Spring Sport Fishery

(1) The 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations provide requirements for the Columbia River Zone and the Snake River 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 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) The Columbia River is open from January 1 through February 28 from the mouth at Buoy 10 upstream to the I-5 Bridge with the following restrictions:

(a) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained.

(b) All non-adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead must be released immediately unharmed.

(c) Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped salmon or two adult adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained per day. Catch limits for jacks remain in effect as per the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(3) The Columbia River is open March 1 through April 4, 2011 from Buoy 10 upstream to Rooster Rock (boat and bank angling); plus bank angling only from Rooster Rock upstream to Bonneville Dam. Legal boundary for Rooster Rock is defined as “A true North/South line projected from Rooster Rock on the Oregon shore to the Washington shoreline.”

(a) Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped salmonids per day, of which only one may be a Chinook.

(b) From the upper and lower ends of Sand Island and corresponding markers on the Oregon shoreline (slough at Rooster Rock State Park) angling for all species is closed from January 1 through April 30, 2011.

(c) Effective March 1 through June 15, 2011, the daily bag limit in Oregon’s Select Areas may not include more than one adipose fin-clipped Chinook when the recreational fishery in the mainstem Columbia River below Bonneville Dam is open to retention of Chinook.

(4) The Columbia River is open March 16 through April 24, 2011 from the Tower Island power lines (approximately 6 miles below The Dalles Dam) upstream to the Oregon/Washington border; plus the Oregon and Washington banks between Bonneville Dam and the Tower Island power lines. Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped Chinook or steelhead per day; or one of each.

(5) Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be retained. All non-adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead must be released immediately unharmed.

(6) Effective March 1 through May 15, 2011, the mainstem Columbia River will be open for retention of adipose fin-clipped steelhead and shad only during days and seasons open for retention of adipose fin-clipped spring Chinook.

(7) For the mainstem Columbia River salmon and steelhead fishery upstream of the Rocky Point-Tongue Point line to the Oregon/Washington border from February 15 through June 15 it is unlawful when fishing from vessels which are less than 30 feet in length, substantiated by Coast Guard documentation or Marine Board registration, to totally remove from the water any salmon or steelhead required to be released.

Purpose and General Information

(1) The purpose of these rules is to protect Oregon’s native wildlife. These rules aim for this goal by regulating human actions involving nonnative wildlife (whether those actions involve trade in nonnative wildlife or involve interaction with nonnative species in the wild). The rules allow private use or ownership of nonnative species to the extent that they do not pose a significant risk of harm to native species.

Controlled Wildlife Species

At the time the commission categorizes a species, subspecies or hybrid as Controlled, it shall also establish the controls necessary to protect native wildlife.

(1) Controlled Mammals.

(2) Controlled Birds.

(a) Mute swans (Cygnus olor): The possession, transport, sale, purchase, exchange and offer to sell, purchase or exchange is allowed provided that all males are neutered and all individuals are surgically pinioned. Importation of any mute swan is prohibited.

(b) Hawks and falcons (families Falconidae and Accipitridae): The capture, possession, propagation, transportation, release, sale, purchase, exchange and disposition of falcons is allowed only as per the requirements of OAR 635 division 44 (Holding, Propagating Protected Wildlife) and OAR 635 division 55 (Falconry Licenses, Permits and Requirements).

(c) Game birds: (Anatidae, Columbidae, Tetranidae, Phasianidae, Meleagrididae, Scolopacidae, Gruidae, Rallidae). The possession, propagation, sale, purchase and exchange of game birds is allowed only as per the requirements of OAR 635 division 44 (Holding, Propagating Protected Wildlife).

(d) Unless authorized by the Department, European starling (Sturnus vulgaris) or House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) may not be imported into Oregon or released into the wild. However, viable eggs, nestlings, fledglings, or adults may be captured from the wild, possessed, bought or sold for any other purpose (including damage control, wildlife rehabilitation or research). Except for wildlife rehabilitation, no permit is required for such capture and possession. Release of these species by licensed wildlife rehabilitators shall occur at a location designated by the Department.

(3) Controlled Amphibians.

(a) Bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) including viable eggs, hatchlings, tadpoles, juveniles and adults: No person may import, purchase, sell, barter or exchange, or offer to import, purchase, sell, barter or exchange live bull frogs. Individual bullfrogs may be collected from the wild and held indoors in an escape proof aquarium as per OAR 635-044-0035. Release is prohibited unless the person first obtains a permit from the Director.

(4) Controlled Reptiles. Order Crocodylia (Crocodiles, Alligators and Gavials) are considered exotic animals pursuant to ORS 609.305. Therefore, the keeping, breeding and sale of such animals is regulated by ORS 609.205 through 609.355 and OAR 603-011-0705 and 603-011-0706. Those statutes and rules govern the authority of local governments and the Department of Agriculture over those activities concerning these animals. However, the Fish and Wildlife Commission retains authority to regulate release and transport of these animals, and their management if they are released or escape into the wild. It is unlawful to release any member of the order Crocodylia.

Controlled Fish Species

(1) Controlled Fish

(a) Grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella): Grass carp may be released into water bodies within Oregon only pursuant to the issuance of a permit from the Department. Complete permit applications shall be submitted to Department headquarters at least 60 days before proposed stocking. A fee of $100.00 (plus a $2.00 license agent fee) shall be charged for each Grass carp permit issued. The following restrictions and standards will govern the issuance of grass carp permits:

(A) Stocking will occur only in water bodies which are:

(i) Completely within private land; or

(ii) On land owned or controlled by irrigation districts or drainage districts.

(B) Stocking will occur only in the following types of water bodies:

(i) Lakes, ponds, or reservoirs less than 10 acres; or

(ii) Ditches and canals.

(C) Public use of the water body must be restricted to prevent removal of grass carp (by angling or otherwise) by unauthorized persons. At a minimum, the water body must be closed to angling and other use by the general public.

(D) Stocking shall not detrimentally affect any population of species listed as threatened or endangered by the federal or state government.

(E) Stocking shall occur only in water bodies with fish screens approved by the Department. Such screens shall have screen openings 1 inch or less for fish 12–19 inches total length and screen openings 2 inches or less for fish over 19 inches total length. Screens shall be inspected and approved by the Department before a permit will be issued. The applicant must comply with fish passage requirements (OAR 635, division 412); given grass carp screening requirements, this entails applying for and receiving a waiver or exemption from passage requirements if grass carp will be stocked into waters where native migratory fish are or were historically present.

(F) Stocking will not be allowed in water bodies within 100-year floodplains (as delineated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency on federal Flood Insurance Rate Maps) during times of potential flood. Times of potential flood are January 1 through July 31 in watersheds east of the Cascades and October 15 through May 31 in watersheds west of the Cascades. Grass carp will be removed from water bodies in a 100-year floodplain and held or disposed of during times of potential flood. If grass carp will be held and not disposed of, they shall be held at a permitted site outside the 100-year floodplain. Applications for sites within a 100-year floodplain shall contain a detailed removal plan which shall receive Department approval.

(G) Grass carp may only be purchased and imported from approved suppliers outside Oregon. Grass carp may not be propagated or held for further distribution within Oregon. Department pathologists shall approve suppliers. Approval will be based on ability to provide grass carp free of Asian tapeworms and meet health and disease requirements according to OAR 635-007-0555 through 635-007-0585.

(H) Grass carp imported into Oregon shall be:

(i) Sterile triploids. Documentation from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that each fish is triploid must be submitted to the Department prior to release;

(ii) At least 12 inches long;

(iii) Tagged with a Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tag of frequency 134.2-kilohertz. Each tag shall be programmed with a unique identification number. A list of unique tag numbers shall be submitted to the Department prior to release; and

(iv) Stocked at a rate not exceeding 22 per affected acre.

(I) In addition to documentation relating to the restrictions above, each permit application shall include:

(i) Applicant’s name, address and daytime telephone number. All property owners of the water body to which grass carp will have unrestricted access must be party to the application and permit;

(ii) Location of the water body, including township, range, section and quarter section, with map including written directions for access;

(iii) Map of the water body including, vegetation present in the water body, all inlets and outlets, and screen locations;

(iv) Description of emergency procedures for responding to fish escapes from approved sites;

(v) Description of how fish will be removed and disposed of at the end of the proposed project.

(J) An application becomes the management plan upon approval. Permits and management plans shall be specific to particular sites and particular stocking projects. Permittees shall not deviate from permit conditions and management plans without prior written approval from the Department. No person may remove grass carp from one site (as identified in a management plan) and transport them to any other site without prior written approval from the Department.

(K) An Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife fish transport permit shall accompany grass carp imported into and transported within Oregon. If transport is required within the management plan and occurs entirely on the permittee’s property, a transport permit is not needed. Any other permit or documentation required for fish import, transport, or stocking shall also be obtained prior to importation and stocking.

(L) Permittees shall, as a condition of the permit, allow employees of the Department or the Oregon State Police to inspect at reasonable times the permitted water body, permit, and associated records. Inspection may take place without warrant or notice, but, unless prompted by emergency or other exigent circumstances, shall be limited to regular and usual business hours, including weekends. Nothing in these rules is intended to authorize or allow the warrantless search or inspection of property other than the water bodies or fish holding facilities on the permittee’s property.

(M) Permits are revocable at any time for violation of any wildlife statute or rule of the Department. Upon revocation, if stocking has already occurred, the permittee shall remove all grass carp within two weeks at her/his own cost.

(N) Grass carp which escape a permitted water body are subject to seizure or destruction by the Department at the expense of the permit holder. The permit holder shall be held liable for incidental kill of any other species due to or during destruction of escaped grass carp.

(O) The Commission may grant an exception to OAR 635-056-0075(2)(a)(B) or (2)(a)(F). Exception requests must be submitted in writing in addition to the normal application and must address the requirements in this section. Unless the Commission determines that an alternative provides equivalent protection to fish and wildlife resources and their habitats, exceptions shall have the following additional requirements:

(i) If the water body into which grass carp will be stocked is greater than or equal to 10 acres a professional topographic survey by a licensed surveyor must be provided for the entire perimeter of the water body showing all points of water movement in and out of the water body. A topographic survey completed by a state or federal agency within five years from the date of application for the water body may be used. The Department shall determine screening requirements from the survey;

(ii) Grass carp may remain in a water body within the 100-year floodplain year-round if a professional plan or drawing that is certified by a licensed engineer is provided which indicates that the entire perimeter of the water body is protected from 100-year floods. In order to prevent grass carp escape, screens, dikes, and devices protecting the water body must be able to remain structurally sound within 100-year floods and not be over-topped by a 100-year flood. The Department reserves the right to have a licensed engineer retained by the agency review and approve or deny the plan or drawing submitted by the applicant.

(b) Tilapia (Mozambique tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus, Nile tilapia O. niloticus, and hybrids thereof): The possession, propagation, transportation, sale, purchase, exchange and disposition of these tilapia is controlled according to the following restrictions and standards:

(A) A person must apply for and receive an approved propagation license from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Fish Propagation Program prior to commencing production;

(B) Propagation must occur in ponds covered with nets or screens adequate to prevent the capture or transport of cultured fish by predators or other animals;

(C) Access to production facilities must be through secure locked gates;

(D) Only animals certified as disease-free by the vendor may be purchased;

(E) Permittees must provide adequate veterinary care to identify and minimize the spread of diseases originating from the animals being held;

(F) No live tilapia or their gametes, fertilized eggs, or larvae may be released into waters of this State, as defined in ORS 506.006; and

(G) An Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife fish transport permit shall accompany live tilapia imported into and transported within Oregon. If transport occurs entirely on the permittee’s property, a transport permit is not needed.

(2) Controlled Mollusks

(a) Suminoe oysters (Crassostrea ariakensis), Pacific oysters (C. gigas), Kumamoto oysters (C. sikamea), Eastern oysters (C. virginica), and European flat oysters (Ostrea edulis) may be purchased and imported from outside Oregon (or from other estuaries within Oregon) for release into estuaries in Oregon pursuant to the terms of a permit issued by the department. Complete permit applications must be submitted to the department’s Marine Resources Program Headquarters (2040 SE Marine Science Drive, Newport, Oregon 97365) at least 15 days before proposed stocking. Oysters may be commercially harvested and sold pursuant to OAR 635-005-0001 through 635-005-0035.

(b) Softshell clam (Mya arenaria), Japanese varnish clam (Nuttalia obscuratai), and Japanese littleneck clam (Venerupis philipinnarum) may be harvested, possessed and sold commercially pursuant to OAR 635-005-0001 through 635-005-0035 or harvested and possessed recreationally pursuant to OAR 635-039.

Classification Requests

(1) For species that are not listed in these rules, no person may possess, import, purchase, sell, exchange, or offer to purchase, sell or exchange the species in Oregon.

(2) Species may be classified as Prohibited, Controlled or Noncontrolled. The classification may vary by activity (e.g., possession allowed, but sale prohibited). If a specific nonnative species, subspecies or hybrid is not classified as either Prohibited, Controlled or Noncontrolled, or is classified but not for a particular activity (e.g., import, sale, possession, transport), any person may either:

(a) Petition the commission to classify the species or allow the particular activity pursuant to OAR 137-001-0070; or

(b) Request the director to classify the species as Noncontrolled, pursuant to OAR 635-056-0140.

(c) Any person petitioning or requesting classification shall provide information illustrating that the requested action will not harm, nor has the potential to harm, any native species or its habitat. The information should be scientific in nature, in written form and include an appropriate literature cited section.

(3) In evaluating a request to classify a species, subspecies or hybrid, the commission may consider the following factors, when appropriate:

(a) Potential to introduce disease or parasites to native wildlife populations;

(b) Potential for interbreeding or hybridizing with native wildlife;

(c) Possible competition with native wildlife for habitat, food, water, etc.;

(d) Impacts on the habitat of native wildlife;

(e) Potential predation on native wildlife;

(f) Feasibility and cost of capturing or eradicating escaped animals; or

(g) Any other factor or consideration the commission considers necessary to protect and maintain native wildlife.

(4) The director may appoint a Wildlife Integrity Review Panel to consider the information presented by the petitioner as appropriate. The director may, in appointing the panel, consider scientific expertise, professional background, and other qualifications needed to make sound decisions. The director may seek commission recommendations in making Wildlife Integrity Review Panel appointments. If convened, the panel shall make a recommendation to the commission on the classification of the species, subspecies or hybrid and what conditions, if any, should apply to the proposed activity (e.g., import, sale, possession, transfer).

(5) The director may call for scientific based studies or other verifiable information useful in placing the requested species in the appropriate classification category.

Definition of “Wild Birds” and “Wild Mammals”

This rule governs all Commission Rules using the terms “wild birds” or “wild mammals,” pursuant to SB 804, (Oregon Laws 2007). The purpose of this rule is to clarify the scope of the term “wildlife,” which according to statute includes (among other things) “wild mammals” and “wild birds.” “Wildlife” is the term used in many statutes describing the regulatory authority of the Fish and Wildlife Commission. The intent of this rule is to include as “wild mammals” and “wild birds” all species which, if viewed globally, typically exist in a wild state. Note that other statutes governing the authority of other agencies may use terms that (in some circumstances) may overlap with the Commission’s authority over “wildlife.” For example, the Department of Agriculture has the authority to regulate the private holding of “exotic” animals, some of which otherwise qualify as “wildlife” (and which the Commission otherwise is in charge of regulating). Therefore, the reader is cautioned to note distinctions in how Oregon law uses different terms regarding wild animals.

(1) “Wild mammals” means all mammals except:

(a) Alpaca, Guanaco, Llama – Lama glama.

(b) Ass, Burro, Donkey – Equus asinus.

(c) Bison – Bison bison.

(d) Camel – Camelus bactrianus and C. dromedarius.

(e) Cat (all domestic breeds) – Felis catus.

(f) Cattle and Yak – Bos species.

(g) Chinchilla – Chinchilla laniger.

(h) Dog (all domestic breeds) – Canis familiaris.

(i) European Rabbit – Oryctolagus cuniculus.

(j) Ferret (European polecat) – Mustela putorius.

(k) Gerbil (Mongolian Jird) – Meriones unguiculatus.

(l) Goat – Capra hircus.

(m) Guinea pig – Cavia porcellus.

(n) Common Hamster – Cricetus cricetus.

(o) Horse – Equus caballus.

(p) Mouse (House mouse) – Mus musculus.

(q) Mule and Hinny – Equus asinus x E. caballus.

(r) Rat – Rattus norvegicus and R. rattus.

(s) Sheep – Ovis aries and hybrids of O. aries with O. aires orientalis, hybrids of O. aries with Ammotragus lervia, and hybrids of O. aries with Pseudois nayaur.

(t) Swine – Sus scrofa domestica (includes pot-bellied pigs)

(u) Vicuña – Vicugna vicugna.

(2) “Wild birds” means all birds except:

(a) Cassowary Casuarius species;

(b) Chicken Gallus gallus;

(c) Ducks and Geese (morphologically distinct from wild waterfowl; except (Egyptian geese and Mute swans);

(d) Emu – Dromaius novaehollandiae;

(e) Guinea fowl – Numida meleagris;

(f) Ostrich – Struthio camelus;

(g) Parrots, Parakeets, Lories, and Cockatoos Psittaciformes (All species);

(h) Peafowl – Pavo cristatus;

(i) Pigeon or Rock dove – Columba livia;

(j) Rhea – Rhea americana and R. pennata;

(k) Turkey (morphologically distinct from wild turkey) – Meleagris gallopavo.
