  • Fishing Gear
  • (1) As used in these Columbia River fishing rules, gill net includes drift gill net, floater gill net, diver gill net, and is a monofilament or multifilament mesh net with a cork and lead line which is in a position to drift with the tide or current at all times while it is being fished. There must be sufficient buoyancy in the corks and/or floats on the cork line so the net is free to drift with the current. The lead or weight on the lead line of a gill net shall not exceed two pounds in total weight on any one fathom, measurement to be taken along the cork line of the net. However, should extra or added weights appear necessary to operate a net, permission to use in excess of two pounds weight per fathom of net may be granted by the Director upon written application which includes adequate justification for the additional leads or weights.
  • (2) It is unlawful:
  • (a) For a gill net in whole or in part to be anchored, tied, staked, fixed, or attached to the bottom, shore, or a beached boat; left unattended at any time it is fished; or attended by more than one boat while being fished;
  • (b) To take any species of salmon from the Columbia River for commercial purposes by any means other than by gill net;
  • (c) To fish more than one gill net from a licensed commercial fishing boat at any one time;
  • (d) To fish with or have on the boat while fishing a gill net which exceeds 1,500 feet in length;
  • (e) To fish with or have on the boat while fishing any gill net of a mesh size not authorized for use at that time, except:
  • (A) During December 1-March 31 when the following applies:
  • (i) While fishing during open salmon and/or sturgeon seasons, smelt gill nets with a mesh size not more than two inches may be onboard the boat;
  • (ii) While fishing during open smelt seasons, gill nets with a mesh size greater than two inches may be onboard the boat.
  • (B) Nets with a minimum mesh size of 9.0 inches may be onboard the boat.
  • (C) When specifically authorized, nets not lawful for use at that time and area may be onboard the boat 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.
  • (f) Fish with or have on the boat while fishing any gill net of a mesh size greater than 9-3/4 inches, except that snagging nets as described in ORS 509.240 are permitted;
  • (g) Fish with or have on the boat while fishing a gill net which does not meet the construction requirements for a gill net as set forth in section (1) of this rule, except while fishing during the Tongue Point Select Area Salmon Season (OAR 635-042-0170) gill nets with leadline in excess of two pounds per fathom may be stored on the boat.
  • (3) The mesh size of any gill net is determined only after the meshes are wet from soaking in water not less than one hour. Three consecutive meshes are then placed under ten pounds of vertical tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one vertical knot to the outside of the opposite vertical knot of the center mesh.
  • (4) As used in these rules, “slackers” means a single piece of material or cord, not webbing or mesh, connected vertically or woven in the mesh of the net between the cork and lead lines. It is used to tie netting in a shortened state to give the net surface flexibility.
  • (5) Nets fished any time between official sunset and sunrise must have lighted buoys on both ends of the net. If the net is attached to the boat, then one lighted buoy on the end of the net opposite the boat is required.
  • (6) The use of a “chafing strip panel” attached to the bottom of the net is allowed. A “chafing strip panel” consists of no more than 60 inches of non-mono-filament webbing (such as nylon seine web or polyethylene trawl web) with a maximum mesh size of 3.5 inches. There are no restrictions associated with hangings used to connect the net to the chafing panel or the net or chafing panel to the leadline or corkline.

  • (b) The fishing areas for the winter, spring and summer fisheries are:
  • (A) From February 13 through March 11 and from April 18 through July 29, 2011, the fishing area is identified as the waters of Youngs Bay from the Highway 101 Bridge upstream to the upper boundary markers at the confluence of the Klaskanine and Youngs rivers; except for those waters which are closed southerly of the alternate Highway 101 Bridge (Lewis and Clark River).
  • (B) On March 14 and 16, 2011, the fishing area extends from the old Youngs Bay Bridge upstream to the upper boundary markers at the confluence of the Youngs and Klaskanine rivers.
  • (2) Gill nets may not exceed 1,500 feet (250 fathoms) in length and weight may not exceed two pounds per any fathom. A red cork must be placed on the corkline every 25 fathoms as measured from the first mesh of the net. Red corks at 25-fathom intervals must be in color contrast to the corks used in the remainder of the net.
  • (a) It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is less than 7-inches during the winter season. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches during the spring and summer seasons. 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.
  • (b) The use of additional weights or anchors attached directly to the leadline is allowed upstream of markers located approximately 200 yards upstream of the mouth of the Walluski River during all Youngs Bay commercial fisheries.
  • (3) A maximum of two white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fisheries are open. During the fishing periods identified in subsections (1)(a)(A), (1)(a)(B) and (1)(a)(C), the weekly white sturgeon limit applies to combined possessions and sales for all open Select Area fisheries.

  • (2) South Channel area includes all waters bounded by a line from a marker on John Day Point through the green USCG buoy “7” thence to a marker on the southwest end of Lois Island upstream to an upper boundary line from a marker on Settler Point northwesterly to the flashing red USCG marker “10” thence northwesterly to a marker on Burnside Island defining the terminus of South Channel.
  • (3) Salmon, shad and white sturgeon may be taken for commercial purposes in those waters of Tongue Point and South Channel as described in section (1) and section (2) of this rule. Open fishing periods are:
  • (a) Spring Season: Monday and Thursday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours) beginning Monday, April 25 through Thursday, June 9, 2011 (14 nights).
  • (4) Gear restrictions are as follows:
  • (a) In waters described in section (1) as Tongue Point basin, gill nets may not exceed 250 fathoms in length and weight limit on the lead line is not to exceed two pounds on any one fathom. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches. While fishing during the seasons described in this rule, gillnets with lead line in excess of two pounds per fathom may be stored on boats.
  • (b) In waters described in section (2) as South Channel, nets are restricted to 100 fathoms in length with no weight restrictions on the lead line. The attachment of additional weight and anchors directly to the lead line is permitted. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches. While fishing during the seasons described in this rule, gillnets up to 250 fathoms in length may be stored on boats.
  • (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.
  • (5) A maximum of two white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fishery is open. During the fishing periods identified in section (3)(a) above, the weekly white sturgeon limit applies to combined possessions and sales for all open Select Area fisheries.
  • (6) During April 25 through May 20, transportation or possession of fish outside the fishing area is unlawful except while in transit to the ODFW sampling station and until ODFW staff has biologically sampled individual catches. A sampling station will be established near the Tongue Poing fishing area. Fishers will be able to confirm the location of the sampling station by calling (503) 428-0518. After sampling, fishers will be issued a transportation permit by agency staff. Beginning May 23, fishers are required to call (503) 428-0518 and leave a message including: name, catch, and where and when the fish will be sold.

  • Inclusions and Modifications
  • (1) The 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations provide requirements for sport fisheries for marine fish, shellfish, and marine invertebrates in the Pacific Ocean, coastal bays, and beaches, commonly referred to as the Marine 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) For the purposes of this rule, a “sport harvest cap” is defined as the amount that may be impacted (combined landings and other fishery related mortality) by the Oregon sport fishery in a single calendar year.
  • (a) For 2011, the sport harvest cap for black rockfish is 440.8 metric tons.
  • (3) For the purposes of this rule, “Other nearshore rockfish” means the following rockfish species: black and yellow (Sebastes chrysolmelas); brown (S. auriculatus); calico (S. dalli); China (S. nebulosus); copper (S. caurinus); gopher (S. carnatus); grass (S. rastelliger); kelp (S. atrovirens); olive (S. serranoides); quillback (S. maliger); and treefish (S. serriceps).
  • (4) For the purposes of this rule a “sport landing cap” is defined as the total landings for a given species, or species group, that may be taken in a single calendar year by the ocean boat fishery. For 2011 the sport landing caps are:
  • (a) Black rockfish and blue rockfish combined, 481.8 metric tons.
  • (b) Other nearshore rockfish, 13.6 metric tons.
  • (c) Cabezon, 15.8 metric tons.
  • (d) Greenling, 5.2 metric tons.
  • (5) In addition to the regulations for Marine Fish in the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, the following apply for the sport fishery in the Marine Zone in 2011:
  • (a) Lingcod (including green colored lingcod): 2 fish daily bag limit.
  • (b) All rockfish (“sea bass” “snapper”), greenling (“sea trout”), cabezon, skates, and other marine fish species not listed in the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations in the Marine Zone, located under the category of Species Name, Marine Fish: 7 fish daily bag limit in aggregate (total sum or number), of which no more than one be a cabezon from April 1 through September 30. Retention of yelloweye rockfish and canary rockfish is prohibited.
  • (c) Flatfish (flounder, sole, sanddabs, turbot, and all halibut species except Pacific halibut): 25 fish daily bag limit in aggregate (total sum or number).
  • (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 that ocean waters are closed for these species during April 1 through September 30, outside of the 40-fathom curve (defined by latitude and longitude) as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 384 Vol. 71, No. 189, dated September 29, 2006. A 20-fathom, 25-fathom, or 30-fathom curve, as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 391 Vol. 71, No. 189, dated September 29, 2006 may be implemented as the management line as in-season modifications necessitate.
  • (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, 2010 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.
  • (6) Razor clams may be taken by hand, shovel, or cylindrical gun or tube. The opening of the gun/tube must be either circular or elliptical with the circular gun/tube opening having a minimum outside diameter of 4 inches and the elliptical gun/tube opening having minimum outside diameter dimensions of 4 inches long and 3 inches wide.

  • Spring Chinook Gillnet and Tangle Net Fisheries
  • (1) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon, white sturgeon and shad may be taken by drift tangle net for commercial purposes from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Kelley Point (Zones 1–3 and part of Zone 4) during the following period: Tuesday, March 29, 2011 from 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. (4 hours).
  • (a) Individual fishing periods will not exceed sixteen hours in length during small mesh fisheries and twenty-four hours in length during large mesh fisheries. Fishing periods may occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending upon results from test fisheries or full fleet fisheries conducted prior to each specified weekday.
  • (b) White sturgeon possession and sales restrictions by each participating vessel will be determined inseason based on gear type and number of fish remaining on the fish guideline.
  • (c) Retention of green sturgeon is prohibited.
  • (2) An adipose fin clip salmon is defined as a hatchery salmon with a clipped adipose fin and having a healed scar at the location of the fin. The adipose fin is the small fatty fin on salmonids located between the dorsal fin and tail.
  • (3) During the spring Chinook gillnet fishery:
  • (a) It is unlawful to use a gillnet having a mesh size less than 8 inches or more than 9-3/4 inches.
  • (b) Mesh size for the fishery is determined as described in OAR 635-042-0010(4).
  • (4) During the spring Chinook tangle net fishery:
  • (a) It is unlawful to use other than a single-wall multi-filament net. Monofilament tangle nets are not allowed. Maximum mesh size is 4 1/4 inches stretched taut. Nets not specifically authorized for use in this fishery may be onboard the 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. Other permanent gear regulations remain in effect.
  • (b) Mesh size is determined by placing three consecutive meshes under hand tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one vertical knot to the outside of the opposite vertical knot of the center mesh. Hand tension means sufficient linear tension to draw opposing knots of meshes into contact.
  • (5) Nets shall not exceed 900 feet (150 fathoms) in length. A red cork must be placed on the corkline every 25 fathoms as measured from the first mesh of the net. Red corks at 25 fathom intervals must be in color contrast to the corks used in the remainder of the net.
  • (6) On tangle nets, an optional use of a steelhead excluder panel of mesh may be hung between the corkline and the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net. The excluder panel web must be a minimum mesh size of 12 inches when stretched taut under hand tension. Monofilament mesh is allowed for the excluder panel. The excluder panel (including any associated hangings) must be a minimum of 5 linear feet in depth and not exceed 10 linear feet in depth, as measured from the corkline to the upper margin of the tangle net mesh as the net hangs naturally from a taut corkline. Weedlines or droppers (bobber-type) may be used in place of the steelhead excluder panel. A weedline-type excluder means the net is suspended below the corkline by lines of no less than five feet in length between the corkline and the upper margin of the tangle net. A dropper-type excluder means the entire net is suspended below the surface of the water by lines of no less than five feet in length extending from individual surface floats to a submersed corkline. The corkline cannot be capable of floating the net in its entirety (including the leadline) independent of the attached floats. Weedlines or droppers must extend a minimum of 5 feet above the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net.
  • (a) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, may extend to a maximum length of 1,050 feet (175 fathoms).
  • (b) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, along with a red cork every 25 fathoms as required in section (5) above, must have two red corks at each end of the net.
  • (7) There are no restrictions on the hang ratio. The hang ratio is used to horizontally add slack to the net. The hang ratio is determined by the length of the web per length of the corkline.
  • (8) There are no restrictions on the use of slackers or stringers to slacken the net vertically.
  • (9) Nets shall be fished for no longer than 45 minutes per set. The time of fishing is measured from when the first mesh of the net is deployed into the water until the last mesh of the net is fully retrieved from the water.
  • (10) It is unlawful for a net in whole or in part to be anchored, tied, staked, fixed, or attached to the bottom, shore, or a beached boat; left unattended at any time it is fished; or attended by more than one boat while being fished.
  • (11) It is unlawful to fish more than one net from a licensed commercial fishing boat at any one time.
  • (12) Nets fished from sunset to sunrise shall have lighted buoys on both ends of the net unless the net is attached to the boat then one lighted buoy on the opposite end of the net from the boat is required.
  • (13) Non-legal sturgeon, nonadipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon, and steelhead must be released immediately with care and the least possible injury to the fish to the river without violence or into an operating recovery box.
  • (a) One operating recovery box with two chambers or two operating recovery boxes with one chamber each to aid survival of released fish must be on board each fishing vessel participating in the fishery. Recovery boxes shall be operating during any time that a net is being retrieved or picked.
  • (b) Non-adipose fin-clipped salmon and all steelhead that are bleeding, in lethargic condition, or appearing dead must be placed in the recovery box for rehabilitation purposes prior to release to the river.
  • (c) Each chamber of the recovery box must meet the following dimensions as measured from within the box; the inside length measurement must be at or within 39 1/2 to 48 inches, the inside width measurement must be at or within 8 to 10 inches, and the inside height measurement must be at or within 14 to 16 inches.
  • (d) Each chamber of the recovery box must include an operating water pumping system capable of delivering a minimum flow of 16 gallons per minute not to exceed 20 gallons per minute of fresh river water into each chamber. The fisher must demonstrate to the Department and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife employees, fish and wildlife enforcement officers, or other peace officers, upon request, that the pumping system is delivering the proper volume of fresh river water into each chamber.
  • (e) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water inlet hole between 3/4 inch and 1 inch in diameter, centered horizontally across the door or wall of chamber and 1-3/4 inches from the floor of the chamber.
  • (f) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water outlet that is at least 1-1/2 inches in diameter. The center of the outlet hole must be located a minimum of 12 inches above the floor of the box or chamber, on either the same or opposite end as the inlet.
  • (g) All fish placed in recovery boxes must be released to the river prior to landing or docking.
  • (14) At least one fisher on each boat engaged in the fishery must have attended a one-day workshop hosted by the Department or Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to educate fishers on regulations and best methods for conduct of the fishery.
  • (15) Nothing in this section sets any precedent for any future spring Chinook fishery. The fact that an individual has attended a live capture training workshop does not entitle the individual to participate in any other fishery. If the Department authorizes a Live Capture fishery in the spring or at any other time, the Department may establish qualifications and requirements that are different from those already established. In particular, the Department may consider an individual’s compliance with these rules in determining that individual’s eligibility to participate in any future Live Capture fisheries.
  • (16) As authorized by OAR-635-006-0140 owners or operators of commercial fishing vessels must cooperate with Department fishery observers, or observers collecting data for the Department, when asked by the Department to carry and accommodate an observer on fishing trips for observation and sampling during an open fishery.
  • (17) Closed waters, as described in OAR 635-042-0005 for Grays River, Elokomin-B sanctuary, Abernathy Creek, Cowlitz River, Kalama-B sanctuary, and Lewis-B sanctuary are in effect during the open fishing periods identified.

  • Spring Chinook Gillnet and Tangle Net Fisheries
  • (1) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon, white sturgeon and shad may be taken by drift tangle net for commercial purposes from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to the upper commercial deadline at Beacon Rock (Zones 1–5) during the following period: Wednesday, April 6, 2011 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (6 hours).
  • (a) Individual fishing periods will not exceed sixteen hours in length during small mesh fisheries and twenty-four hours in length during large mesh fisheries. Fishing periods may occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending upon results from test fisheries or full fleet fisheries conducted prior to each specified weekday.
  • (b) White sturgeon possession and sales restrictions by each participating vessel will be determined inseason based on gear type and number of fish remaining on the fish guideline.
  • (c) Retention of green sturgeon is prohibited.
  • (d) A maximum of six adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel. The first six adult hatchery Chinook must be retained and no additional drifts may be conducted once the Chinook limit has been retained. Only adult Chinook count towards the Chinook landing limit. Adult Chinook are those greater than 24 inches total length.
  • (2) An adipose fin clip salmon is defined as a hatchery salmon with a clipped adipose fin and having a healed scar at the location of the fin. The adipose fin is the small fatty fin on salmonids located between the dorsal fin and tail.
  • (3) During the spring Chinook gillnet fishery:
  • (a) It is unlawful to use a gillnet having a mesh size less than 8 inches or more than 9 3/4 inches.
  • (b) Mesh size for the fishery is determined as described in OAR 635-042-0010(4).
  • (4) During the spring Chinook tangle net fishery:
  • (a) It is unlawful to use other than a single-wall multi-filament net. Monofilament tangle nets are not allowed. Maximum mesh size is 4-1/4 inches stretched taut.
  • (b) Mesh size is determined by placing three consecutive meshes under hand tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one vertical knot to the outside of the opposite vertical knot of the center mesh. Hand tension means sufficient linear tension to draw opposing knots of meshes into contact.
  • (5) Nets shall not exceed 900 feet (150 fathoms) in length. A red cork must be placed on the corkline every 25 fathoms as measured from the first mesh of the net. Red corks at 25 fathom intervals must be in color contrast to the corks used in the remainder of the net.
  • (6) On tangle nets, an optional use of a steelhead excluder panel of mesh may be hung between the corkline and the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net. The excluder panel web must be a minimum mesh size of 12 inches when stretched taut under hand tension. Monofilament mesh is allowed for the excluder panel. The excluder panel (including any associated hangings) must be a minimum of 5 linear feet in depth and not exceed 10 linear feet in depth, as measured from the corkline to the upper margin of the tangle net mesh as the net hangs naturally from a taut corkline. Weedlines or droppers (bobber-type) may be used in place of the steelhead excluder panel. A weedline-type excluder means the net is suspended below the corkline by lines of no less than five feet in length between the corkline and the upper margin of the tangle net. A dropper-type excluder means the entire net is suspended below the surface of the water by lines of no less than five feet in length extending from individual surface floats to a submersed corkline. The corkline cannot be capable of floating the net in its entirety (including the leadline) independent of the attached floats. Weedlines or droppers must extend a minimum of 5 feet above the 4 1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net.
  • (a) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, may extend to a maximum length of 1,050 feet (175 fathoms).
  • (b) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, along with a red cork every 25 fathoms as required in section (5) above, must have two red corks at each end of the net.
  • (7) There are no restrictions on the hang ratio. The hang ratio is used to horizontally add slack to the net. The hang ratio is determined by the length of the web per length of the corkline.
  • (8) There are no restrictions on the use of slackers or stringers to slacken the net vertically.
  • (9) Nets shall be fished for no longer than 45 minutes per set. The time of fishing is measured from when the first mesh of the net is deployed into the water until the last mesh of the net is fully retrieved from the water.
  • (10) It is unlawful for a net in whole or in part to be anchored, tied, staked, fixed, or attached to the bottom, shore, or a beached boat; left unattended at any time it is fished; or attended by more than one boat while being fished.
  • (11) It is unlawful to fish more than one net from a licensed commercial fishing boat at any one time.
  • (12) Nets fished from sunset to sunrise shall have lighted buoys on both ends of the net unless the net is attached to the boat then one lighted buoy on the opposite end of the net from the boat is required.
  • (13) Non-legal sturgeon, non-retained Chinook salmon, and steelhead must be released immediately with care and the least possible injury to the fish to the river without violence or into an operating recovery box.
  • (a) One operating recovery box with two chambers or two operating recovery boxes with one chamber each to aid survival of released fish must be on board each fishing vessel participating in the fishery. Recovery boxes shall be operating during any time that a net is being retrieved or picked.
  • (b) All non-retained salmon and all steelhead that are bleeding, in lethargic condition, or appearing dead must be placed in the recovery box for rehabilitation purposes prior to release to the river.
  • (c) Each chamber of the recovery box must meet the following dimensions as measured from within the box; the inside length measurement must be at or within 39-1/2 to 48 inches, the inside width measurement must be at or within 8 to 10 inches, and the inside height measurement must be at or within 14 to 16 inches.
  • (d) Each chamber of the recovery box must include an operating water pumping system capable of delivering a minimum flow of 16 gallons per minute not to exceed 20 gallons per minute of fresh river water into each chamber. The fisher must demonstrate to the Department and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife employees, fish and wildlife enforcement officers, or other peace officers, upon request, that the pumping system is delivering the proper volume of fresh river water into each chamber.
  • (e) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water inlet hole between 3/4 inch and 1 inch in diameter, centered horizontally across the door or wall of chamber and 1-3/4 inches from the floor of the chamber.
  • (f) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water outlet that is at least 1-1/2 inches in diameter. The center of the outlet hole must be located a minimum of 12 inches above the floor of the box or chamber, on either the same or opposite end as the inlet.
  • (g) All fish placed in recovery boxes must be released to the river prior to landing or docking.
  • (14) At least one fisher on each boat engaged in the fishery must have attended a one-day workshop hosted by the Department or Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to educate fishers on regulations and best methods for conduct of the fishery.
  • (15) Nothing in this section sets any precedent for any future spring Chinook fishery. The fact that an individual has attended a live capture training workshop does not entitle the individual to participate in any other fishery. If the Department authorizes a Live Capture fishery in the spring or at any other time, the Department may establish qualifications and requirements that are different from those already established. In particular, the Department may consider an individual’s compliance with these rules in determining that individual’s eligibility to participate in any future Live Capture fisheries.
  • (16) As authorized by OAR-635-006-0140 owners or operators of commercial fishing vessels must cooperate with Department fishery observers, or observers collecting data for the Department, when asked by the Department to carry and accommodate an observer on fishing trips for observation and sampling during an open fishery.
  • (17) Closed waters, as described in OAR 635-042-0005 for Grays River, Elokomin-B, Abernathy Creek, Cowlitz River, Kalama-B, Lewis-B, Sandy, and Washougal sanctuaries are in effect during the open fishing periods identified.
