In addition to the days that are already scheduled, recreational fishing for Pacific halibut will be open in the Washington Subareas (Columbia River, South Coast, North Coast and Puget Sound) on 28 June 2019. Fishing days have been added in response to the higher than anticipated fishery limit and poor weather days.
