NEWPORT, Ore – Recreational halibut anglers can learn more about the 2022 Central Oregon Coast Subarea season at a February public meeting. ODFW is hosting the virtual meeting Tuesday, Feb. 8, 6-7:30 p.m. to discuss this fishery with anglers.

ODFW will review the International Pacific Halibut Commission’s (IPHC) annual meeting and resulting recreational Pacific halibut quotas. Attendees are asked to give input on the number and timing of “fixed” and “backup” dates for the Central Oregon Coast Subarea spring all-depth halibut season.
