Marine Area 6 is located east from Low Point to Partridge Point and Point Wilson primarily within the Strait of Juan de Fuca and to the west side of Whidbey Island. Excellent summer and winter salmon fishing opportunities exist here, as well as superb bottomfishing, such as halibut and lingcod. During odd years, an additional two pink salmon can be kept which gives anglers another way to take home some extra fish. Additionally, a pink salmon fishery is in place from mid-July to mid-August during odd years in Dungeness Bay. Winter resident salmon fishing is a unique opportunity to catch salmon in the 'off-season' and typically runs from December through April.
