The quota for the 2012 Oregon Central Coast nearshore sport halibut fishery (Cape Falcon to Humbug Mtn., and in waters less than 40 fathoms) is expected to be attained at the conclusion of fishing on July 22. Therefore, the Central Coast nearshore sport halibut fishery will close for the remainder of 2012 at 11:59 p.m. on July 22.

Anglers are reminded that the all-depth Central Coast fishery will reopen on August 3 for fishing every other week on a Friday/Saturday schedule. This fishery will remain open until the quota is projected to be taken or September 30, whichever occurs earlier. Each angler is allowed one fish per day of any size.
