Webinars set for 2022 halibut seasons, limits
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife is holding virtual public meetings on Aug. 23 and Oct. 18 to discuss proposed dates for the 2022 sport halibut season. The meetings will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. each day.
At the Aug. 23 meeting, state halibut managers will review preliminary 2021 season data and work with stakeholders to develop a range of preliminary options focused on general concepts such as ways to extend the season length and maximize fishing opportunity.
At the Oct. 18 meeting, in addition to refining the options developed at the first meeting, WDFW staff will collect further public input, review tide calendars for next spring, and select specific season dates that attempt to balance needs across various fishing communities and charter and private fishing interests.
Visit wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/halibut. Meetings will be recorded and posted online so people can also watch the meetings afterwards at their convenience.
Last week, fishery managers announced an extended halibut season for the north coast (Marine Areas 3 and 4) and in Puget Sound (Marine Areas 5-10), all of which will be reopening on Thursday, Aug. 19. These areas will be open three days per week, Thursday through Saturday, until the remaining quota is reached or through Saturday, Sept. 25, whichever comes first.
