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; however during 2017 there will be no bonus limit due to the lower forecast but you can keep pink salmon as part of your daily limit. Winter resident salmon fishing is a unique opportunity to catch salmon in the 'off-season' and typically runs from March through mid-April.
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.
