Spring Chinook Gillnet and Tangle Net Fisheries

(1) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon, white sturgeon and shad may be taken by gillnet for commercial purposes from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Beacon Rock (Zones 1-5) during the period: Wednesday, May 22 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Thursday, May 23, 2013 (12 hours).

(a) Individual fishing periods will not exceed sixteen hours in length during small mesh fisheries and twenty-four hours in length during large mesh fisheries.

(b) A maximum of five (5) white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fishery is open. The weekly white sturgeon sales limit applies to the mainstem Columbia River only. Select Area fisheries remain under a two white sturgeon weekly retention limit.

(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. Monofilament 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 for the fishery is determined as described in OAR 635-042-0010(4).

(4) During the spring Chinook tangle net fishery:

(a) It is unlawful to use other than a single-wall multi-filament net. Monofilament tangle nets are not allowed. Maximum mesh size is 4 1/4 inches stretched taut.

(b) Mesh size is determined by placing three consecutive meshes under hand tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one vertical knot to the outside of the opposite vertical knot of the center mesh. Hand tension means sufficient linear tension to draw opposing knots of meshes into contact.

(5) Nets shall not exceed 900 feet (150 fathoms) in length. A red cork must be placed on the corkline every 25 fathoms as measured from the first mesh of the net. Red corks at 25 fathom intervals must be in color contrast to the corks used in the remainder of the net.

(6) On tangle nets, an optional use of a steelhead excluder panel of mesh may be hung between the corkline and the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net. The excluder panel web must be a minimum mesh size of 12 inches when stretched taut under hand tension. Monofilament mesh is allowed for the excluder panel. The excluder panel (including any associated hangings) must be a minimum of 5 linear feet in depth and not exceed 10 linear feet in depth, as measured from the corkline to the upper margin of the tangle net mesh as the net hangs naturally from a taut corkline. Weedlines or droppers (bobber-type) may be used in place of the steelhead excluder panel. A weedline-type excluder means the net is suspended below the corkline by lines of no less than five feet in length between the corkline and the upper margin of the tangle net. A dropper-type excluder means the entire net is suspended below the surface of the water by lines of no less than five feet in length extending from individual surface floats to a submersed corkline. The corkline cannot be capable of floating the net in its entirety (including the leadline) independent of the attached floats. Weedlines or droppers must extend a minimum of 5 feet above the 4 1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net.

(a) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, may extend to a maximum length of 1,050 feet (175 fathoms).

(b) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, along with a red cork every 25 fathoms as required in section (5) above, must have two red corks at each end of the net.

(7) There are no restrictions on the hang ratio. The hang ratio is used to horizontally add slack to the net. The hang ratio is determined by the length of the web per length of the corkline.

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

(9) Nets shall be fished for no longer than 45 minutes per set. The time of fishing is measured from when the first mesh of the net is deployed into the water until the last mesh of the net is fully retrieved from the water.

(10) It is unlawful for a net in whole or in part to be anchored, tied, staked, fixed, or attached to the bottom, shore, or a beached boat; left unattended at any time it is fished; or attended by more than one boat while being fished.

(11) It is unlawful to fish more than one net from a licensed commercial fishing boat at any one time.

(12) Nets fished from sunset to sunrise shall have lighted buoys on both ends of the net unless the net is attached to the boat then one lighted buoy on the opposite end of the net from the boat is required.

(13) Non-legal sturgeon, 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) All salmon and steelhead that are bleeding, in lethargic condition, or appearing dead must be placed in the recovery box for rehabilitation purposes prior to release to the river.

(c) Each chamber of the recovery box must meet the following dimensions as measured from within the box; the inside length measurement must be at or within 39 1/2 to 48 inches, the inside width measurement must be at or within 8 to 10 inches, and the inside height measurement must be at or within 14 to 16 inches.

(d) Each chamber of the recovery box must include an operating water pumping system capable of delivering a minimum flow of 16 gallons per minute not to exceed 20 gallons per minute of fresh river water into each chamber. The fisher must demonstrate to the Department and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife employees, fish and wildlife enforcement officers, or other peace officers, upon request, that the pumping system is delivering the proper volume of fresh river water into each chamber.

(e) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water inlet hole between 3/4 inch and 1 inch in diameter, centered horizontally across the door or wall of chamber and 1-3/4 inches from the floor of the chamber.

(f) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water outlet that is at least 1-1/2 inches in diameter. The center of the outlet hole must be located a minimum of 12 inches above the floor of the box or chamber, on either the same or opposite end as the inlet.

(g) All fish placed in recovery boxes must be released to the river prior to landing or docking.

(14) At least one fisher on each boat engaged in the fishery must have attended a one-day workshop hosted by the Department or Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to educate fishers on regulations and best methods for conduct of the fishery.

(15) Nothing in this section sets any precedent for any future spring Chinook fishery. The fact that an individual has attended a live capture training workshop does not entitle the individual to participate in any other fishery. If the Department authorizes a Live Capture fishery in the spring or at any other time, the Department may establish qualifications and requirements that are different from those already established. In particular, the Department may consider an individual’s compliance with these rules in determining that individual’s eligibility to participate in any future Live Capture fisheries.

(16) As authorized by OAR-635-006-0140 owners or operators of commercial fishing vessels must cooperate with Department fishery observers, or observers collecting data for the Department, when asked by the Department to carry and accommodate an observer on fishing trips for observation and sampling during an open fishery.

(17) Closed waters, as described in OAR 635-042-0005 for Grays River, Elokomin-B, Abernathy Creek, Cowlitz River, Kalama-B, Lewis-B, Sandy and Washougal sanctuaries are in effect during the open fishing periods identified.

Lethal Take Authority for Confirmed Wolf Depredation from January 28, 2013 Through May 15, 2013

Upon filing of this temporary rule, and regardless of any other provisions and future amendments to Oregon Administrative Rules chapter 635, division 0110-0010, ODFW confirmed depredations from January 28, 2013 through May 15, 2013 may be considered qualifying depredations for purposes of lethal take authority for a period of 6 months from the date of confirmation, up to a maximum of three qualifying depredations. For any pack of wolves responsible for three or more depredations between January 28, 2013 and May 15, 2013, any additional ODFW confirmed depredation(s) may qualify provided the following have been met:

(1) The owner or legal occupant of the land on which a depredation occurred has removed, treated or disposed of all intentionally placed or known and reasonably accessible unnatural attractants of potential wolf-livestock conflict, such as bone or carcass piles or disposals sites; and

(2) The owner or legal occupant of the land has been implementing at least one non-lethal measure that is specific to the location, type of livestock operation, time of year, and/or period of livestock production associated with the depredation. Upon determining that the above requirements have been met, ODFW may implement lethal take authority on or before November 15, 2013, provided that there have been 4 qualifying depredations within the previous 6 months by the same wolf or wolves.

Rules Amended: 635-110-0010, 635-110-0020

Subject: Amend rules to change process and thresholds for use of lethal force to respond to chronic wold depredation.

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

635-110-0010

Harassment and Take of Wolves during Phase I (Conservation)

NOTE: As of October 1, 2010, these rules are pre-empted by the endangered status of the gray wolf under the federal Endangered Species Act. Once federal protections are reduced to a level below that of Oregon law, these rules will govern harassment and take of wolves in Oregon.

(1) This rule describes the types of harassment and take of wolves allowed by persons outside ODFW (or ODFW or Wildlife Services acting as their agent) during Phase I — (Conservation: 0–4 breeding pairs) as called for in chapter III of the Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan. Other chapters of the Plan authorize ODFW to take wolves for other specified wildlife management purposes. For OAR 635-110-0010, 635-110-0020 and 635-110-0030, “livestock” means horses, jackasses, cattle, llamas, alpacas, sheep, goats, swine, domesticated fowl, any fur-bearing animal bred and maintained (commercially or otherwise) within pens, cages and hutches, bison and working dogs. “Working dogs” means guarding dogs and herding dogs.

(2) Non-injurious harassment.

(a) Subject to the conditions specified in paragraph (c), the following persons may use non-injurious harassment against wolves without a permit:

(A) Livestock producers (or their agents) on land they own or lawfully occupy; or

(B) Grazing permittees legally using public land under valid livestock grazing allotments.

(b) Non-injurious harassment means scaring off a wolf (or wolves) without doing bodily harm, and includes (but is not limited to) firing shots in the air, making loud noises or otherwise confronting the wolf (or wolves).

(c) Non-injurious harassment is allowed without a permit under this rule only if:

(A) The wolf (or wolves) is in the act of testing or chasing livestock, is attempting to test or chase livestock or is in close proximity of livestock;

(B) The person encounters the wolf (or wolves) unintentionally (i.e., the person is not stalking or searching for wolves);

(C) The harassment in fact does not result in injury to the wolf (or wolves); and

(D) The harassment is reported to ODFW within 48 hours.

(d) Any non-injurious harassment that does not meet each requirement of this rule requires a permit in advance from ODFW.

(3) Non-lethal injurious harassment.

(a) Subject to the conditions specified in paragraph (c), in addition to state or state authorized agents, the following persons may use non-lethal injurious harassment against wolves by permit:

(A) Livestock producers (or their agents) on land they own or lawfully occupy;

(B) Grazing permittees legally using public land under valid livestock grazing allotments.

(b) Non-lethal injurious harassment means scaring off a wolf (or wolves) without killing but with some injury to the wolf. Wolves may be pursued (unintentional encounters are not required).

(c) Non-lethal injurious harassment is allowed by permit from ODFW only if:

(A) ODFW confirms wolf depredation on livestock or other wolf-livestock conflict in the area. “Other wolf-livestock conflict” means loitering near, testing, chasing, or otherwise disrupting livestock;

(B) The applicant confers with ODFW to determine the most effective harassment method;

(C) ODFW considers the location of known den sites;

(D) The harassment in fact does not result in the death of a wolf;

(E) No identified circumstance exists that attracts wolf/livestock conflict; and

(F) The harassment is reported to ODFW within 48 hours.

(d) Permits for non-lethal injurious harassment remain valid for the livestock grazing season in which issued, provided the livestock operator complies with all applicable laws, including permit conditions. The agency shall inform harassment permit holders of non-lethal methods for minimizing wolf-livestock conflict and provide assistance upon request. Receiving future lethal control permits is contingent upon documentation of efforts to use non-lethal methods.

(4) Relocation. ODFW will authorize relocation by state personnel when a wolf (or wolves) becomes inadvertently involved in a situation, or is present in an area, that could result in conflict with humans or harm to the wolf, provided that ODFW has no reason to believe that the wolf actually attacked or killed livestock or pets. The relocation will be designed to prevent conflict with humans or reduce the possibility of harm to the wolf. The wolf (or wolves) would be relocated to suitable habitat at the direction of ODFW.

(5) Lethal take of wolves in the act of attacking livestock.

(a) Subject to the conditions specified in paragraph (c) and with a permit from ODFW, the following persons may use lethal force against wolves in the act of attacking livestock:

(A) Livestock producers (or their agents) on land they own or lawfully occupy; or

(B) Grazing permittees using public land.

(b) A wolf is “in the act of attacking livestock” if it is biting, wounding or killing livestock.

(c) Lethal force is allowed by permit from ODFW only if:

(A) ODFW confirms that wolves previously have wounded or killed livestock in the area and efforts to prevent or resolve the problem have been deemed ineffective;

(B) The wolf is seen in the act of attacking, not testing or scavenging;

(C) There is fresh evidence of the attack (e.g., visible wounds, tracks demonstrating a chase occurred);

(D) The wolf carcass is not removed or disturbed;

(E) The use of lethal force is reported to ODFW or Wildlife Services within 24 hours;

(F) No identified circumstance exists that attracts wolf/livestock conflict;

(G) ODFW confirms that the wound was caused by a wolf (or wolves): and

(H) Throughout the term of the permit, the permit holder implements non-lethal actions to minimize or avoid wolf-livestock conflict.

NOTE: The Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan calls for allowing lethal take of wolves in this situation without a permit on private land. However, the Plan recognizes that because current statute requires a permit, implementing this portion of the Plan depends upon amendment of the statute by the legislature. Should the legislature make that statutory change, the Commission will amend this rule to allow for take without permit.

(6) Lethal take to address chronic livestock depredation. ODFW may authorize its personnel or authorized agents to use lethal force on a wolf or wolves it reasonably believes are responsible for chronic depredation upon livestock where each of the conditions in subsections (7) through (10) of this rule is satisfied. ODFW shall limit lethal force to the wolf or wolves it deems necessary to address the chronic depredation situation

(7) Conditions for Lethal Take by ODFW. ODFW’s discretionary authority for use of lethal force pursuant to this rule may be exercised if ODFW:

(a) Designates an Area of Known Wolf Activity, the boundary of which may be adjusted as new data or information become available;

(b) Upon the designation of an Area of Known Wolf Activity, coordinates in a timely manner with potentially affected livestock producers and other relevant interests to provide information on:

(A) The provisions of the Oregon Wolf Conservation & Management Plan and associated rules,

(B) The current state of knowledge of wolf behavior, management, and conservation,

(C) Procedures for documenting and reporting wolf activity to ODFW, including depredations upon livestock, and

(D) Non-lethal measures, incentives and available assistance aimed at minimizing conflicts between wolves and livestock or domestic animals in the area of known wolf activity;

(c) Confirms an incident of depredation of livestock by a wolf or wolves;

(d) Within 14 working days of ODFW’s confirmation of the first incident of depredation in an area:

(A) Designates an Area of Depredating Wolves, the boundary of which may be adjusted as new data or information become available;

(B) Concurrent with the designation of an Area of Depredating Wolves, prepares and publicly discloses an area-specific wolf-livestock conflict deterrence plan in coordination with potentially affected landowners, livestock producers and other relevant interests. The plan shall identify appropriate non-lethal measures according to which measures are likely to be most effective in a given circumstance, including the nature of the livestock operations, habitat, and landscape conditions specific to the area, as well as particular times of the year or period of livestock production. The plan shall be based on information compiled by ODFW before and/or during the planning effort on potentially successful conflict deterrence techniques, scientific research, and available financial resources and/or partnerships that may aid in the successful implementation of the plan. ODFW may update an area-specific conflict deterrence plan as new data become available.

(e) Confirms a total of at least 4 qualifying incidents of depredation of livestock within the previous 6 months by the same wolf or wolves.

(f) Issues and makes publicly available, prior to the exercise of lethal force, a written determination by the ODFW Director or director’s designee to use lethal force to address a specified situation of chronic depredation, along with supporting findings that:

(A) The conditions of Sections (7), (8), and (9) of this rule have been satisfied;

(B) Livestock producers in the Area of Depredating Wolves have worked to reduce wolf-livestock conflict and are in compliance with wolf protection laws and the conditions of any harassment or take permits.

(C) The situation of wolf depredation upon livestock in the Area of Depredating Wolves is likely to remain chronic despite the use of additional non-lethal conflict deterrence measures; and

(D) The wolf or wolves identified for removal are those ODFW believes to be associated with the qualifying depredations, the removal of which ODFW believes will decrease the risk of chronic depredation in the Area of Depredating Wolves.

(8) Qualifying Contingencies and Counting Incidents:

(a) An incident of depredation is a single event resulting in the injury or death of one or more lawfully present livestock that is reported to ODFW for investigation, and upon investigation by ODFW or its agent(s), ODFW confirms to have been caused by a wolf or group of wolves.

(b) A qualifying incident of depredation is a confirmed incident of depredation for the purposes of this rule if:

(A) The depredation is outside of an Area of Known Wolf Activity or Area of Depredating Wolves. Only the first confirmed depredation by a wolf or wolves may count as a qualifying depredation,

(B) In an Area of Known Wolf Activity, the landowner or lawful occupant of the land where the depredation occurred had:

(i) At least seven days prior to the incident of depredation, removed, treated or disposed of all intentionally placed or known and reasonably accessible unnatural attractants of potential wolf-livestock conflict, such as bone or carcass piles or disposal sites, and

(ii) Prior to and on the day of the incident of depredation, been using at least one measure ODFW deems most appropriate from non-lethal deterrence measures identified pursuant to section (7)(b)(D) to protect calving operations, nursing cattle, sheep operations, or other reasonably protectable situations, not including open range situations. Once a confirmed depredation has occurred in an Area of Known Wolf Activity and while ODFW is in the process of designating an Area of Depredating Wolves and creating an area-specific conflict deterrence plan, only one additional confirmed depredation in an area may count as a qualifying depredation under this subsection.

(C) In an Area of Depredating Wolves, the landowner or lawful occupant of the land where the depredation occurred had:

(i) Complied with subsection (B) of this section, and

(ii) Prior to and on the day of the incident of depredation was implementing at least one non-lethal measure identified in the area-specific conflict deterrence plan developed under subsection (7)(d)(C) that is specific to the location, type of livestock operation, time of the year, and/or period of livestock production associated with the depredation. The conflict deterrence plan measure implemented by a landowner or lawful occupant must address wolf-livestock conflict in open range situations when that situation exists.

(c) Human presence, when used as a non-lethal measure under this rule, is presence which could reasonably be expected to deter wolf-livestock conflict under the circumstances and, regardless of the temporal requirements of sections (7)(b)(B) and (C) of this rule, may be considered an appropriate non-lethal measure if it:

(A) Occurs at a proximate time prior to and in an area proximate to a confirmed depredation as determined by ODFW; and

(B) Indicates a timely response to wolf location information in situations of potential wolf-livestock conflict.

(9) Transparency and Public Disclosure.

(a) Except as provided in section (c) below, prior to using lethal force to address chronic wolf depredation, and in a timely fashion, ODFW shall document and make publicly available on at least its website:

(A) The determinations and supporting findings referenced in section (7)(f) of this rule;

(B) Information including but not limited to summaries of confirmed incidents of depredation and associated depredation investigation reports, maps of areas of known wolf activity and areas of depredating wolves, including changes and amendments to those maps, and area specific conflict deterrence plans; and

(C) Documentation of measures implemented pursuant to Section 8 of this rule. In documenting the removal of unnatural attractants and implementation of conflict deterrence measures, the Department may rely upon documented personal observation and/or written statements by the owner or lawful occupant of the land where qualifying incidents of depredation have occurred that confirm the non-lethal deterrence measures being utilized prior to and at the time of the qualifying depredation.

(b) In any signed statements and other information publicly disclosed pursuant to this section, the Department shall redact from public disclosure the personal information of landowners, lawful occupants, or other relevant individuals consistent with the Oregon public records law, ORS Chapter 192.

(c) In the case where the conditions in section (7)(f) of this rule have been met but strict compliance with the public disclosure requirements of this section cannot be accomplished without a delay that impedes ODFW’s ability to pursue an immediately available opportunity to remove the wolf or wolves it reasonably believes responsible for chronic depredation prior to another depredation event on livestock, this section is deemed satisfied if, prior to the use of lethal force, ODFW:

(A) Provides email or phone notification from the ODFW Director or designee to a list of interested stakeholders communicating the findings in section (7)(f) of this rule and the Department’s intent to pursue immediate lethal action based on those findings,

(B) Has previously documented and disclosed, on at least the agency’s website, the information referenced in subsections (a)(A)-(C) of this section with respect to all but the most recent qualifying depredation that resulted in ODFW’s determination to pursue lethal action, and

(C) Provides the remaining information referenced in subsections (a)(A)–(C) of this rule in a timely manner with respect to the most recent qualifying incident that ODFW pursues with immediate lethal action.

(10) Duration of chronic depredation lethal take authority. Take authority issued pursuant to subsection (7) expires:

(a) When the wolf or wolves identified for lethal removal have been removed by ODFW or any other party.

(b) ODFW may reinstate its take authority if ODFW confirms one additional qualifying incident of depredation within two months after the last confirmed qualifying depredation by what it believes to be a member or members of the same wolf pack and non-lethal efforts specified in section (8) have continued to be implemented by the owner or lawful occupant of land where the additional depredation occurs;

(c) 45 days after issuance of the take authority and determination referenced in Section (7)(f), unless ODFW confirms, within that time period, another qualifying incident of depredation on livestock by what it believes to be the same wolf or wolves identified for lethal removal and non-lethal efforts specified in section (8) have continued to be implemented by the owner or lawful occupant of land where the additional depredation occurs; or

(d) If ODFW determines the wolf or wolves identified for lethal removal have left the Area of Depredating Wolves. To support this determination, data must show more than just a short-term or seasonal movement outside the area’s boundary.

(e) Except as allowed under subsections (b) and (c) of this Section, any subsequent authorization or reinstatement of take authority by the Department must comply with sections (7) through (9) of this rule, and must be based upon at least one additional qualifying depredation.

(11) Lethal take in the case of extreme circumstances. Notwithstanding sections (7) and (8) of this rule, ODFW may authorize the use of lethal force in extreme circumstances.

(a) Extreme circumstances means:

(A) Four or more confirmed incidents of depredation of livestock by what ODFW reasonably believes to be the same wolf or wolves within seven days;

(B) ODFW determines, based on evidence it makes publicly available, that there were no intentionally placed or known and reasonably accessible unnatural attractants such as bone or carcass piles or disposal sites that contributed to the incidents of depredation, and that non-lethal measures are and will likely remain ineffective; and

(C) ODFW finds that depredation has rapidly escalated beyond the reasonable, available means of ODFW and affected livestock owners to stop additional livestock losses from occurring.

(b) A decision to utilize lethal force authority due to extreme circumstances shall be made by the ODFW director or director’s designee, accompanied by the findings and determinations required in section (11)(a) made publically available on ODFW’s website, and exercised within 14 days of the determination to exercise lethal force authority under this section, or of the last confirmed depredation, whichever comes later.

Harassment and Take of Wolves During Phase II (Management)

NOTE: as of October 1, 2010, these rules are pre-empted by the endangered status of the gray wolf under the federal Endangered Species Act. Once federal protections are reduced to a level below that of Oregon law, these rules will govern harassment and take of wolves in Oregon.

(1) This rule describes the types of harassment and take of wolves allowed by persons outside ODFW (or ODFW or Wildlife Services acting as their agent) during Phase II — (Management: 5-7 breeding pairs) as called for in chapter III of the Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan. Other chapters of the Plan authorize ODFW to take wolves for other specified wildlife management purposes.

(2) Non-injurious harassment of wolves is allowed under the same conditions as in Phase I (OAR 635-110-0010(2)).

(3) Non-lethal injurious harassment.

(a) Non-lethal injurious harassment is allowed without a permit on private land by livestock producers or their agents on land they own or lawfully occupy. Livestock producers are encouraged to use non-injurious techniques first. There must be no identified circumstance that attracts wolf-livestock conflict, and the harassment must be reported to ODFW within 48 hours.

(b) Non-lethal injurious harassment is allowed by permit on public land by grazing permittees who are legally using public land under valid livestock grazing allotments and upon the following conditions:

(A) ODFW confirms wolf depredation on livestock or other wolf-livestock conflict in the area. “Other wolf-livestock conflict” means loitering near, testing, chasing, or otherwise disrupting livestock;

(B) ODFW considers the location of known wolf sites;

(C) There is no identified circumstance at the site which attracts wolf/livestock conflict; and

(D) The harassment is reported to ODFW within 48 hours.

(c) As to non-lethal injurious harassment on either private or public land, pursuing wolves is allowed.

(4) Relocation of wolves will be considered under the same circumstances as in Phase I (OAR 635-110-0010(4)).

(5) Lethal take of wolves in the act of attacking livestock is allowed under the same conditions as in Phase I (OAR 635-110-0010(5)).

NOTE: the Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan calls for allowing lethal take of wolves in this situation without a permit on private or public land. However, the Plan recognizes that because current statute requires a permit, implementing this portion of the Plan depends upon amendment of the statute by the legislature. Should the legislature make that statutory change, the Commission will amend this rule to allow for take without permit.

(6) Lethal take to deal with chronic depredation.

(a) ODFW may authorize its personnel, authorized agents, or Wildlife Services, to use lethal force on wolves at a property owner or permittee’s request if:

(A) ODFW confirms either:

(i) Two confirmed depredations by wolves on livestock in the area; or

(ii) One confirmed depredation followed by three attempted depredations (testing or stalking) in the area;

(B) The requester documents unsuccessful attempts to solve the situation through non-lethal means;

(C) No identified circumstance exists that attracts wolf-livestock conflict; and

(D) The requester has complied with applicable laws and the conditions of any harassment or take permit.

(b) Subject to the conditions specified in paragraph (c) and with a limited duration permit from ODFW, the following persons may use lethal force to deal with chronic depredation:

(A) Livestock producers (or their agents) on land they own or lawfully occupy; or

(B) Grazing permittees legally using public land.

(c) ODFW will issue a permit to use lethal force to deal with chronic depredation only if:

(A) ODFW confirms that the area has had at least two depredations by wolves on livestock;

(B) ODFW determines that wolves are routinely present on that property and present a significant risk to livestock;

(C) There is no identified circumstance at the site which attracts wolf/livestock conflict;

(D) The applicant is in compliance with applicable laws and the terms of any previous wolf permit;

(E) The applicant documents use of non-lethal methods; and

(F) Any wolf taken is considered property of the state and reported to ODFW within 48 hours.

(7) “Identified circumstance” means a condition which:

(a) ODFW determines, based upon its investigation of the situation, attracts wolves and fosters conflict between wolves and livestock; and

(b) ODFW advises the landowner, livestock producer or grazing permittee to remedy; but

(c) The landowner, livestock producer or grazing permittee fails to remedy.

(8) “In the area” means where ODFW has determined the presence of the depredating wolves.

Rule Caption: Trask River Angling Regulations Modified Effective June 1, 2013

Adm. Order No.: DFW 43-2013(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 5-29-2013

Certified to be Effective: 6-1-13 thru 10-31-13

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-014-0090

Rules Suspended: 635-014-0090(T)

Subject: The success of new fly-angling and bobber-angling only rules in the Trask River hatchery hole area has led the District to propose a permanent rule change for 2014 to extend the Trask River hatchery hole open period through July 15. We want anglers to have the same opportunity this spring. As such these rule modifications delay the spring Chinook fishery closure at the Trask River Hatchery Hole from June 1 until July 16, 2013 in the area between 200 feet upstream and 900 feet downstream of the hatchery.

Spring Chinook Gillnet and Tangle Net Fisheries

(1) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon, white sturgeon and shad may be taken by gillnet for commercial purposes from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Beacon Rock (Zones 1-5) during the period: Wednesday, May 29 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Thursday, May 30, 2013 (12 hours).

(a) Individual fishing periods will not exceed sixteen hours in length during small mesh fisheries and twenty-four hours in length during large mesh fisheries.

(b) A maximum of three (3) white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fishery is open. The weekly white sturgeon sales limit applies to the mainstem Columbia River only. Select Area fisheries remain under a two white sturgeon weekly retention limit.

(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. Monofilament 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 for the fishery is determined as described in OAR 635-042-0010(4).

(4) During the spring Chinook tangle net fishery:

(a) It is unlawful to use other than a single-wall multi-filament net. Monofilament tangle nets are not allowed. Maximum mesh size is 4 1/4 inches stretched taut.

(b) Mesh size is determined by placing three consecutive meshes under hand tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one vertical knot to the outside of the opposite vertical knot of the center mesh. Hand tension means sufficient linear tension to draw opposing knots of meshes into contact.

(5) Nets shall not exceed 900 feet (150 fathoms) in length. A red cork must be placed on the corkline every 25 fathoms as measured from the first mesh of the net. Red corks at 25 fathom intervals must be in color contrast to the corks used in the remainder of the net.

(6) On tangle nets, an optional use of a steelhead excluder panel of mesh may be hung between the corkline and the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net. The excluder panel web must be a minimum mesh size of 12 inches when stretched taut under hand tension. Monofilament mesh is allowed for the excluder panel. The excluder panel (including any associated hangings) must be a minimum of 5 linear feet in depth and not exceed 10 linear feet in depth, as measured from the corkline to the upper margin of the tangle net mesh as the net hangs naturally from a taut corkline. Weedlines or droppers (bobber-type) may be used in place of the steelhead excluder panel. A weedline-type excluder means the net is suspended below the corkline by lines of no less than five feet in length between the corkline and the upper margin of the tangle net. A dropper-type excluder means the entire net is suspended below the surface of the water by lines of no less than five feet in length extending from individual surface floats to a submersed corkline. The corkline cannot be capable of floating the net in its entirety (including the leadline) independent of the attached floats. Weedlines or droppers must extend a minimum of 5 feet above the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net.

(a) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, may extend to a maximum length of 1,050 feet (175 fathoms).

(b) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, along with a red cork every 25 fathoms as required in section (5) above, must have two red corks at each end of the net.

(7) There are no restrictions on the hang ratio. The hang ratio is used to horizontally add slack to the net. The hang ratio is determined by the length of the web per length of the corkline.

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

(9) Nets shall be fished for no longer than 45 minutes per set. The time of fishing is measured from when the first mesh of the net is deployed into the water until the last mesh of the net is fully retrieved from the water.

(10) It is unlawful for a net in whole or in part to be anchored, tied, staked, fixed, or attached to the bottom, shore, or a beached boat; left unattended at any time it is fished; or attended by more than one boat while being fished.

(11) It is unlawful to fish more than one net from a licensed commercial fishing boat at any one time.

(12) Nets fished from sunset to sunrise shall have lighted buoys on both ends of the net unless the net is attached to the boat then one lighted buoy on the opposite end of the net from the boat is required.

(13) Non-legal sturgeon, 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) All salmon and steelhead that are bleeding, in lethargic condition, or appearing dead must be placed in the recovery box for rehabilitation purposes prior to release to the river.

(c) Each chamber of the recovery box must meet the following dimensions as measured from within the box; the inside length measurement must be at or within 39-1/2 to 48 inches, the inside width measurement must be at or within 8 to 10 inches, and the inside height measurement must be at or within 14 to 16 inches.

(d) Each chamber of the recovery box must include an operating water pumping system capable of delivering a minimum flow of 16 gallons per minute not to exceed 20 gallons per minute of fresh river water into each chamber. The fisher must demonstrate to the Department and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife employees, fish and wildlife enforcement officers, or other peace officers, upon request, that the pumping system is delivering the proper volume of fresh river water into each chamber.

(e) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water inlet hole between 3/4 inch and 1 inch in diameter, centered horizontally across the door or wall of chamber and 1-3/4 inches from the floor of the chamber.

(f) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water outlet that is at least 1-1/2 inches in diameter. The center of the outlet hole must be located a minimum of 12 inches above the floor of the box or chamber, on either the same or opposite end as the inlet.

(g) All fish placed in recovery boxes must be released to the river prior to landing or docking.

(14) At least one fisher on each boat engaged in the fishery must have attended a one-day workshop hosted by the Department or Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to educate fishers on regulations and best methods for conduct of the fishery.

(15) Nothing in this section sets any precedent for any future spring Chinook fishery. The fact that an individual has attended a live capture training workshop does not entitle the individual to participate in any other fishery. If the Department authorizes a Live Capture fishery in the spring or at any other time, the Department may establish qualifications and requirements that are different from those already established. In particular, the Department may consider an individual’s compliance with these rules in determining that individual’s eligibility to participate in any future Live Capture fisheries.

(16) As authorized by OAR-635-006-0140 owners or operators of commercial fishing vessels must cooperate with Department fishery observers, or observers collecting data for the Department, when asked by the Department to carry and accommodate an observer on fishing trips for observation and sampling during an open fishery.

(17) Closed waters, as described in OAR 635-042-0005 for Grays River, Elokomin-B, Abernathy Creek, Cowlitz River, Kalama-B, Lewis-B, Sandy and Washougal sanctuaries are in effect during the open fishing periods identified.

Subject: This amended rule modifies the ongoing Columbia River recreational spring Chinook season that began Saturday, May 25 and runs through Saturday, June 15, 2013. Fishing is authorized in an area from Tongue Point/Rocky Point line upstream to the Bonneville Dam boat deadline (boat and bank angling). The daily bag limit is two (2) adult salmonids but only one may be a Chinook. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be kept. All sockeye must be released. Revisions are consistent with action taken June 7, 2013 by Columbia River Compact agencies of the states of Oregon and Washington.

Spring Sport Fishery

(1) The 2013 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 2013 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 or one of each may be retained per day. Catch limits for jacks remain in effect as per the 2013 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(3) The area from Tongue Point/Rocky Point line upstream to the Bonneville Dam deadline (boat and bank angling) is open from Saturday, May 25 through Saturday, June 15, 2013. Daily bag limit is two (2) adult salmonids but only one may be a Chinook. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be kept. All sockeye must be released. All other permanent regulations apply.

(4) The area from the Tower Island power lines (approximately 6 miles below The Dalles Dam) upstream to Oregon/Washington border, plus the Oregon and Washington banks between Bonneville Dam and the Tower Island power lines is open From Saturday, June 8 through Saturday, June 15, 2013. Daily bag limit is two (2) adult salmonids but only one may be a Chinook. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be kept. All sockeye must be released. All other permanent regulations apply.

(5) Select Area recreational fisheries.

(a) Effective Friday, March 1 through Saturday, June 15, 2013, on days when the mainstem Columbia River recreational fishery below Bonneville Dam is open to retention of Chinook, the salmonid bag limit in the Select Areas will be the same as mainstem Columbia River bag limits.

(b) Effective Friday, March 1 through Saturday, June 15, 2013, on days when the mainstem Columbia River recreational fishery below Bonneville Dam is closed to retention of Chinook, permanent salmonid bag regulations for the Select Areas apply.

(c) Effective January 1, 2013 use of barbless hooks is required when fishing for salmon, steelhead, and trout in the following areas:

(A) Youngs Bay/River from Highway 101 bridge upstream to markers at the confluence with Klaskanine River;

(B) Lewis and Clark River from confluence with Youngs Bay upstream to Alternate Highway 101 bridge;

(C) Walluski River from the confluence with Youngs Bay upstream to Highway 202 bridge;

(D) Gnat Creek from railroad bridge upstream to Aldrich Point Road;

(E) Knappa/Blind Slough select areas; and

(F) In the mainstem Columbia River from the mouth at Buoy 10 upstream to the Oregon/ Washington border.

(6) For the mainstem Columbia River salmon and steelhead fishery upstream of the Rocky Point-Tongue Point line to 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.

For any person owning, leasing, occupying, possessing or having charge of or dominion over any land (or an agent of this person) who is taking or attempting to take coyote, gopher, mountain beaver (boomer), marmot, nutria, or porcupine on that property, these six species are considered to be predatory animals.

(10) “Public trail” is any trail designated, maintained, mapped and marked by any state or federal land management agency on the most current official map of the agency; for the purposes of trapping, water way, water trails designated for floating craft and public roadways are not considered a “public trail”.

(11) “Trailhead”, for the purposes of trapping, is the area beginning at the sign marking the origin of a public trail or segment of trail which is designated, maintained, mapped, and marked by at least one visible sign and includes any adjacent improved graveled or paved vehicle parking lot. The standard shoulder of the road is not considered part of the trailhead. Trailheads are marked by at least one visible sign posted by the responsible state or federal land management agency and identified on the most current official map of the agency. A trailhead does not include junctions between trails (posted or not) where there is no motorized vehicle access, or intersections where a trail crosses a road, or locations where users have developed an access point, but no improvements have been provided beyond minimal signage for public safety.

(12) “Water set” is any trap or snare originally set within a permanent water source or a seasonal water source when water is present, such that at least a portion of the trap jaws or snare loop is submerged. If water levels fluctuate, any killing trap with a jaw spread of 9” or more originally set in a water set must be removed or adjusted such that at least a portion of the trap jaws or snare loop is submerged at the next required trap-check except in tidally influenced areas when set below the mean high water mark.

(13) “Land set” is any set with a trap or snare other than a water set.

(1) A landowner shall submit a landowner preference registration form to be eligible for a landowner preference tag. A one time fee of $30.00 at the time of registration for new program participants. A landowner can have only one registration form on file with the Department. However, an individual who owns (through business entities, in the individual’s own name or a combination thereof) more than one property eligible for the landowner preference program may register each such property. The registration form is an affidavit certifying ownership, number of acres owned, the county and Wildlife Management Unit where the property is located. This registration form registers the individual and remains valid until the individual registered no longer qualifies as a landowner as defined under OAR 635-045-0002, writes to the Department requesting the registration form be deleted, or the Department notifies the landowner that a renewal is required.

(2) In addition to having a landowner preference registration form on file with the Department, a landowner or an authorized designee identified by the landowner in writing to the Department shall submit a tag distribution form annually. The tag distribution form shall list the names of the landowner, stockholder(s), partner(s), and their immediate family members to receive tags for pronghorn antelope, and the names of the landowner, stockholder(s), partner(s), their immediate family members, and those persons of the landowners’ choosing to receive landowner preference tags for deer and elk.

(3) Landowners shall submit registration forms and landowners or their designee shall submit tag distribution forms prior to September 15 for all controlled 100 series buck deer and bull elk hunts, and through the day prior to the season openings for 600 series antlerless deer, antlerless elk, and doe/fawn pronghorn antelope hunts.

(4) Registration forms and tag distribution forms are available at no charge in any office of the Department.

(5) Registration forms, tag distribution forms, and applications shall be received at the Salem headquarters office of the Department prior to issuance of any landowner preference tag, except as provided for in OAR 635-075-0007. Landowners are not required to submit proof of ownership with their registration form. Landowners shall be required to submit proof of ownership at the request of the Department or the Oregon State Police acting on behalf of the Department.

(6) A landowner, stockholder(s), partner(s), and immediate family and those persons of the landowners’ choosing wishing to also apply for controlled hunt tags shall apply by the May 15 controlled hunt deadline. Listing a hunt choice other than a landowner preference choice is not required.

(7) Everyone shall follow controlled hunt application procedures and regulations as described in OAR Division 060.

(8) The number of landowner preference tags issued is based upon a landowner’s acreage. Landowner Preference tags shall be allocated by the following minimum acreage requirements:

TAGS — MINIMUM ACREAGE — HUNT TYPE

2 — 40 — all hunts except eastern Oregon buck deer, Eastern Oregon bull elk, either-sex elk, and doe/fawn pronghorn antelope hunts.

(9) Landowner preference tags for the hunting of deer or elk may be issued to any person of the landowner’s choosing, and shall be used for the taking of antlerless animals except as described in OAR 635-075-0005 (8). Season dates of the transferred landowner preference tags shall be the same dates as the original tag.

(10) Landowner preference tags for the hunting of antlered deer or elk that are issued to a person of the landowner’s choosing who is not a member of the landowner’s, partner’s, or stockholder’s immediate family may be used to take an antlered animal only as follows:

(a) If the landowner is eligible for two, three, or four preference tags, one of those tags may be so used.

(b) If the landowner is eligible for five, six or seven preference tags, two of those tags may be so used.

(c) If the landowner is eligible for eight, nine or 10 preference tags, three of those tags may be so used.

(d) If the landowner is eligible for 11 or 12 preference tags, four of those tags may be so used.

(e) If the landowner is eligible for 13 or 14 preference tags, five of those tags may be so used.

(11) A landowner who is qualified to receive landowner hunting preference tags may request two additional tags for providing public access and/or two additional tags for wildlife habitat programs. This request shall be made to the Access and Habitat Board with supporting evidence that the access is significant and the habitat programs benefit wildlife. The board may recommend that the commission grant the request. These tags may not be applied to the options as defined in OAR 635-075-0005(8).

(12) No one shall receive both a controlled hunt tag and a landowner preference tag for the same type of hunt. Landowner hunting preference tags shall not be issued to any person successful in the controlled hunt drawing for the same type of hunt.

(13) Landowner preference tags, except as described in OAR 635-075-0007, 635-075-0010, and 635-075-0015 shall only be issued from the headquarters office of the Department following the controlled hunt drawings.
