There will be an update by noon on Friday, Sept. 7 about the Central Oregon Coast summer all-depth season.
The Central Coast nearshore halibut fishery remains open 7 days per week. When the winds have allowed anglers to get out, there has been limited success with nearshore halibut: not a lot of fish, but the average weight is a robust 25 pounds undressed. Through Aug. 26, approximately 4,200 pounds (16 percent) of the quota remained.
