Fishery managers have added two more days to the popular all- depth sport halibut fishery off the central Oregon coast this weekend. Fishing for Pacific halibut will be open Friday, June 29, and Satur- day, June 30, at all depths. The spring all-depth season for the central coast area - from Cape Falcon (30 miles south of the Co- lumbia River) to Humbug Mountain (south of Port Orford) - opened May 10 on Thursdays, Fridays and Satur- days. It could have closed as early as June 2 if anglers catch the entire 120,821-pound quota. Although the openings during the spring fishery are usually three days, Thursday, June 28, will not be open. "After the Friday and Satur- day opening, fisheries managers will again look at the catch and see if there is enough quota remaining for additional back-up dates," said Lynn Mattes, halibut project leader for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Subsequent decisions on open dates will be announced on the Na- tional Marine Fisheries Service hotline (1-800-662-9825) and posted on the ODFW Marine Resources Program Web site at: www.dfw.state. or.us/MRP/. Potential dates for addi- tional fishery openings include: July 12-14 and July 26-28, until the quota is met. The summer season for the central coast all-depth fishery opens Aug: 3 and is scheduled to be open every other Friday and Saturday un- til the combined spring and summer season all-depth quota of 168,786 pounds is taken or Oct. 27, which- ever comes first. The high-relief area of Stone- wall Bank is closed to halibut fish- ing to reduce incidental catch of yel- loweye rockfish and canary rockfish. Both species are considered over fished and must be released immedi- ately by anglers. The closed area is defined by latitude and longitude waypoints, which are available on the Marine Resources Program Web site: http:// Motorists hauling boats in Or- egon are required to sop at posted watercraft inspection stations to have their boats, paddlecraft and other wa- tercraft inspected for aquatic inva- sive species.
