Halibut fishing to open May 2 under higher quotas

 

April 25, 2019



Anglers fishing for halibut in Washington waters will have more halibut to catch during the 2019 season compared to recent years.

Recreational halibut seasons announced by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) are based on a statewide quota of 277,100 pounds, up by an average of 19 percent over the past three years.

Those fisheries are set to get underway May 2 in both state coastal waters and in marine areas 5-10 in Puget Sound.

Information about descending devices can be found on WDFW's webpage at https://wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/at-risk/species-recovery/rockfish.
