North Coastal sport halibut fishery to reopen June 30

The northern coast off La Push and Neah Bay will get another day of halibut fishing on June 30 after state Fish and Wildlife determined enough remained in the sport catch quota.

“We had enough left in the quota to open it on a Thursday (June 30), and we got a lot of call wanting to know why we could do a weekend day and we just didn’t have enough,” said Heather Reed, a state Fish and Wildlife coastal halibut biologist.

About 13,081 pounds are left the sport catch quota.

“The weather wasn’t great during the last opener, we also had strong currents, and it has been pretty much a lack of (angler) effort rather than a lack of success this season,” Reed said.
