Controlled Western Oregon Elk Rifle Hunts

(1) Tags shall be issued by a controlled hunt drawing following the procedures established in OAR chapter 635, division 060. A person successful in drawing a tag for a controlled elk season shall not hunt in any other elk season, except as provided in OAR chapter 635, division 090, or they may hunt in any controlled elk season for which they possess a “left over” tag obtained through the first-come, first-serve process.

(2) Notwithstanding the provisions of the 2012 Oregon Big Game Regulations: The hunt listed on page 65 for the Coffee Butte (225C) Master Hunter Anterless Elk Hunt is deleted.

Deep River Select Area Salmon Season

(1) Salmon, shad, and white sturgeon may be taken for commercial purposes from the US Coast Guard navigation marker #16 upstream to the Highway 4 Bridge.

(2) The 2013 fishing seasons are open:

(a) Winter season: Monday and Thursday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours) beginning February 11 through March 14 (10 nights); and Monday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours) on March 18, March 25, and April 1 (3 nights).

(b) Spring season: Thursday, April 18; Tuesday, April 23; and Thursday and Monday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours) beginning April 25 through June 13 (17 nights in all).

(3) Gear restrictions are as follows:

(a) Gill nets may not exceed 100 fathoms in length and there is no weight restriction on the lead line. The attachment of additional weight and/or anchors directly to the lead line is permitted. Nets may not be tied off to stationary structures and may not fully cross navigation channel.

(b) It is unlawful to operate in any river, stream or channel any gill net longer than three-fourths the width of the stream. It is unlawful in any area to use, operate, or carry aboard a commercial fishing vessel a licensed net or combination of such nets, whether fished singly or separately, in excess of the maximum lawful size or length prescribed for a single net in that area. Nets not specifically authorized for use in these areas may be onboard a vessel if properly stored. A properly stored net is defined as a net on a drum that is fully covered by a tarp (canvas or plastic) and bound with a minimum of ten revolutions of rope with a diameter of 3/8 (0.375) inches or greater.

(c) Nets that are fished at any time between official sunset and official sunrise must have lighted buoys on both ends of the net unless the net is attached to the boat. If the net is attached to the boat, then one lighted buoy on the opposite end of the net from the boat is required.

(d) During the winter season, outlined above in subsection (2)(a), it is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is less than 7-inches.

(e) During the spring season, outlined above in subsection (2)(b) it is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches.

(4) A maximum of four (4) white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) during the winter season described in section (2)(a) above and a maximum of two (2) white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) during the spring season described in section (2)(b) above. During the fishing periods identified in subsections (2)(a) and (2)(b) above, the weekly white sturgeon limit applies to combined possessions and sales for all open Select Area fisheries.

(5) Transportation or possession of fish outside the fishing area (except to the sampling station) is unlawful until WDFW staff has biologically sampled individual catches. After sampling, fishers will be issued a transportation permit by WDFW staff. During the winter season, described in subsection (2)(a) above, fishers are required to call (360) 795-0319 for the location and time of sampling. During the spring season, described in subsection (2)(b) above, a sampling station will be established at WDFW’s Oneida Road boat ramp, about 0.5 miles upstream of the lower Deep River area boundary (USCG navigation marker #16).

Filed with Sec. of State: 2-12-2013

Certified to be Effective: 2-28-13 thru 7-31-13

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-023-0095, 635-023-0125

Rules Suspended: 635-023-0095(T)

Subject: These amended rules set 2013 Columbia River recreational spring Chinook season regulations with descriptions of areas, dates, and bag limits for recreational harvest of adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead. Additional modifications establish 2013 retention fisheries for white sturgeon. Revisions are consistent with action taken January 30, 2013 by Columbia River Compact agencies of the states of Oregon and Washington.

(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.

Legal upstream boundary defined as: “A deadline marker on the Oregon bank (approximately four miles downstream from Bonneville Dam Powerhouse 1) in a straight line through the western tip of Pierce Island to a deadline marker on the Washington bank at Beacon Rock.” Daily bag limit is two (2) adult salmonids but only one may be a Chinook. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be kept. All other permanent regulations apply.
