2012 Pacific Halibut Quotas, Rules, and Tentative Fishing Dates

Overview

With what seems to be good ocean conditions and rising fish stocks, the 2012 Sport Pacific Halibut season off of the Southern Oregon Coast should be excellent.

Quota

The 2012 Pacific Halibut Sport Fishing quota has been set by the IPHC.  According to the ODFW website, the 2012 catch limit is 0.989 million pounds for area 2A (West Coast); this is a 9 percent increase from 2011 (0.910 million pounds) and the highest 2A limit since 2008.  This should mean more fish for our freezers here on the South Coast.

Check out the ODFW Pacific Halibut Sport Fishing Regulations for specific quota information.

Season Dates

The All-Depth Fishery starts on Thursday May 10th.
