Ocean salmon season returns

The Pacific Fishery Management Council has set the 2011 salmon seasons for ocean waters off California and anglers are going to enjoy, for the first time in several years, a full-blown season. This is very good news.

The ocean recreational season will be open through early September on the far northern California coast and through the end of October for most of the remaining coast. All areas have a daily bag and possession limit of two king salmon (also called chinook) and a minimum size limit of 24 inches. Coho salmon must be released.
