The possession limit for halibut is EITHER of: one (1) halibut measuring 35.4 in/90 cm to 52 in/133 cm in length (69 cm to 102 cm head-off), OR two (2) halibut, each measuring under 35.4 in/90 cm in length (69 cm head-off). Also at our lodge guests are permitted to retain halibut over 52 in/133 cm in length under “The Experimental Recreational Halibut Program”. This program provides opportunity for recreational harvesters to retain halibut in excess of 52 in/133 cm in length.
Due to conservation concerns there is now zero rockfish retention/possession at the Rivers Inlet Sportsman’s Club.
More information on Coastal BC possession limits is available on the Fisheries and Oceans website.
Over time I have fished all over Alaska, the Washington coast & BC. I am 83 years old & not quite as spry as in the past. This past year I did quite well catching coho. We caught our limits & released at least as many more! The scenery is beautiful & wildlife (whales, seals, eagles & otters) interesting. The food is great & the service outstanding. Anything one wants is provided on request.
