Marine Area 6 - East Juan de Fuca Strait

Marine Area 6 is located between Low Point to the west and Point Partridge and Point Wilson to the east, 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 for species such as Halibut and Lingcod. During odd years, Pink Salmon are available in this area.  Please note that during the 2021-22 season there will be no bonus limit on Pinks due to conservation concerns on Puget Sound Coho stocks, so Pink Salmon will count as part of the daily limit. 

Anglers who plan to fish for salmon in Canadian marine waters and return in their boats with their catch to Washington are required to notify WDFW before leaving state waters.
