Another halibut opener at Westport to coincide with the start of the summer salmon season

Anglers will get a chance to double dip off the south central coast at Westport (Marine Catch Area 2) for salmon and halibut on Sunday, June 28 only.

State Fish and Wildlife reports that enough halibut remains in the sport catch quota to allow the area to reopen for one-day only.

“Anglers look forward to the coastal salmon season, and this year is especially enticing given the large numbers of hatchery coho forecast to return,” Kirt Hughes, a state Fish and WIldlife regional manager said in a news release. “Now, with another day’s worth of halibut on the salmon opener, anglers could go home with both species.”

Those planning a trip to Sekiu (Marine Catch Area 5) in the Strait of Juan de Fuca will also get a chance to catch halibut and salmon on July 2 and 3. Salmon fishing alone opens on July 1.
