"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"
Daily Fishing Report
Sadly This Is A File Photo
Well now how to describe the opening day of Coho season. A real stinker would be good. We were unable to produce any Salmon, morning or afternoon. Tomorrow is a new day, let's see what it brings.
Bottom fishing and crabbing was quite good in the morning, slower in the afternoon. There Ling Cod bite was slow, but a few were taken along with limits of Rockfish for most folks. Crab continue to need culling to avoid the soft ones (they have no meat in them).
ODFW has given us the official word that ALL DEPTH HALIBUT is closed, no more back-up dates.
All Depth will re-open August 5th and 6th, then every other Friday-Saturday until the quota is met.
The NEARSHORE HALIBUT fishery (inside 40 fathoms depth) REMAINS OPEN.
This Saturday is the opening of our Hatchery Coho season, we are ready for the action.
Recreational seasons on the central Oregon Coast from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. opened for Chinook on March 15 and will continue through October 31 without interruption.
Coho seasons will have reduced quotas of 26,000 fin-clipped coho in the hatchery mark selective season from June 25 through August 7, or until the quota is reached which ever comes first. The September non-selective season that will open on September 3 and continue through the earlier of September 30 or the quota 7,500 coho.
FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSION GROUNDFISH RULES
2015 / 2016 harvest specifications and season structures for recreational and commercial groundfish include significant changes to the composition of the seven fish daily bag limit for marine fish.
For the first time since 2004, anglers will be able to RETAIN ONE CANARY ROCKFISH as part of the daily bag limit beginning MARCH 11 thanks to on-going efforts to rebuild the stock
However, due to a decrease in federally determined harvest guidelines, anglers will be LIMITED TO THREE BLUE ROCKFISH PER DAY AS PART OF THE SEVEN FISH MARINE BAG LIMIT AND THE RETENTION OF CHINA, COPPER AND QUILLBACK ROCKFISH WILL BE PROHIBITED. These regulations went into EFFECT JAN. 15, 2015.
