Chinook salmon: North Coast, May to mid-September; Central Coast, various weeks in May, June, July and August and the full months of September and October: Southern Coast, various weeks in May, June, July and August.

Coho salmon: July, August and most of September

Pacific halibut: late June to early August

Albacore tuna: June to October

Lingcod, blackcod, sole, rockfish and flounder: All year round

Dungeness crab: December through mid-August
