ticket for great catching on light outfits.
