No salmon landed here the last few days. The boats that are catching are out in the deep, about 360 feet of water. There's some bait showing back by Marshall but no halibut that I've heard of lately. Rockfish will open on Monday the 13th as there is no effective date yet set for the new regulations. The regs were adopted on May 26 and sent to the Office of Administrative Law yesterday, so maybe by the end of July we'll get a break on lingcod length. There are still some Dungeness in the bay and the season has another 3 weeks, so if you haven't caught your fill, now's the time to do it.
