Coquille River and Coos Bay Salmon
The Coquille and Coos have been steady producers of king salmon for the past several years. The two systems kick off the fall salmon seasons on the coast because of the early arrival of salmon there. The first kings show up in August, and by September, fishing is often wide open.

Trolling is the main technique used on both the Coos and Coquille bays. Plug-cut herring combined with a Fish Flash flasher tricks thousands of salmon into biting each season. The fish are chrome bright and fresh from the ocean, making them hard fighters and great table fare. Guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing fishes the Coquille and Coos Bays from his custom 24-foot jet boat. He has been trolling the coastal waters and bays of Southern Oregon for more than two decades and is an expert at fishing plug-cut herring for salmon.

Aside from king salmon, which occasionally push 40 pounds, the Coos and Coquille have big runs of coho salmon. They are among the few Oregon rivers where wild coho can be kept. The coho, or silvers as they are often called, usually show up several weeks after the first kings enter the bays.

The Coquille Bay, located near the town of Bandon, Oregon, also has exceptional crabbing. Andy will often dump several crab pots the morning of his trips, and then take customers trolling for salmon. The day ends by pulling up the crab pots. Limits of salmon and fresh Dungeness crab make for an outstanding trip. The typical limit on both the Coos and Coquille is two salmon per day per person, and 12 male Dungeness crab per person.

The last two weeks of September and first week of October are the peak season for salmon trolling in the two bays.

Steelhead fishing on the Coquille picks up in late December and peaks in January and February. The Coquille has one of the biggest hatchery steelhead runs on the Oregon Coast. The Coquille often fishes best when other nearby rivers are running low and clear.
"Andy, Thanks for the great trip.
We are still eating salmon!"
