    Is anyone fishing Swiftsure yet? Or is it too early? Swiftsure is open, correct? Or did I interpret the map with the ovals hand drawn on it incorrectly?

    ah... thanks! Guess my halibut season this year in WA will just be halibut-only instead of also a trip to Swiftsure for a shot an early salmon.
