State Fish and Wildlife corrects rockfish regulation for northern coastal waters

State Fish and Wildlife has found an error in the new statewide regulation pamphlet that came out on May 1 for anglers planning a fishing trip to the northern coast.

In a news release here is what was pointed out:

Corrects rockfish retention rules in Marine Area 4 west of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line. Contrary to the regulation in the 2013 “Fishing in Washington” rules pamphlet, anglers fishing that area may not retain or possess rockfish at any time when fishing seaward of a line approximating 20 fathoms from May 1-Sept. 30.

The pamphlet incorrectly states that anglers may retain and/or possess rockfish seaward of a line approximating 20 fathoms during halibut openings in Marine Area 4 west of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line from May 1-Sept. 30.
