Recreational halibut fishing opens May 2 in all marine areas in the Puget Sound.
Lingcod retention will be allowed with halibut on board in Marine Area 1, during the halibut season north of the Washington-Oregon border.
In all marine areas open to halibut fishing, there is a one-fish daily catch limit and no minimum size restriction. There is a four fish annual bag limit.
Anglers must record their catch on a WDFW catch record card.
See you out there!
