ODFW To Hold Public Meeting In North Bend


The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host two public meetings on the 2018 recreational Pacific halibut fisheries. One will be on Tuesday, September 26th at 6pm in the North Bend Library, the other on Wednesday, September 27th at 6pm in the ODFW Marine Resources Program conference room, 2040 Marine Science Drive Newport.
 
ODFW staff are holding the meetings to seek input on two changes to the 2018 recreational halibut fisheries. There is one proposed change to the days of the week open for the Columbia River Subarea all-depth fishery (currently open Thursday through Sunday; the proposal is to open Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, but not Saturday). Also, one proposal to split the Central Oregon Coast subarea into two areas, north and south of the north Florence Jetty. There are no proposed changes to the Southern Oregon Subarea.
