Coquille wild coho fishery could close soon

October 6, 2010


Charleston, Ore. – ODFW fishery managers are alerting anglers that the wild coho fishery on the Coquille River is nearing its harvest quota and could be closing soon. 

“Angling effort has been very high the last two weeks, with a lot of people catching fish,” said Mike Gray, ODFW fish biologist. “While we haven’t set the actual closing date, we wanted to give people as much notice as possible that it will likely be closing soon.”

The wild coho fishery is scheduled to remain open until Nov. 30 or until a harvest quota of 1,200 fish has been met.  As of Oct. 3, nearly 80 percent of the quota has been caught.

Gray suggests anglers check the ODFW website before planning a trip to the Coquille. While the wild coho fishery may close soon, the river will remain open for fall chinook fishing.
