Contributor Jeff Rome reports:

It was a hot 4th of July weekend as many people headed to the coast to beat the heat and were treated to some good catches on the Rogue Bay in Gold beach. As mentioned in my last report, Troy Whittaker of Troy’s Guide Service fished the bay with good success and thought it was only going to get better….and it did! If salmon anglers got on one of the boats from Brookings Fishing Charters (Brookings), Limits of Chinook and or Coho were had this week also. Well, look to be summer salmon fishing is in full swing… go get em!

Grants Pass Pro-guide Troy Whitaker of Troy’s Guide Service (541-761-0015) – Troy has been fishing the Rogue Bay in Gold Beach lately as the weather has been hot in the valley. Rogue River flows have reduced dramatically the last week and the water temp is 70+ degrees making the current Summer/ Fall Chinook that are starting to come into the bay will hold.

Andy Martin- Brookings Fishing Charters (541-813-1082)

Hatchery coho may be kept the entire season. Chinook (wild or hatchery) may be kept June 19-Aug 15. The daily limit is two salmon.

The season out of Crescent City and Eureka runs June 29-Aug. 1.

Andy reports that the salmon bite was “good” this week and is disappointing that the winds will be a big factor of whether or not his fleet will be able to get out this weekend. Chinook catches were at least 1 fish per rod with some Coho mixed in fishing in the 12′-20′ top zone with anchovy near the buoys in 100′ of water trolling anchovy. Consistent limits and coming in early was the norm to several of his boats this week.

The Coho bite that had slowed some as Andy suspects the schools of fish have migrated north towards Coos Bay had picked up. Wind chop could keep halibut and bottom fish anglers closer to shore

Surf Perch – Red-tail surf perch fishing is great along the Rogue sand bar using small sand crabs and or rock shrimp. If you’re wanting some great action and table fare, Andy recommends fishing for these can be very rewarding.

Tony from Tony’s Crab Shack in Bandon- 541-347-2875

Tony said that Coho fishing out of Winchester Bay was “off the hook” earlier this week with one charter boat kept 8 fish out of 22 caught within 2 hours!

Speaking of crabbing, people crabbing in Winchester, Charleston, Coos and Bandon systems are getting some keepers and are still hard shells.

Galesville Reservoir– Is providing some good early morning catches before all the boat traffic. Fish are down deeper toward the dam.

Diamond Lake-Trout fishing has been good in the mornings and late evenings which has been producing some very nice 16″-24″trout this year. Try switching between bait and lures if one method isn’t producing.

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.

Springer fishing in the Rogue Bay produced a decent bite among the boats targeting Chinook earlier this week.

Be sure to CHECK the regulations!
