SW Oregon Fishing Report

From Tim Moran

I will apologize in advance for not having a thorough SW Oregon report as I’ve been spending most of my time on the Columbia chasing salmon there this week.   The Coos River is still giving up some fish but it is fading. 

One buddy who fished the Umpqua tide water reported slow fishing this week but the persistent fishermen (and he is certainly that) were getting a chance or two at the tide changes.  PT’s and spinners and in-line flashers and herring were getting bit.  Bobber and bait fishermen were starting to get some fish in the mid tide water areas as well. 

Over on the Smith River, bobber and bait guys are also getting fish regularly! 

Rogue River steelhead fishing is great swinging flies and the half pounders are in and spread throughout so this is a great time to target them!  Lot’s of fish have gotten up river from Agness and the fishing will only get better!  

Well that’s the report for the week!  Good luck everyone and please, don’t be afraid to share your reports with me as I’d love to hear from you.  Tight lines y’all!
