The all-depth halibut Central Oregon fishery is open next on Sept. 1-2. This will probably be the last summer opener if ocean conditions are good. There are 24,967 pounds of the summer all-depth halibut quota remaining.
The summer nearshore halibut fishery for the central Oregon sub-area will reopen beginning September 3rd. Boats targeting halibut must have a ready-to-use descending device on board.
