April 1 through September 30 bottomfish fishing is restricted to inside the 30-fathom line (link to waypoints below)
Cabezon opens July 1
If you encounter canary rockfish or yelloweye rockfish, please consider using a recompression or descending device to return the fish to depth. These fish have a high chance at survival when returned, even if their stomach and/or eyes are extended and bulging.
