Inclusions and Modifications

(1) OAR 635-013-0005 through OAR 635-013-0009 modify or are in addition to provisions contained in Code of Federal Regulations, Title 50, Part 660, Subparts A and H, and the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 50, Part 660, Subparts A and H, and the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations contain requirements for sport salmon angling in the Pacific Ocean off the Oregon coast. However, additional regulations may be adopted from time to time, and, to the extent of any inconsistency, they supersede the published federal regulations and the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations. This means that persons must consult not only the federal regulations and the published sport fishing regulations but also the Department’s web page to determine all applicable sport fishing regulations.

(3) This rule contains requirements that modify sport salmon angling regulations off the Oregon coast. The following modifications are organized in sections that apply to the ocean sport salmon fishery in general and within management zones established by the Pacific Fishery Management Council and enacted by Federal Regulations (CFR, Title 50, Part 660, Subparts A and H).

Sturgeon Season

(1) The 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations provide requirements for the Willamette Zone. However, additional regulations may be adopted in this rule division from time to time and to the extent of any inconsistency, they supersede the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) The Willamette River downstream of Willamette Falls (including Multnomah Channel and the Gilbert River) is open to the retention of white sturgeon three days per week, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday during the period from February 17 until the harvest guideline is met.

(3) Bank angling is prohibited from the east shore of the Willamette River the entire year in the area beginning west of Highway 99E, at the northern-most extent of the parking area near the intersection of 8th Street and Highway 99E in Oregon City, approximately 290 feet downstream of the Oregon City/West Linn bridge (Hwy 43) and extending upstream approximately 1715 feet to the retaining wall extending into the Willamette River at the NW corner of the Blue Heron Paper Mill.

(4) Only white sturgeon with a fork length of 38-54 inches may be retained. Retention of green sturgeon is prohibited all year in all areas.

(5) Angling for sturgeon, including catch-and-release, is prohibited seven days per week during May 1 through August 31 from Willamette Falls downstream to the I-205 Bridge.

Rule Caption: Amendments to Rules for Commercial and Recreational Groundfish Fisheries and Fish Dealer Records and Reports.

Adm. Order No.: DFW 164-2011

Filed with Sec. of State: 12-27-2011

Certified to be Effective: 1-1-12

Notice Publication Date: 1-1-2011

Rules Amended: 635-004-0018, 635-004-0019, 635-004-0033, 635-006-0210, 635-006-0211, 635-006-0215, 635-039-0080, 635-039-0090

Subject: Amended rules to include: 2012 federal groundfish regulations incorporated into state rule; 2012 commercial nearshore groundfish harvest specifications; 2012 recreational groundfish regulations; and changes to regulations governing fish dealer records and reports. State rules governing marine commercial and recreational groundfish fisheries are based on rules adopted federally. The final federal rules governing 2012 groundfish fisheries are expected to be published before January 1, 2012. Changes to these rules, primarily for groundfish species, are needed to clarify legal processes for completing fish tickets and/or monthly remittance reports.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

635-004-0018

Scope of Rules

Division 4 incorporates into Oregon Administrative Rules, by reference, the groundfish specifications and management measures for 2012 to the extent they are consistent with:

(1) Code of Federal Regulations, Title 50 Part 660, Subparts C, D, E and F (October 1, 2011 ed.) as amended;

(2) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 43, dated May 11, 2011 (76 FR 27508);

(3) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 231, dated December 1, 2011 (76 FR 74725);

(4) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 239, dated December 13, 2011 (76 FR 77415); and

(5) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 245, dated December 21, 2011 (76 FR 79122).

Therefore, persons must consult the Federal Regulations in addition to division 4 to determine all applicable groundfish fishing requirements. Where regulations refer to the fishery management area, that area is extended from shore to three nautical miles from shore coterminous with the Exclusive Economic Zone. A copy of the Federal Regulations may be obtained by contacting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service at www.nwr.noaa.gov or 7600 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98115-0070.

(d) Retention of all marine fish listed under the category of Species Name, Marine Fish, except Pacific cod, sablefish, herring, anchovy, smelt, sardine, striped bass, hybrid bass, and offshore pelagic species (excluding leopard shark and soupfin shark), is prohibited when Pacific halibut is retained on the vessel during open days for the all-depth sport fishery for Pacific halibut north of Humbug Mountain. Persons must also consult all publications referenced in OAR 635-039-0080 to determine all rules applicable to the taking of Pacific halibut.

(e) Harvest methods and other specifications for marine fish in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) including the following:

(A) Minimum length for lingcod, 22 inches.

(B) Minimum length for cabezon, 16 inches.

(C) Minimum length for greenling, 10 inches.

(D) May be taken by angling, hand, bow and arrow, spear, gaff hook, snag hook and herring jigs.

(E) Mutilating the fish so the size or species cannot be determined prior to landing or transporting mutilated fish across state waters is prohibited.

(f) Sport fisheries for species in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) and including leopard shark and soupfin shark are open January 1 through December 31, twenty-four hours per day, except as provided in subsections (5)(a) and (5)(d), and ocean waters are closed for these species during April 1 through September 30, outside of the 30-fathom curve (defined by latitude and longitude) as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 71. A 20-fathom, 25-fathom, or 30-fathom curve, as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 71 may be implemented as the management line as in-season modifications necessitate. In addition, the following management lines may be used to set area specific regulations for inseason action only:

(A) Cape Lookout (45°20’30” N latitude); and

(B) Cape Blanco (42°50’20” N latitude).

(g) The Stonewall Bank Yelloweye Rockfish Conservation Area (YRCA) is defined by coordinates specified in Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 70 (October 1, 2011 ed.). Within the YRCA, it is unlawful to fish for, take, or retain species listed in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) of this rule, leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut using recreational fishing gear. A vessel engaged in recreational fishing within the YRCA is prohibited from possessing any species listed in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) of this rule, leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut. Recreational fishing vessels in possession of species listed in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) and including leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut may transit the YRCA without fishing gear in the water.
