NEWPORT – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will discuss the 2009 Pacific halibut sport season in a public meeting 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Embarcadero Hotel, 1000 SE Bay Blvd., Newport.

Don Bodenmiller, halibut project leader for ODFW, will have just returned from the International Pacific Halibut Commission annual meeting held Jan. 12-16, where the 2009 allowable catch is set. He will present quotas and possible open season dates for Oregon’s all-depth sport halibut fishery between Cape Falcon and Humbug Mountain.

ODFW will hear comments regarding the number and dates of fixed open days during the spring (May to July) all-depth season between Cape Falcon and Humbug Mountain, and back-up dates for the spring fishery in case quota remains after the fixed dates. People may also comment on the dates for the summer (August to October) all-depth season.

If you have questions or want to provide comments without attending the meeting, please contact Bodenmiller or Lynn Mattes at 541-867-4741 or by email: or
