Columbia River Fish Report for 9-22-2020
Two additional September days added to Columbia River Subarea recreational Pacific halibut fishery
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
SALEM, Ore – Two more days (Sept. 28-29) are added to the Columbia River Subarea all-depth recreational Pacific halibut fishery. The subarea runs from Leadbetter Point, WA to Cape Falcon, OR and currently is open each Thursday and Sunday through September 30 or until the quota is met.
Enough quota remains to add these two days giving anglers more opportunity to harvest Pacific halibut in the subarea. Oregon and Washington manage this shared subarea in close coordination and anticipated adding additional days if catch tracked slower than predicted. The delayed start due to COVID-19 restrictions and weather during recent openings have contributed to slow catches.
