Public asked to help shape sport halibut season
January 14, 2010


NEWPORT – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will discuss the 2010 Pacific halibut sport season in a public meeting 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9, at the Holiday Inn Express, 135 SE 32nd St., Newport (South Beach).

Lynn Mattes, acting halibut project leader for ODFW, will have just returned from the International Pacific Halibut Commission annual meeting held Jan. 26-29, where the 2010 allowable catch is set. She will present quotas and possible open season dates for Oregon’s all-depth sport halibut fishery between Cape Falcon and Humbug Mountain.

ODFW will hear comments regarding the number and dates of fixed open days during the spring (May to July) all-depth season between Cape Falcon and Humbug Mountain, and back-up dates for the spring fishery in case quota remains after the fixed dates. People may also comment on the dates for the summer (August to October) all-depth season.

If you have questions or want to provide comments without attending the meeting, please contact Lynn Mattes at 541-867-4741 ext. 237, fax: 541-867-0311 or by email:
