FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSION SETS 2015 GROUNDFISH RULES
January 9, 2015
SALEM, Ore. -- The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission met today and set the 2015 harvest specifications and season structures for recreational and commercial groundfish that 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 as EARLY AS MARCH, thanks to on-going efforts to rebuild the stock. The exact date for the new rule will be announced following approval of a parallel federal harvest rule.
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 go into EFFECT JAN. 15, 2015. ODFW staff had proposed a blue rockfish sub-limit of one per day, but after public testimony the Commission adopted a less-conservative limit of three blue rockfish per day.
WE ARE NOW FEATURING ON-LINE RESERVATION REQUESTS FOR BOTH FISHING AND WHALE WATCHING.
