Spring Chinook Gillnet and Tangle Net Fisheries

(1) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook, sockeye salmon, white sturgeon and shad may be taken by drift net for commercial purposes from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Kelley Point (Zones 1 3 and part of Zone 4 on Wednesday, May 18 from 5:00 p.m. to Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 5:00 a.m. (12 hours).

(a) Individual fishing periods will not exceed sixteen hours in length during small mesh fisheries.

(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.

Youngs Bay Salmon Season

(1) Salmon, white sturgeon, and shad may be taken for commercial purposes in those waters of Youngs Bay. From 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 18 through midnight Sunday, May 22, 2011 retention of non-adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon is prohibited (104 hours).

(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: 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; April 27 through May 16, 2011; and Monday and Thursday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. (12 hours) beginning May 19 through June 10, 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 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 downstream of the Highway 4 Bridge at Stephen’s dock.

Procedures for Issuance and Enforcement of Parking Permits for Department Wildlife Areas

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife hereby adopts the following procedures relating to issuance and enforcement of parking permits for certain vehicles in Department Wildlife Area parking areas:

(1) Parking is permitted only in designated parking areas. A parking permit is required at all times for all fee parking areas.

(2) Fee parking areas are designated by the following signs:

(a) “Entering ODFW Wildlife Area — Parking Permit Required Beyond This Point”;

(b) “Parking allowed only in designated areas — ODFW Wildlife Area Parking Permit Required”.

(3) There are two separate permits: an annual permit and a daily permit.

(4) The fee for parking permits is $5.00 (plus $2.00 agent fee) for permits issued on a daily basis or $20.00 (plus $2.00 agent fee) for permits issued on an annual basis beginning each January 1. Beginning with 2012 licenses, any annual hunting license (including Combination and Sports Pac) will include a free annual parking permit.

(5) Permits are issued by selected local agents, Department offices that sell licenses and the Department’s Online License Sales website to a party upon payment and may be transferred from vehicle to vehicle.

(6) The permits must be visible from outside the vehicle and be displayed in the front or rear window of the vehicle.

(7) No parking permits will be required for those vehicles which are owned or operated by government agencies. Notwithstanding paragraph (5), the Department reserves the right to issue free administrative parking permits for private vehicles used by volunteers while participating in official Department-related activities. Parking permits will not be required for individuals arriving in private vehicles to address fire, health or safety emergencies.

(8)(a) A person who operates or parks a motor-propelled vehicle in violation of restrictions established and posted under OAR 635-008-0146 through 635-008-0151 commits an offense punishable as provided in ORS 496.992;

(b) The procedure for a peace officer (or other person authorized to enforce the wildlife laws) to follow upon finding a non government vehicle parked in a designated fee parking area without a permit shall consist of the issuance of a citation which shall be either delivered to the defendant or placed in a conspicuous place upon the vehicle in the violation.

Rules Amended: 635-023-0125

Rules Suspended: 635-023-0125(T)

Subject: This amended rule opens the Columbia River: 1) from the Rocky Point/Tongue Point line upstream to Bonneville Dam from May 27 through June 15, 2011; and 2) from the Tower Island power lines upstream to the Oregon/Washington border plus bank angling between Bonneville Dam and the Tower Island power lines from May 28 through June 2, 2011. Retention of sockeye, adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead is allowed. Daily bag limit includes up to two adult salmonids (including sockeye). Revisions are consistent with action taken May 25, 2011 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

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) The mainstem Columbia River is open:

(a) May 15 through May 26, 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;

(b) May 27 through June 15, 2011 from Rocky Point/Tongue Point upstream to Bonneville Dam (boat and bank angling);

(c) May 28 through June 2, 2011 (6 days) from Tower Island power lines (approx. 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.

(d) Retention of sockeye, adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead is allowed. Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped salmon/steelhead per day in combination, of which only one may be a Chinook downstream of Bonneville Dam. Sockeye salmon count towards the adult limit regardless of size; and

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

(5) 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.

Harvest Guideline

(1) The Pacific sardine commercial fishery in Oregon is managed by the federal government and the State of Oregon. This rule incorporates, by reference:

(a) Code of Federal Regulations, Title 50 Part 660, Subpart I (October 1, 2010 ed.) as amended; and

(b) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 101, dated May 25, 2011 (76 FR 30276).

(2) Therefore, persons must consult all publications referenced in this rule in addition to Oregon Administrative Rules to determine all applicable sardine fishing requirements. Where regulations refer to the fishery management area, that area is extended from shore to three nautical miles from shore coterminous with the Exclusive Economic Zone.

(3) For the purposes of permit renewal in OAR 635-006-1075 the federal coastwide maximum harvest guideline referenced in section (1) above is 50,526 metric tons.

Rule Caption: Trask River Closure From Gold Creek, at Hatchery, Delayed Until July 1, 2011.

Adm. Order No.: DFW 57-2011(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 5-27-2011

Certified to be Effective: 6-1-11 thru 6-30-11

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-014-0090

Subject: These rule modifications delay the closure of the Trask River from Gold Creek, at the hatchery, from June 1, 2011 until July 1, 2011. Angling for spring Chinook in the Trask River has been especially productive during the early part of the run this year. In order to allow anglers this opportunity to harvest hatchery spring Chinook, we need to extend the angling season at the hatchery 200 feet upstream and 900 feet downstream.

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-023-0125

Rules Suspended: 635-023-0125(T)

Subject: This amended rule extends the recreational spring Chinook fishery in the Columbia River from the Tower Island power lines (above Bonneville Dam) upstream to the Oregon/Washington border, plus bank angling between Bonneville Dam and the Tower Island power lines, from the original closure date of June 2 through June 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 salmonids (including sockeye). Revisions are consistent with action taken June 1, 2011 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

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) The mainstem Columbia River is open:

(a) May 15 through May 26, 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;

(b) May 27 through June 15, 2011 from Rocky Point/Tongue Point upstream to Bonneville Dam (boat and bank angling);

(c) May 28 through June 15, 2011 (19 days) from Tower Island power lines (approx. 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.

(d) Retention of sockeye, adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead is allowed. Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped salmon/steelhead per day in combination, of which only one may be a Chinook downstream of Bonneville Dam. Sockeye salmon count towards the adult limit regardless of size; and

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

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

Purpose and General Information

(1) The purpose of these rules is to establish season dates, bag limits, areas and other restrictions for bow and muzzleloader hunting and controlled deer and elk youth hunts; pursuant to ORS Chapter 496.

(2) Controlled hunt tag numbers for 2011 for deer and elk bow and muzzleloader hunting and deer and elk youth hunts are listed in Tables 1 and 2 and are adopted and incorporated into OAR chapter 635, division 073 by reference.

(3) OAR chapter 073 incorporates, by reference, the requirements for bow and muzzleloader hunting and controlled deer and elk youth hunts set out in the document entitled “2011 Oregon Big Game Regulations,” into Oregon Administrative Rules. Therefore, persons must consult the “2011 Oregon Big Game Regulations,” in addition to OAR chapter 635, to determine all applicable requirements for bow and muzzleloader hunting and controlled deer and elk youth hunts. The annual Oregon Big Game Regulations are available at hunting license agents and regional, district and headquarters offices and website of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Rule Caption: Lower Umatilla River Spring Chinook Salmon Fishery Extended Through June 30, 2011.

Adm. Order No.: DFW 64-2011(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 6-10-2011

Certified to be Effective: 6-13-11 thru 9-1-11

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-019-0090

Rules Suspended: 635-019-0090(T)

Subject: Amended rule extends the lower Umatilla River spring Chinook salmon fishery, set in permanent rule to run through June 12, until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, June 30, 2011. This allows recreational anglers opportunities to harvest excess returning hatchery spring Chinook salmon in an area from the Highway 730 Bridge upstream to Three Mile Dam. This extension was made possible because harvest rates have been very low and harvest allocations remain available from this year’s Umatilla River spring Chinook run. In addition, broodstock and natural production needs have already been met. The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) co-manage this fishery and operational plans for the species.

Summer 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) Notwithstanding all other specifications and restrictions in the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations:

(a) Effective June 16 through July 31 the mainstem Columbia River is open to the retention of adipose fin-clipped jack Chinook, adipose fin-clipped adult Chinook and sockeye salmon from the Astoria-Megler Bridge upstream to the Oregon/Washington border.

(b) The combined daily bag limit for adult salmon and steelhead is two fish. Only adipose fin-clipped Chinook and steelhead may be retained. Sockeye salmon count towards the adult limit regardless of size.

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

Disposition of Wildlife

(1) Any wildlife, carcasses, or parts of wildlife from Oregon held under a Wildlife Rehabilitation Permit remain the property of the State of Oregon (through the Department) and nothing in these rules may be construed as granting any ownership interest to a wildlife rehabilitator or any other person. Wildlife held under a Wildlife Rehabilitation Permit cannot be sold, traded, bartered, transferred, loaned or exchanged unless otherwise authorized in writing by the local Department district wildlife biologist.

(2) To avoid habituation of rehabilitated animals, a holder of a Wildlife Rehabilitation Permit must minimize contact between humans and wildlife undergoing rehabilitation, including at least the following requirements:

(a) Human contact must be limited to the rehabilitation facility staff to the extent necessary for adequate rehabilitation care;

(b) Wildlife must not be habituated to humans or treated as pets;

(c) Wildlife must not be placed in view of the public. However, it is acceptable to make use of a remote video camera;

(d) Rehabilitation facilities must be located in areas separate from day to day human and domestic animal activity. Outdoor facilities must have visual barriers separating wildlife, humans and domestic animals;

(e) No permittee may possess an imprinted or habituated animal. If the permittee comes into possession of an imprinted or habituated animal, the permittee must either surrender the animal to the Department for placement in an approved facility or euthanize it, as directed by the Department.

(3) A permittee must release rehabilitated wildlife:

(a) When the wildlife reaches physical maturity and is capable of self maintenance or has attained adequate recovery from injury or illness;

(b) At a time of year appropriate for optimum species survivability;

(c) Within suitable habitat close to the point of origin, with prior approval from the local Department district wildlife biologist.

(4) Unless otherwise authorized by the local Department district wildlife biologist, a permittee may not hold wildlife for rehabilitation longer than 180 days. If a permittee or the Department determines that an individual is incapable of survival in the wild, the permittee must either euthanize the individual or (if directed by the Department) provide the individual to an AZA-accredited institution, educational organization or institution.

(5) If a permittee has possession of wildlife that, after medical attention, is unable to feed, move, or stand to conduct normal life support functions to survive in the wild, the permit must (unless otherwise directed by the Department ) euthanize the wildlife.

(6) A permittee must bury or incinerate any wildlife in its possession that has died due to poisoning or infectious disease. As to any other wildlife in its possession that dies, the permittee must dispose of the wildlife by burying, incineration, use as food for other rehabilitated wildlife, or (if appropriate permits have been obtained) retained for educational purposes. Any wildlife chemically euthanized must be buried or incinerated to avoid secondary toxicity by scavenging animals. Notwithstanding these restrictions, the local Department district wildlife biologist may approve in writing the disposal of wildlife carcasses to institutions, museums, licensed rendering facilities, or other persons possessing the appropriate permits. A permittee may retain feathers of migratory birds for use in repair of broken wing and tail feathers (imping) or for educational purposes if authorized by the appropriate permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Facility Requirements

(1) A holder of a Wildlife Rehabilitation Permit (and any subpermittee) must maintain wildlife held for rehabilitation in a humane manner by:

(a) Providing a level of care meeting the Minimum Standards set by The International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council/National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association (IWRC/NWRA) in 2000. This is to prevent distress from captivity, injury, sickness, neglect or disease and be used as guidelines for the care and housing of rehabilitated wildlife which, at the minimum, include but is not limited to the following;

(A) Appropriate food for each species and water of sufficient quantity and quality to allow for normal growth, healing, or maintenance of body weight shall be provided;

(B) Shelter sufficient to protect from adverse elements, protect from predators, to prevent escape, and injury. Any other requirement particular to the survival of the animal shall also be provided;

(C) Sufficient space for exercise necessary for the health, rehabilitation and eventual release of the animal shall be provided;

(D) Confinement areas shall be cleaned and kept free from excess food or fecal waste or other contaminants which could affect the health of the animal;

(E) Wildlife under rehabilitation will be maintained in a separate enclosure from regular human or domestic animal activity. Outdoor facilities must have visual barriers or adequate distance between wildlife and humans and domestic animals to prevent psychological and physical stress or habituation to caregivers;

(F) Wildlife may not be restrained with a chain, rope, tape, hobbles or similar holding devices except for jesses used for holding raptors and during procedures required for safe handling.

(2) The Wildlife Rehabilitation Permit holder may receive from the Department and possess at the wildlife rehabilitation facility dead wildlife for the purpose of feeding wildlife being rehabilitated.
