Subject: These amended rules extend, by four additional days, the open commercial shad seasons on the Columbia River in the Area 2S and Camas-Washougal Reef fisheries. The Area 2S fishery is open daily from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. while the Camas-Washougal Reef fishery is open daily from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 Midnight; both fisheries begin Tuesday June 21 through Friday June 24, 2011. Only shad may be kept or sold. All other fish must be immediately returned unharmed to the water. Modifications allow harvest using experimental gear when purchasing an Experimental Fishing Gear Permit as described in OAR 635-006-0020. Revisions are consistent with action taken on June 16, 2011 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington.

Subject: Rule modifications set a Treaty Indian commercial gill net fishing period from 6:00 a.m. Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15, 2011 (4.5 days) in Zone 6 of the Columbia River and allow the sales of fish caught during that period. Further modifications prohibit the sale of sockeye salmon after 6:00 p.m. Sunday, July 10, 2011. Revisions are consistent with action taken July 7, 2011 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington in cooperation with the Columbia River Treaty Tribes.

(12) Herman Creek upstream from a line between deadline markers near the mouth. One marker is located on the east bank piling and the other is located on the west bank to the north of the boat ramp.

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 12:01 a.m. Monday, July 18 the mainstem Columbia River is closed to the retention of adult Chinook and all sockeye salmon from the Astoria-Megler Bridge upstream to Bonneville Dam. The fishery remains open for adipose fin-clipped steelhead and adipose fin-clipped Chinook jacks.

(b) Effective 12:01 a.m. Monday, July 18, the mainstem Columbia River from Bonneville Dam upstream to the Highway 395 Bridge near Pasco, Washington is closed to the retention of all sockeye salmon. The fishery remains open for adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon (adults and jacks) and adipose fin-clipped steelhead.

(c) The combined daily bag limit for adult salmon and steelhead is two fish above Bonneville Dam. The daily bag limit below Bonneville Dam is two fish, of which none may be an adult Chinook or any sockeye salmon. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be retained.
