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. Mauri 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, Wami tilapia O. urolepsis, Blackchin tilapia Sarotherodon melanotheron, 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 intending to sell, barter or exchange must apply for and receive an approved propagation license from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Fish Propagation Program prior to commencing production. A person may raise tilapia in-doors (a house, greenhouse, or other enclosed structure capable of excluding predators) for personal consumption without an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife-Fish Propagation license;

(B) Propagation outdoors must occur in ponds or tanks 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.

(c) Tiger muskellunge (Esox lucius X Esox masquinongy): tiger muskellunge are classified as a controlled species for the specific purpose of stocking into Phillips Reservoir (Baker County) for fish management purposes according to the following restrictions and standards:

(A)(i) Stocking will occur only in Phillips Reservoir located in Baker County. No other public or private water bodies will be stocked with tiger muskellunge unless approved by the Commission.

(ii) Tiger muskellunge will be stocked into Phillips Reservoir at a rate not to exceed the adult

density required to achieve the objectives of the introduction; control abundance of yellow perch to restore the rainbow trout fishery.

(B) Tiger muskellunge may only be obtained and imported from approved suppliers outside of Oregon. Tiger muskellunge may not be propagated or held for further distribution within Oregon. Department pathologists shall approve suppliers. Approval will be based on the ability to provide tiger muskellunge which meet health and disease requirements according to OAR 635-007-0960 through 635-007-0995

(C) Allowable catch and release only based on management objectives.

(D) Department will establish a monitoring plan and program prior to release which shall include:

(i) Creel monitor.

(ii) Population monitoring.

(iii) Plans to eradicate or suppress any illegal introductions of pike or muskellunge introductions to Phillips Reservoir.

(iv) Education and outreach.

(E) In conjunction with fish monitoring activities all live tiger muskellunge handled of suitable marking size shall be tagged with a Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tag. Each tag shall be programmed with identification number. A list of the PIT tag identification numbers shall be maintained by the District Fish Biologist and submitted to the Invasive Species Wildlife Integrity Coordinator.

(F) Any permit(s) or documentation(s) required for fish import, transport, or stocking shall be obtained prior to and accompany importation and stocking.

(G)(i) Department will develop an environmental monitoring plan for Phillips Reservoir which should include:

(ii) Basic limnological characterization of the reservoir (nutrient concentrations, light penetration, Mauri vertical profiles of physical and chemical characteristics of reservoir water, zooplankton, and phytoplankton composition and densities).

(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.

Rules Amended: 635-042-0022

Subject: This amended rule allows a non-Indian commercial spring Chinook fishery in the mainstem Columbia River to commence on April 1, 2014 from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Beacon Rock (Zones 1 thru 5). The authorized fishing period is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday April 1, 2014 (8 hours). Modifications were made consistent with Joint State Action taken March 31, 2014 at a meeting of the Columbia River Compact agencies of the states of Oregon and Washington.

Spring Chinook Gillnet and Tangle Net Fisheries

(1) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon,and shad may be taken by tangle net for commercial purposes from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Beacon Rock (Zones 1 5) during the period: Tuesday April 1, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (8 hours).

(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 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.

(4) 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.

(5) 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.

(6) 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.

(7) There are no restrictions on the use of slackers or stringers to slacken the net vertically.

(8) 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.

(9) 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 arbleeding, 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.

(10) 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.

(11) 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.

(12) 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. In addition, cooperation with department personel prior to a fishing period is expected.

(13) 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.

Spring Sport Fishery

(1) The 2014 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 2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) The Columbia River is open from March 1 through April 14, 2014, except closed Tuesday March 25, Tuesday April 1, and Tuesday April 8 from the mouth at Buoy 10 upstream to Beacon Rock (boat and bank) plus bank angling only from Beacon Rock upstream to the Bonneville Dam deadline with the following restrictions:
