Rules Amended: 635-016-0090

Subject: This amended rule allows an increase to the daily bag limit for trout in Diamond Lake. The 2009 Diamond Lake Management Plan established management of the lake under the Basic Yield alternative (OAR 635-500-0703). Increasing the harvest of trout will help reduce potential surplus biomass accumulation in the lake and retain the high trophic community levels currently observed.

Youngs Bay Salmon Season

(1) Salmon, white sturgeon, and shad may be taken for commercial purposes in those waters of Youngs Bay.

(a) The open fishing periods are established in three segments categorized as the winter fishery, subsection (1)(a)(A); the spring fishery, subsection (1)(a)(B); and summer fishery, subsection (1)(a)(C), as follows:

(A) Winter Season:

(i) Entire Youngs Bay: Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday days from February 13 through March 10 (12 days) starting at 12:00 noon through 6:00 a.m. the following morning (18 hours).

(ii) Upstream of old Youngs Bay Bridge: 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday, March 14, 2011 (6 hours) and 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 16, 2011 (6 hours).

(C) Summer Season:

(i) Entire Youngs Bay: 6:00 a.m. Wednesdays to 6:00 a.m. Fridays (48 hours) beginning Wednesday, June 15 through Friday, July 29, 2011 (14 fishing days).

(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.

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 fishing seasons are open:

(a) Winter season: Sunday and Wednesday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours) beginning February 13 through March 20, 2011; Sunday, March 27 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours); and Sunday, April 3, 2011 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours) for 13 nights in all.

(A) From Sunday, March 27 through Monday, April 4, 2011 the authorized fishing area is reduced to extend from the Oneida Road boat ramp (approximately one-half mile up Deep River from navigation marker 16) upstream to the Highway 4 Bridge.

(b) Spring season: Sunday and Wednesday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. (12 hours) beginning April 17 through April 20, 2011; and April 27 through June 8, 2011 (15 nights).

(3) Gear restrictions are as follows:

(a) Gill nets may not exceed 100 fathoms in length and there is no weight limit on the lead line. The attachment of additional weight and 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 (or parts of 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 (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 (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 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 (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 prmit 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 downstream of the Highway 4 Bridge at Stephen’s dock.

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 April 8 through April 19, 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 May 1, 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.

(a) 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.

(1) Salmon, white sturgeon, and shad may be taken for commercial purposes in those waters of Youngs Bay.

(a) The open fishing periods are established in three segments categorized as the winter fishery, subsection (1)(a)(A); the spring fishery, subsection (1)(a)(B); and summer fishery, subsection (1)(a)(C), as follows:

(A) Winter Season:

(i) Entire Youngs Bay: Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday days from February 13 through March 10 (12 days) starting at 12:00 noon through 6:00 a.m. the following morning (18 hours).

(ii) Upstream of old Youngs Bay Bridge: 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday, March 14, 2011 (6 hours) and 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 16, 2011 (6 hours).

(B) Spring Season: Entire Youngs Bay: 6:00 p.m. to midnight Monday, April 18, 2011 (6 hours); 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Thursday, April 28 (5 hours); 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sunday, May 1, 2011 (5 hours); 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 3 to noon Wednesday, May 4, 2011 (18 hours); 6:00 p.m. Thursday, May 5 to noon Friday, May 6, 2011 (18 hours); and Mondays at noon through Fridays at noon (4 days), beginning Monday, May 9 through Friday, June 10, 2011 (20 days total).

(C) Summer Season: Entire Youngs Bay: 6:00 a.m. Wednesdays to 6:00 a.m. Fridays (48 hours) beginning Wednesday, June 15 through Friday, July 29, 2011 (14 fishing days).

(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.

Population Management

In accordance with the Wildlife Policy (ORS 496.012), the primary goal is to restore, maintain and enhance populations of greater sage-grouse such that multiple uses of populations and their habitats can continue. Regional and state population objectives shall be identified based on the best information available.

(1) Policy: Manage greater sage-grouse statewide to maintain or enhance their abundance and distribution at the 2003 spring breeding population level, approximately 30,000 birds over the next 50 years.

(2) Objectives: Consistent with the population management policy, achieve the following regional population objectives:

(a) Baker Resource Area BLM: maintain or enhance greater sage-grouse abundance and distribution at the 2003 spring breeding population level, approximately 2,000 birds.

(b) Vale District BLM excluding Baker Resource Area BLM): maintain or enhance greater sage-grouse abundance and distribution at the 2003 spring breeding population level, approximately 11,000 birds.

(c) Burns District BLM: maintain or enhance greater sage-grouse abundance and distribution at the 2003 spring breeding population level, approximately 4,300 birds.

(d) Lakeview District BLM: maintain or enhance greater sage-grouse abundance and distribution at the 2003 spring breeding population level, approximately 9,400 birds.

(e) Prineville District BLM: restore greater sage-grouse abundance and distribution near the 1980 spring breeding population level, approximately 3,000 birds.

Habitat Objectives

(1) The habitat goals are to:

(a) Maintain or enhance the distribution of sagebrush habitats within greater sage-grouse range in Oregon; and

(b) Manage those habitats in a variety of structural stages to benefit greater sage-grouse.

(2) Policy: Manage a minimum of 70% of greater sage-grouse range for sagebrush habitat in advanced structural stages, sagebrush class 3, 4 or 5, with an emphasis on classes 4 and 5. The remaining approximately 30% includes areas of juniper encroachment, non-sagebrush shrubland, and grassland and should be managed to increase available habitat within greater sage-grouse range.

(3) Objective: To maintain and enhance existing sagebrush habitats and enhance potential habitats that have been disturbed such that there is no net loss of sagebrush habitat in the following regions:

(a) Baker Resource Area BLM: 82% sagebrush and 18% disturbed habitats.

(b) Vale District BLM (excluding Baker Resource Area): 70% sagebrush and 30% disturbed habitats.

(c) Burns District BLM: 68% sagebrush and 32% disturbed habitats.

(d) Lakeview District BLM: 72% sagebrush and 28% disturbed habitats.

(e) Prineville District BLM: 47% sagebrush and 53% disturbed habitats.

Core Area Approach to Conservation

Technical terms used in this section are defined in the Glossary of the Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment and Strategy for Oregon adopted by the Commission on April 22, 2011 (copies of the plan are available through the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife).

(1) The goal of establishing core areas is to address greater sage-grouse management from a conservation biology perspective that identifies the most productive populations and habitats that meets all life history needs.

(a) Policy 1. The Department shall develop and maintain maps that identify core area habitats necessary to conserve 90% of Oregon’s greater sage-grouse population with emphasis on highest density and important use areas which provide for breeding, wintering and connectivity corridors. Objective 1. Consistent with Policy 1, the Department shall use the following criteria to define core area habitat. All sagebrush types or other habitats that support greater sage-grouse that are encompassed by areas:

(A) Of very high, high and moderate lek density strata;

(B) Where low lek density strata overlap local connectivity corridors; or

(C) Where winter habitat-use polygons overlap with either low lek density strata, connectivity corridors, or occupied habitat.

(b) Policy 2. The Department shall develop and maintain maps that identify low density habitat which provide breeding, summer, and migratory habitats of the Oregon statewide greater sage-grouse population. Objective 2. Consistent with Policy 2, the Department shall use the following criteria to define low density habitat. All sagebrush types or other habitats that support greater sage-grouse that are encompassed by areas where:

(A) Low lek density overlapped with seasonal connectivity corridors;

(B) Local corridors occurred outside of all lek density strata;

(C) Low lek density strata occur outside of connectivity corridors; or

(D) Seasonal connectivity corridors occur outside of all lek density strata.

(c) When developing and maintaining the maps referred to in paragraphs (a) and (b) the Department will use:

(A) Local Sage-Grouse Implementation Teams to evaluate the maps and refine exterior boundaries by use of aerial imagery and local knowledge of sage-grouse and sage-grouse habitat; and

(B) Best available science to further understanding of greater sage-grouse life history and conservation needs.

(2) Application of Sage Grouse Core Area and Low Density Habitat Categorizations and Conservation Recommendations.

(a) Policy 1. The Department shall follow the Fish and Wildlife Habitat Mitigation Policy (OAR 635-415-000) when defining habitat categories and providing recommendations to address potential site-level impacts to greater sage-grouse and their habitats.

(b) Policy 2. The Department recommends the following conservation guidelines, incorporated here by reference are the “Action,” “Issue” and “Conservation Guidelines” text from Section V of the Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment and Strategy for Oregon adopted by the Commission on April 22, 2011 (copies available from the Department):

(A) Wildfire;

(B) Prescribed fire;

(C) Livestock grazing;

(D) Juniper expansion;

(E) Invasive vegetation;

(F) Vegetation treatment;

(G) Realty;

(H) Energy development;

(I) Climate change;

(J) Recreation;

(K) Predation;

(L) West Nile virus; and

(M) Regulatory.

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 April 8 through April 19, 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 May 1 and May 7 through May 10, 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.

(a) 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.

Inclusions and Modifications

(1) The 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations provide requirements for the Central 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 Hood River is open from the mouth to mainstem confluence with the East Fork and the West Fork from the confluence with the mainstem upstream to the angling deadline 200 feet downstream of Punchbowl Falls to retention of:

(a) Adipose fin-clipped coho salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead from January 1 though December 31. The catch limit is two adult adipose fin-clipped salmon or steelhead per day and five adipose fin-clipped jack salmon per day, with the exception that one additional adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained per day for a total aggregate of 3 adult fish harvested daily; and

(b) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon from April 15 through June 30, 2011. The catch limit is two adult adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon per day and five adipose fin-clipped jack salmon per day.

(c) All salmon and steelhead that have not been adipose fin-clipped must be released unharmed. All other catch limits and restrictions remain unchanged from those listed for Hood River in the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(3) The Deschutes River from the mouth at the I-84 Bridge upstream to Sherars Falls is open to angling for trout, steelhead, and adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon from April 15 through July 31, 2011.

(a) The catch limit is one adult adipose fin-clipped salmon and five adipose fin-clipped jack salmon per day. All non-adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon must be released unharmed.

(b) A maximum of five white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fisheries are open. The weekly white sturgeon sales limit applies to the mainstem fishery only.

(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 drift net fishery:

(a) It is unlawful to use other than a drift net with 8-inch minimum mesh size. Monofilament tangle nets are allowed. 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.

(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.

Rules Amended: 635-023-0125

Rules Suspended: 635-023-0125(T)

Subject: This amended rule opens the Columbia River from the Rocky Point/Tongue Point line upstream to Beacon Rock (boat and bank fishing) plus bank angling only from Beacon Rock upstream to Bonneville Dam beginning on May 15, 2011. Retention of sockeye adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead is allowed. Daily bag limit includes up to two adult salmon (including sockeye) or steelhead in combination, but only one may be a Chinook. Revisions are consistent with action taken May 13, 2011 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington.

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) Effective through June 15, 2011, in Oregon and Washington Select Areas the hatchery adult Chinook daily bag limit will be the same as the adjacent mainstem Columbia River when the mainstem is open for adult Chinook retention. When the adjacent mainstem Columbia River is closed for adult retention, the salmon daily limit will revert to permanent rules.

(4)(a) The Columbia River is open May 15 through June 15, 2011 from Rocky Point/Tongue Point upstream to Beacon Rock (boat and bank angling); plus bank angling only from Beacon Rock upstream to Bonneville Dam. Legal boundary for Beacon Rock is defined as: “A line projected from a sign posted on a dock on the Oegon shoreline across to the exposed downstream end of Pierce Island, then acros to a sign posted on the Washington shoreline at Beacon Rock.” Retention of sockeye, adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead is allowed. Sockeye salmon count towards the adult limit regardless of size.

(b) Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped salmon/steelhead per day in combination, of which only one may be a Chinook.

(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.
