FISHING THE COQUILLE RIVER
COQUILLE RIVER FISHING GUIDE.
The Coquille river system in Southwest Oregon is about 36 miles and offers world class winter steelhead, fall chinook and Coho salmon fishing. I mainly fish the South Fork of the Coquille river for winter steelhead and the main Coquille for fall chinook. The Coquille river is one of my favorite rivers to fish because of its beautiful landscape and relaxing fishing experience. The Coquille weaves its way through the Southern Oregon Coastal Mountain Range and enters the Pacific Ocean in the town of Bandon, Oregon. It is truly a remarkable experience to fish the Coquille river and I hope you someday get to share in the experience.
The South Fork of the Coquille has a fantastic hatchery winter steelhead program, allowing anglers to keep 3 hatchery steelhead per day. Located between Powers and Myrtle Point, Oregon the South Fork offers a very relaxing, yet productive, day of fishing. If you are coming from out of town you can stay at the Myrtle Trees Hotel before your epic day of fishing.
Winter and summer steelhead and fall and spring chinook will be fished for out of my 2017 17’ Willie Drift Boat. Fishing in the Bay will be fished out of my 2018 24’ Willie Raptor.
** Winter steelhead fishing takes place from the beginning of December through May 1st **
** Fall chinook fishing takes place September-October **
