Salmon Season Opens Saturday, April 6! Rockfishing Opens Wednesday, May 1!
Salmon Season Opens on Saturday, April 6! Here's the scoop:
The 2013 salmon season for our area opens on Saturday, April 6 with a two salmon limit of not less than 24 inches per person per day.
The final details for the rest of the season will be decided at the next fishery management meeting in early April, but, as it stands now, it looks like the salmon season will remain open off our coastline until early November. There will probably be changes to the minimum size limit and maybe a few days off the water here and there, but it's time to go fishing again from Half Moon Bay! Once the season begins, our shop will be open at 5:00 a.m. daily on the days our boats operate.
And don't forget about rockfishing...the rockfishing season opens on Wednesday, May 1 below Pigeon Point and Saturday, June 1 above Pigeon Point through the end of December.
