Another Day For North WA Coast Halibut


Marine Areas 3 and 4 will reopen for another day of halibut fishing

Action:   Open the recreational halibut fishery in marine areas 3 and 4 (La Push and Neah Bay) to recreational halibut fishing.

Effective date: Thursday June 30, 2011, from 12:01 a.m. through 11:59 p.m.

Species affected: Pacific halibut.

Location:   Marine areas 3 and 4.

Reason for action:   There is sufficient halibut quota remaining in marine areas 3 and 4 to re-open the recreational halibut fishery for one day. This rule conforms state rules to federal action taken by the National Marine Fisheries Service and approved by the International Pacific Halibut Commission.  Anglers are encouraged to check the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife website or hotline for information regarding re-openings.
