Coos Bay - North Bend Visitor & Convention Bureau
Coos Bay is a long and circuitous estuary fed by the Coos River among other tributaries; it is considered the best natural harbor between San Francisco and the Puget Sound. The bay\\\'s vast acreage gives anglers plenty of elbow room as they pursue fall chinook (July through October), coho (silver) salmon (October and November) and winter steelhead (December through March). Coos Bay also offers excellent canoeing opportunities through the South Slough Estuarine Reserve, the first federally designated reserve.
