Washington Anglers Get Additional Halibut Fishing Day

With 26,776 pounds of quota remaining, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will reopen in marine areas 3 and 4 (La Push and Neah Bay) to halibut fishing on Saturday, June 19.

Though that is a lot of quota for this late in June, Heather Reed, WDFW’s coastal policy coordinator, said there is not enough pounds left for a two day opening.

"There’s still quota remaining because poor weather early in the season kept people from heading out on the water," Reed said. "The remaining quota is sufficient for a one-day opening on a weekend day, when more folks can participate."
