Inclusions and Modifications

(1) The 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations provide requirements for sport fisheries for marine fish, shellfish, and marine invertebrates in the Pacific Ocean, coastal bays, and beaches, commonly referred to as the Marine 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) For the purposes of this rule, a “sport harvest cap” is defined as the amount that may be impacted (combined landings and other fishery related mortality) by the Oregon sport fishery in a single calendar year.

(a) For 2011, the sport harvest cap for black rockfish is 440.8 metric tons.

(3) For the purposes of this rule, “Other nearshore rockfish” means the following rockfish species: black and yellow (Sebastes chrysolmelas); brown (S. auriculatus); calico (S. dalli); China (S. nebulosus); copper (S. caurinus); gopher (S. carnatus); grass (S. rastelliger); kelp (S. atrovirens); olive (S. serranoides); quillback (S. maliger); and treefish (S. serriceps).

(4) For the purposes of this rule a “sport landing cap” is defined as the total landings for a given species, or species group, that may be taken in a single calendar year by the ocean boat fishery. For 2011 the sport landing caps are:

(a) Black rockfish and blue rockfish combined, 481.8 metric tons.

(b) Other nearshore rockfish, 13.6 metric tons.

(c) Cabezon, 15.8 metric tons.

(d) Greenling, 5.2 metric tons.

(5) Effective Wednesday, July 20, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. retention of cabezon, as identified in subsection (4)(c) above, is prohibited in the ocean boat and estuary boat fisheries. Angling for and retention of shore-based cabezon is permitted.

(6) In addition to the regulations for Marine Fish in the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, the following apply for the sport fishery in the Marine Zone in 2011:

(a) Lingcod (including green colored lingcod): 2 fish daily bag limit.

(b) All rockfish (“sea bass” “snapper”), greenling (“sea trout”), cabezon, skates, and other marine fish species not listed in the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations in the Marine Zone, located under the category of Species Name, Marine Fish: 7 fish daily bag limit in aggregate (total sum or number), of which no more than one be a cabezon from April 1 through September 30. Retention of yelloweye rockfish and canary rockfish is prohibited.

(c) Flatfish (flounder, sole, sanddabs, turbot, and all halibut species except Pacific halibut): 25 fish daily bag limit in aggregate (total sum or number).

(d) Retention of all marine fish listed under the category of Species Name, Marine Fish, except Pacific cod, sablefish, herring, anchovy, smelt, sardine, striped bass, hybrid bass, and offshore pelagic species (excluding leopard shark and soupfin shark), is prohibited when Pacific halibut is retained on the vessel during open days for the all-depth sport fishery for Pacific halibut north of Humbug Mountain. Persons must also consult all publications referenced in OAR 635-039-0080 to determine all rules applicable to the taking of Pacific halibut.

(e) Harvest methods and other specifications for marine fish in subsections (6)(a), (6)(b) and (6)(c) including the following:

(A) Minimum length for lingcod, 22 inches.

(B) Minimum length for cabezon, 16 inches.

(C) Minimum length for greenling, 10 inches.

(D) May be taken by angling, hand, bow and arrow, spear, gaff hook, snag hook and herring jigs.

(E) Mutilating the fish so the size or species cannot be determined prior to landing or transporting mutilated fish across state waters is prohibited.

(f) Sport fisheries for species in subsections (6)(a), (6)(b) and (6)(c) and including leopard shark and soupfin shark are open January 1 through December 31, twenty-four hours per day, except that ocean waters are closed for these species during April 1 through July 20, outside of the 40-fathom curve (defined by latitude and longitude) as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 384 Vol. 71, No. 189, dated September 29, 2006. A 20-fathom, 25-fathom, or 30-fathom curve, as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 391 Vol. 71, No. 189, dated September 29, 2006 may be implemented as the management line as in-season modifications necessitate. Ocean waters are closed for species in subsections (6)(a), (6)(b) and (6)(c) during July 21 through December 31, outside of the 20 fathom curve (defined by latitude and longitude) as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 391 Vol. 71, No. 189, dated September 29, 2006.

(g) The Stonewall Bank Yelloweye Rockfish Conservation Area (YRCA) is defined by coordinates specified in Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 70 (October 1, 2010 ed.). Within the YRCA, it is unlawful to fish for, take, or retain species listed in subsections (6)(a), (6)(b) and (6)(c) of this rule, leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut using recreational fishing gear. A vessel engaged in recreational fishing within the YRCA is prohibited from possessing any species listed in subsections (6)(a), (6)(b) and (6)(c) of this rule, leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut. Recreational fishing vessels in possession of species listed in subsections (6)(a), (6)(b) and (6)(c) and including leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut may transit the YRCA without fishing gear in the water.

(7) Razor clams may be taken by hand, shovel, or cylindrical gun or tube. The opening of the gun/tube must be either circular or elliptical with the circular gun/tube opening having a minimum outside diameter of 4 inches and the elliptical gun/tube opening having minimum outside diameter dimensions of 4 inches long and 3 inches wide.

Rules Amended: 635-003-0004

Subject: This amended rule implements a requirement to notify the Department, within one hour of landing, of incidental halibut caught during the troll salmon season, from July 29 through October 31, 2011. Notification shall include the vessel’s name and number; number of pounds of Pacific halibut landed; location of delivery; and estimated time of delivery. These modification are in response to recent federal regulation changes made by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA Fisheries).

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

635-003-0004

Inclusions and Modifications

(1) OAR 635-003-0005 through 635-003-0076 modify or are in addition to provisions contained in Code of Federal Regulations, Title 50, Part 660, Subpart H.

(2) The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 50, Part 660, Subpart H, provides requirements for commercial salmon fishing in the Pacific Ocean off the Oregon coast. However, additional regulations may be promulgated subsequently, and these supersede, to the extent of any inconsistency, the Code of Federal Regulations.

(3) This rule contains requirements which modify commercial salmon fishing regulations off the Oregon coast. The following modifications are organized in sections that apply to the ocean commercial salmon fishery in general and within management zones established by the Pacific Fishery Management Council and enacted by Federal Regulations (CFR, Title 50, Part 660, Subpart H).

(4) General Requirements, Definitions, Restrictions or Exceptions: Vessels prevented by unsafe weather conditions or mechanical problems from meeting management area landing restrictions, must notify the U.S. Coast Guard and receive acknowledgement of such notification prior to leaving the area. Notification shall include the vessel name, port where delivery will be made, approximate number of salmon (by species) on board, and estimated time of arrival.

(5) A rectangular area offshore is open to the retention of all chinook salmon consistent with seasons adopted by the Pacific Fishery Management Council in adjacent waters, except that prior to August 1 only fin-clipped chinook salmon may be retained in this area. This rectangular area extends from Twin Rocks (45º35’54” N. Lat.) to Pyramid Rock (45º29’48” N. Lat.) inside the 15 fathom depth contour.

(6) Humbug Mountain, Oregon, to Humboldt South Jetty: When the fishery is closed north of the Oregon/California border and open to the south, vessels with fish on board taken in the open area may request authorization to temporarily moor in Brookings, Oregon, prior to landing in California. Such vessels shall first notify the Chetco River Coast Guard Station via VHF Channel 22A between the hours of 0500 and 2200. Proper notification shall include the vessel name, number of fish on board, and estimated time of arrival.

(7) All vessels landing any Pacific halibut landed in the troll salmon incidental halibut season from July 29 through October 31, 2011 must report to ODFW within one hour of landing, by calling (541) 867-0300 ext. 271. Notification shall include vessel name and number, number of pounds of Pacific halibut landed, location of delivery, and estimated time of delivery.

Nets that are fished at any time between official sunset and oficial 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.

(3) A maximum of ten (10) white sturgeon, 43-54 inches in fork length, may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) of the August 4-5 fishery. A maximum of three (3) white sturgeon, 43-54 inches in fork length, may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) of the August 16-26 fishery. The sturgeon possession and sales limit includes mainstem fisheries only. Retention of green sturgeon is prohibited.

(4) Closed waters, as described in OAR 635-042-0005 for Grays River, Elokomin-A, Cowlitz River, Kalama-A, Washougal River and Sandy River sanctuaries are in effect during open fishing periods identified above.

(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. 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. Nets fished any time between official sunset and sunrise must have lighted buoys on both ends of the net. If the net is attached to the boat, then one lighted buoy on the end of the net opposite the boat is required.

(a) It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches through August 25, 2011; and more than 6-inches thereafter.

(b) The use of additional weights or anchors attached directly to the leadline is allowed between markers located approximately 200 yards upstream of the mouth of the Walluski River and the upper deadline at Battle Creek Slough during all Youngs Bay commercial fisheries.

(3) White sturgeon may not be possessed or sold.

(4) All waters in Youngs Bay are under State of Oregon jurisdiction and are open to Oregon and Washington fishers who possess valid fishing and boat licenses. Non-resident commercial fishing and boat licenses are not required of Washington fishers participating in Youngs Bay commercial fisheries.

(a) The fallow deer and/or reindeer have had no contact with other cervids while outside Oregon; and

(b) The Department of Fish and Wildlife is notified each time before the fallow deer and/or reindeer re-enter Oregon.

(c) The Department of Fish and Wildlife is provided a schedule of off facility locations and dates before the fallow deer and/or reindeer are transported outside the facility.

(2) Cervid gametes or embryos may be imported into Oregon only under the following conditions:

(a) The person proposing to import provides the Department with documentation of the pedigree of the parents;

(b) The gametes or embryos are of the species or subspecies for which the recipient is licensed to hold; and

(c) The Department approves the import proposal in advance as posing no threat to native wildlife.

(3) Live cervids, gametes and embryos may be exported from Oregon, and cervid gametes and embryos may be imported into Oregon, only by a holder of an Oregon license valid for that species or subspecies, and provided that the licensee complies with all requirements of the Oregon Department of Agriculture governing transport, import and export in addition to provisions of OAR chapter 635 division 049.

(4) To the extent import or export of cervids, gametes or embryos is allowed by the above, any person proposing such import or export must obtain a permit from the Department of Fish and Wildlife in advance.

Capture and Transportation of Raptors

A raptor capture permit is required prior to capturing or attempting to capture any raptor. A non-resident falconer from a state having a federally approved falconry program may obtain a capture permit for species listed in 635-055-0020(3) with the exception of gyrfalcons. All non-resident applications must include a copy of the applicant’s current state falconry license. All applicants for golden eagle capture must include a copy of the federal authorization to take and possess golden eagles. Only 20 non-resident capture permits will be issued in total each capture season. All non-resident capture permits, except for capture permits for peregrine falcons, will be issued on a first come first served basis.

(1) A nonrefundable application fee of $15.00 (plus a $2.00 license agent fee) will be charged for each capture permit allowing the capture of one raptor per permit.

(2) Except for take of peregrine falcons, the Department will issue capture permits in the order applications are received. The permit process will begin January 1st of each year, and applicants must hold a valid Oregon falconry license or a falconry license from a state having a federally approved falconry program. The category of species shall be listed on the permit (e.g. “golden eagle”, “gyrfalcon”, “peregrine falcon”, or “other raptor”) and the falconer is authorized to take only one raptor from the category specified. A falconer may apply for a capture permit in more than one category. The falconer whose name appears on the permit must do the capturing except for peregrine falcon nestlings; the permit is not transferable.

(3) Upon taking the raptor authorized, the permit holder shall immediately validate the permit by recording the date, species, sex, county, and capture method and signing his/her name in the space provided. At the time of capture, the permit holder shall affix the permanent plastic band, issued with the permit, to one leg of the bird. Within five business days of capture, the permit holder shall take the bird to a Department office to have the permit certified.

(4) Lost, raptors at hack, or captive bred raptors may be re-trapped at anytime without a capture permit. All other raptors captured shall be immediately released.

(5) Exportation of wild caught raptors -- No raptor taken from the wild in Oregon shall be transferred to another person residing outside the state except those Oregon wild caught raptors held for six months or longer may be transferred to another person residing outside the state.

(6) An Oregon licensed falconer is allowed to retain legally captured raptors in their possession if they move from Oregon.

(7) Falconers are responsible for treatment and rehabilitation costs of raptors taken for falconry and injured during trapping efforts.

(8) The Department will not issue a falconry capture permit to any person who:

(a) Is awaiting prosecution for, or has been convicted of, any violation of the animal cruelty or animal abuse laws;

(b) Is awaiting prosecution for, or has been convicted of, a wildlife violation involving the illegal take of wildlife;

(c) Is awaiting prosecution for, or has been convicted of, aiding in the illegal take of wildlife; or

(d) Has had his or her hunting or fishing license suspended for a wildlife violation.

(9) A person who is denied a falconry capture permit pursuant to subsection (8) may appeal the decision through a contested case hearing.

Peregrine Falcon Capture Permit Process

(1) Capture permit applications for peregrine falcons may be submitted to the Department beginning January 1st but must be received no later than March 1st of each year. The Department will issue peregrine falcon capture permits by way of a lottery draw pursuant to OAR 635-055-0037.

(2) The Department will not accept a permit application from any person who:

(a) Is awaiting prosecution for, or has been convicted of, any violation of the animal cruelty or animal abuse laws;

(b) Is awaiting prosecution for, or has been convicted of, a wildlife violation involving the illegal take of wildlife;

(c) Is awaiting prosecution for, or has been convicted of, aiding in the illegal take of wildlife; or

(d) Has had his or her hunting or fishing license suspended for a wildlife violation.

(3) A $15.00 application fee (plus a $2.00 license agent fee) must be submitted with the application. Application fees are nonrefundable, whether or not an applicant is successful in the drawing.

(4) Peregrine capture permit applications (including fees) must be submitted to the Department’s Salem headquarters office no later than March 1 each year.

(a) If hand delivered, an application must be received at Department headquarters office (3406 Cherry Ave, NE, Salem, OR, 97303) by 5:00 p.m. on March 1

(b) If sent via postal mail, an application must be postmarked no later than March 1.

(5) If an applicant violates any of the following restrictions, the Department will remove his or her application from the drawing.

(a) An applicant may submit only one peregrine capture permit application per capture season.

(b) An applicant must submit a completed application containing name, license number, address, and phone number.

(6) The Department will conduct the lottery to award peregrine falcon capture permits by drawing names of eligible entrants at random. To participate in the lottery, a person must:

(a) If an Oregon resident possess a current Master Falconers license as per OAR 635-055-0002; or

(b) If a nonresident possess a Master Falconers license from a state having a federally approved falconry program.

(7)(a) During each year’s lottery, the Department will draw six Oregon resident applications and two alternates, plus one non-resident application and a non-resident alternate.

(b) The Department will notify successful applicants and alternates by mail. If the applicant does not reply in writing (mail, fax, or email) within 10 calendar days, the applicant will be disqualified and the Department will offer the permit to the next alternate. If neither alternate replies in the required time, the permit will not be issued.

(8) If a permit holder violates any of the following rules, the Department will invalidate his or her peregrine capture permit. Taking of a peregrine falcon without a valid permit is a violation of these rules and is therefore an unlawful taking.

(a) The first four (4) resident peregrine capture permit applications drawn in the lottery (indicating on the application form a wish to take a nestling peregrine falcon) will be authorized to take a nestling from a natural nest site, or to take a post fledgling bird (pursuant to 635-055-0035(5)(b)). Resident permit holders who are authorized to take a nestling from a natural site must provide the Department Falconry Program in writing with a clearly marked hardcopy map with sufficient labels and information to determine location (Public Land Survey System data which includes Township, Range, Section, Quarter Section, and Quarter or a coordinate pair [latitude/longitude, or UTM/Meters] derived from a GPS unit indicating datum, brand and model) of the nest sites they have selected for potential nestling take. Such information must be received by the Department within two weeks after receipt of a raptor capture permit. Resident master falconer permit-holders may instead accept a nestling peregrine falcon taken by persons (authorized by the Department) from man-made structures (but only where nestlings need to be removed from a nest during management or operational activities on the structures). In the event that nestlings become available from structures, resident permits will be given preference over nonresidents in the lottery.

(b)The remaining two (2) successful resident applicants may accept a young peregrine falcon taken by persons (authorized by the Department) from man-made structures (but only where nestlings need to be removed from a nest during management or operational activities on the structures). Alternatively, the permit holder may take a post-fledgling bird (pursuant to 635-055-0035(5)(b)).

(c) Of the number of permits available for issuance annually, the Department will make one such permit available to nonresidents. The nonresident permit holder may accept a nestling peregrine falcon taken by persons (authorized by the Department) from man-made structures (but only where nestlings need to be removed from a nest during management or operational activities on the structures). Alternatively, the permit holder may take a post-fledgling bird (pursuant to 635-055-0035 (5) (b)).

(9) Each permit will include conditions crafted by the Department on a case by case basis to address the capture proposal. Such conditions may include, but are not limited to, requirements to protect the safety of falconers and other humans during capture of peregrine falcons, and will specify where the permit holder may capture peregrine falcons. The following general conditions apply to all peregrine falcon capture permits:

(a) Young falcons may be removed from their eyries (nests) between May 15th and June 30th but only when between 15 and 24 days of age. At least one nestling must be left in each eyrie prior to fledging.

(A) Prior to entering any nest, a permit holder must monitor each potential nest site to assess the presence and occupancy of nesting peregrine falcons and determine the chronology of nestlings in the selected nest(s) by following a protocol provided by the Department. Using a form provided by the Department, the permit holder must notify the Department of the site location (by providing a clearly marked map with sufficient labels and information to determine location using either Public Land Survey System data which includes Township, Range, Section, Quarter Section, and Quarter or a coordinate pair [latitude/longitude, or UTM/Meters] derived from a GPS unit indicating datum, brand and model); the names of the property owners; the number of young in the nest and approximate ages of the nestlings; and nest monitoring documentation collected to date at the specific nest site proposed for entry. The permit holder must provide this information to the Department Falconry Program at least seven (7) days prior to attempting any nest entry.

(B) Permit-holders must also contact in writing or by phone the appropriate Department biologist in the District or Watershed in which the nest(s) are located at least seven (7) days prior to proposed nest entry. Where nests are located on federal land, permit holders must in addition contact U.S. Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management biologists before entering nest sites. State and federal biologists may accompany permit-holders during take activities.

(C) The permit holder must be present when the nestling is being removed from the eyrie.

(b) A post-fledgling peregrine falcon may be taken (trapped) by a permitted master falconer during the time period between when the falcon first flies from its nest through August 31st.

(A) Trapping may be attempted only at locations approved by the Department.

(B) The permit holder must be present at all times whenever a trap is in operation while attempting to take a post-fledgling peregrine falcon.

(C) A permit holder must notify the Department’s Falconry Program at the Salem headquarters office prior to the proposed dates of any peregrine falcon capture attempts. Proposed capture locations must be disclosed to the Department program staff prior to attempting to capture a post-fledgling peregrine falcon.

(c) Each permit holder who takes a peregrine falcon from the wild must report the sex and precise capture location to the Department and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service within 5 days following capture by providing a clearly marked map with sufficient labels and information to determine location using Public Land Survey System data which includes Township, Range, Section, Quarter Section, and Quarter or a coordinate pair (latitude/longitude, or UTM/Meters) derived from a GPS unit indicating datum, brand and model. If the falconer later determines that the sex of any peregrine falcon taken was reported incorrectly, then the falconer must submit a corrected report as soon as possible after discovering the error.

(d) Permit holders must band each peregrine falcon taken with a band provided by the Department.

(e) After a captured falcon reaches 30 days of age, the permit holder must pluck breast feathers from the falcon and submit them to the Department along with a written record of the precise location of where the bird was taken from in the wild.

(10) Upon taking the raptor authorized, the permit holder must immediately validate the permit by recording the date, species, sex, county, and capture method and signing his or her name in the space provided. At the time of capture, the permit holder must affix the permanent plastic band, issued with the permit, to one leg of the bird. Within five business days of capture, the permit holder must take the bird to a Department office to have the permit certified.

(11) Peregrine falcon capture permits are not transferable.

Objectives

The following objectives of the Department apply to spring Chinook in the Mainstem Willamette River: Manage the escapement of wild spring Chinook into the Willamette River to meet the desired status of independent populations in Willamette River subbasins, as described in the Upper Willamette River Conservation and Recovery Plan for Chinook Salmon and Steelhead (OAR 635-500-6600):

(1) Increase the average annual run size to 100,000 Willamette spring Chinook (adults and jacks) entering the Columbia River.

(2) The escapement goals for Willamette River hatchery origin spring Chinook are as follows:

(a) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is fewer than 40,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 23,000 hatchery fish with 20,000 fish passing Willamette Falls and 3,000 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(b) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 40,000 to fewer than 50,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 25,300 hatchery fish with 22,000 fish passing Willamette Falls and 3,300 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(c) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 50,000 to fewer than 60,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 27,600 hatchery fish with 24,000 fish passing Willamette Falls and 3,600 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(d) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 60,000 to fewer than 70,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 30,500 hatchery fish with 26,500 fish passing Willamette Falls and 4,000 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(e) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 70,000 to fewer than 80,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 33,400 hatchery fish with 29,000 fish passing Willamette Falls and 4,400 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(f) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 80,000 to fewer than 90,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 36,900 hatchery fish with 32,000 fish passing Willamette Falls and 4,900 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(g) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 90,000 to fewer than 100,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 40,400 hatchery fish with 35,000 fish passing Willamette Falls and 5,400 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(h) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is greater than 100,000 hatchery fish, the escapement goal after fisheries is 45,000 hatchery fish with 39,000 fish passing Willamette Falls and 6,000 fish entering the Clackamas River.

(3) The difference between the preseason forecast of Willamette River hatchery origin spring Chinook entering the Columbia River and the escapement goal is allowable catch to be allocated to the sport and commercial fisheries in the lower Columbia, lower Willamette, and Clackamas rivers as follows:

(a) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is fewer than 23,000 hatchery fish there is no allowable catch except sport and commercial fisheries may each take up to 1% of the run as incidental catch in non-Willamette spring Chinook target fisheries.

(b) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 23,000 to fewer than 40,000 hatchery fish, the entire allowable catch is allocated to the sport fishery except the commercial fishery may take up to 1% of the run as incidental catch in non-Willamette spring Chinook target fisheries.

(c) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 40,000 to fewer than 45,000 hatchery fish, the allowable catch is allocated 85% to the sport fishery and 15% to the commercial fishery.

(d) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 45,000 to fewer than 50,000 hatchery fish, the allowable catch is allocated 80% to the sport fishery and 20% to the commercial fishery.

(e) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 50,000 to fewer than 60,000 hatchery fish, the allowable catch is allocated 76% to the sport fishery and 24% to the commercial fishery.

(f) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is 60,000 to fewer than 75,000 hatchery fish, the allowable catch is allocated 73% to the sport fishery and 27% to the commercial fishery.

(g) If the preseason forecasted Willamette hatchery spring Chinook run into the Columbia River is greater than 75,000 hatchery fish, the allowable catch is allocated 70% to the sport fishery and 30% to the commercial fishery.

(4) In the mainstem above Willamette Falls up to the mouth of the McKenzie River, maintain the opportunity for recreational catch of spring Chinook salmon consistent with opportunity in the mainstem below Willamette Falls.

Implementing the Upper Willamette River Conservation and Recovery Plan for Chinook Salmon and Steelhead

(1) Policy. The Upper Willamette River Conservation and Recovery Plan for Chinook Salmon and Steelhead (UWR Plan; State of Oregon 2011, available at Department offices) implements the State’s strategy for protecting and enhancing Chinook salmon and steelhead trout in Willamette River subbasins, in cooperation with other federal and local partners, including Oregon Plan natural resource agencies and NOAA Fisheries. The UWR Plan is based on the premise that the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds provides the best vehicle for securing partnerships, both private and governmental, to successfully implement the actions called for in this plan. This rule describes the Commission’s contribution toward this collective effort and directs the Department’s implementation of the UWR Recovery Plan. This rule describes the Department’s role in implementing the UWR Recovery Plan consistent with the Department’s statutory authorities and the Native Fish Conservation Policy (OAR 635-007-0502 thru 635-007-0505). The rule is not intended to be a rigid recipe but rather to identify the range of opportunities the Department should pursue and how the effectiveness of those opportunities should be evaluated, following the template first established in the Native Fish Conservation Policy.

(2) Description of Species Management Unit and Populations. The Species Management Units (SMUs) for Upper Willamette River Chinook and steelhead are the portions of the Upper Willamette River Evolutionarily Significant Units (ESUs) for Chinook salmon, and the Distinct Population Segment (DPSs) for steelhead that are comprised of independent populations, as defined in Chapter 2 of the UWR Plan. To avoid confusion and because the SMUs are the same as the federal ESUs, or DPSs, designations, the term ESU will be used to designate the SMUs for Willamette River Chinook salmon and steelhead.

(3) Desired Status. The desired status goal for populations of Upper Willamette Chinook salmon and steelhead is two-tiered such that:

(a) Delisting Goal. The ESU and DPS covered by the UWR Plan can be removed from the federal Endangered Species Act threatened and endangered list. This shall be achieved through the following:

(A) All independent populations achieve the status called for under the Desired Status for Delisting identified in Chapter 6 of the plan; and

(B) Significant improvements are achieved in salmon and steelhead survival from actions implemented to reduce habitat, hydrosystem, harvest, hatcheries, and/or predation threats, as identified in Chapter 6 for each population; and

(b) Broad Sense Goal. Eventual improvements in salmon and steelhead survival from management actions provide for all independent populations to be sufficiently abundant, productive, and diverse (in terms of life histories and geographic distribution) so that they provide significant ecological, social, cultural, and economic benefits. These broad sense recovery goals for the ESUs shall be achieved by the following: All independent Upper Willamette River Chinook salmon and steelhead populations pass all of the measurable criteria for highly viable status.

(c) The three measurable criteria for desired status of Upper Willamette Chinook salmon and steelhead independent populations are defined in Chapter 8 of the UWR Plan and include:

(A) Abundance and productivity;

(B) Spatial structure; and

(C) Diversity.

(d) While criteria for survival rate to each critical life history stage can not yet be developed with the available information and monitoring, staff shall establish such criteria for these biological attributes when adequate information and monitoring is available.

(4) Current Status. The current status of each Upper Willamette River Chinook salmon and steelhead ESU at the time of the adoption of this rule is described in Chapter 4 of the UWR Plan. This assessment describes the biological attributes, criteria and metrics used to assess the status of each ESU. Those biological attributes, criteria, and metrics are adopted by reference into this rule. The Department shall update current status periodically consistent with timelines described under Adaptive Management in Chapter 9 of the UWR Plan. These updates do not require rule modification of current status, but rather will serve as a measurement of progress toward desired status.

(5) Primary Limiting Factors.

(a) Numerous factors contribute to the gap between current and desired status of populations comprising the Upper Willamette River Chinook salmon and steelhead ESUs. Marine survival of salmon and steelhead associated with ocean conditions is the largest single factor regulating salmon and steelhead productivity and abundance. Marine survival is not considered a primary limiting factor for salmon and steelhead because management has little influence on marine survival.

(b) The factors generally causing the gap between current and desired status for the Upper Willamette River Salmon and Steelhead ESUs that can be managed are:

(A) Impaired fish passage;

(B) Stream habitat complexity including riparian condition;

(C) Water quality;

(D) Water quantity;

(E) Altered hydrology;

(F) Excessive sediment;

(G) Harvest;

(H) Hatchery fish interactions; and

(I) Predation.

(c) Primary and secondary limiting factors are identified for each population in Chapter 5 of the UWR Plan. Staff will continue to help revise and identify new management actions addressing these factors to aid in reaching desired status. Staff may analyze the limiting factors at a finer, more localized scale when selecting or prioritizing management actions for specific areas. These analyses may find primary and secondary factors different at a local scale than what was found at the ESU or population scale.

(6) Management Strategies. Management strategies to address limiting factors for each population are identified in Chapter 7 of the UWR Plan. Staff shall consider and attempt to implement these management strategies designed for the ESUs as a whole, and for constituent populations as applicable, as mechanisms to reach the desired status.

(a) Short-term Strategies (1 to 5 years):

(A) Provide technical support to local watershed groups to inform them of the primary and secondary limiting factors at local scales within populations.

(B) Educate and inform watershed groups and co-managers of the highest priority tributary management actions. Facilitate implementation of the highest priority tributary habitat actions.

(C) Provide support to oversee the tracking and reporting of plan action implementation and development of implementation schedules as called for in Chapter 9 of the UWR Plan.

(D) Implement actions to reduce the abundance of naturally spawning hatchery fish in those populations where reductions are called for in Chapter 6 of the Oregon UWR Plan to achieve desired status.

(E) Conduct analyses to determine the effect of climate change on individual populations to help prioritize action implementation.

(b) Additional Long-term Strategies (1 to 25 years):

(A) Work cooperatively with co-managers to assist Action Agencies in implementing the federal Biological Opinions that address effects of flood control/hydropower facilties and operations.

(B) Implement the research, monitoring and evaluation identified in Chapter 8 of the UWR Plan within funding and staffing constraints.

(C) Facilitate the implementation of the adaptive management strategy and framework identified in Chapter 9 of the UWR Plan.

(D Collect monitoring data, conduct analyses, and complete or support reports and assessments documenting progress toward the desired status goals for the Upper Willamette River ESUs.

(E) Provide technical support to, and coordinate with, federal, state and local agencies and groups to protect existing high quality salmon and steelhead habitat.

(F) Provide technical support to, and coordinate with, federal, state and local agencies and groups to create additional high quality salmon and steelhead habitat.

(G) Provide technical and outreach support to willing landowners that will enhance the maintenance and/or creation of high quality salmon and steelhead habitat.

(7) Adaptive Management. The Department shall employ adaptive management principles within its statutory authority in support of achieving the desired status goal for the ESUs by participating in the adaptive management and implementation processes defined in Chapter 9 of the UWR Plan. The Department’s contribution to adaptive management of the ESUs by the state of Oregon will include five elements: research; monitoring; evaluation; a feedback loop; and reporting.

(a) Research. The Department shall support high priority research identified in the Plan that addresses uncertainties related to management strategies and actions needed to achieve desired status. Research needs at the time of adoption (but which are not intended to be the exclusive research projects to be pursued) are identified in the UWR Plan in Chapter 8. Future research needs shall be identified during periodic assessments of the effectiveness of the UWR Plan.

(b) Monitoring. The Department shall continue to identify, implement, and support monitoring needed to assess the status of each ESU and the Chinook salmon and steelhead populations relative to desired status criteria and evaluate habitat status trends in the Upper Willamette River ESUs, as funding and staffing allow. Monitoring needs at the time of adoption are identified in the UWR Plan in Chapter 8. Future monitoring needs shall be identified during periodic assessments of the effectiveness of the UWR Plan.

(c) Evaluation. The Department shall identify and support evaluation needed to determine status assessment and the effectiveness of management strategies and actions in achieving their intended outcomes. Evaluation needs at the time of adoption are identified in the UWR Plan in Chapter 8. Future evaluation needs shall be identified during periodic assessments of the effectiveness of the UWR Plan.

(d) Feedback Loop. The Department shall review the results of reports and assessments identified in 635-500-6575(7)(e) and modify management strategies and actions as appropriate and within its statutory authority based on the review results. The Department shall implement the Adaptive Management processes identified in the Oregon UWR Plan and recommend to the UWR Recovery and Oregon Plan Core Teams and other agencies or entities, as necessary, appropriate modifications to management strategies and actions needed to support attainment of the desired status goals for each ESU. This feedback shall include refinement of management actions, research, monitoring and evaluation programs and desired status criteria based on the best available scientific information.

(e) Reporting. Annual and periodic evaluations of Plan implementation and ESU status shall be made available to the public. The Department shall participate in the preparation of annual and 5 year (2016) status reports, the 12 year (2023) ESU assessment of the effectiveness of the UWR Plan, and additional assessments as necessitated by new information or significant population declines.

(f) Modifications to the UWR Plan are required if the fish become listed as endangered under the federal ESA or by the direction of the UWR Recovery Team in periodic UWR Plan status reports. These reports by the Recovery Team will serve as an early warning system that will direct additional monitoring, evaluation, or management actions, if needed, based on annual review of monitoring data.

(8) Impact on Other Native Fish Species. Management strategies identified in the UWR Plan are likely to be beneficial to other native fish species present in the ESUs because they focus on restoring natural processes. New or modified actions shall consider impacts to other native species, as appropriate, to minimize harm and optimize benefits.

Rule Caption: Revised Public Process for Angling Regulation Development.

Adm. Order No.: DFW 111-2011

Filed with Sec. of State: 8-10-2011

Certified to be Effective: 8-31-11

Notice Publication Date: 7-1-2011

Rules Amended: 635-011-0050

Subject: This amended rule, 635-011-0050, revised the 5-step public process and procedures for developing Oregon’s angling regulations. Development of the new 5-step public process for angling regulation development has involved the public from the onset. Public comments were used to develop the initial draft process which was presented to the Warmwater Working Group (WWG), Inland Sports Fishing Advisory Committee (ISFAC), Fish Conservation Groups and interested members of the public. A draft of the new 5-step public process was presented to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission at its June 3, 2011 meeting. Subsequent guidance from the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Commission has led to, among other things, the inclusion of a new proposal review process; revised public proposal review criteria; and adjusted timelines for public proposal submission.

Procedures for Promulgation of Angling Regulations

(1) In accordance with ORS 496.162, Department staff shall continually monitor the status of fish, shellfish, and marine invertebrates and report promptly to the Director and Commission any serious or abnormal changes in health or abundance of the resource.

(2) Except as provided in subsections (2)(a) and (2)(b), the Commission shall adopt annually those rules prescribing seasons, bag limits, method of harvest, and specific restrictions considered necessary to provide optimum recreational and aesthetic benefits to anglers and other citizens;

(a) In the event more restrictive rules are needed to protect or preserve a species or stock experiencing depletion or drastic decline in health or abundance the Commission shall consider adopting rules at its earliest opportunity to prevent further depletion or decline;

(b) In the event more liberal rules are needed to allow anglers to harvest stocks which become more abundant than expected or which would otherwise be wasted, the Commission shall consider adopting rules at its earliest opportunity to prevent waste and provide additional public recreation.

(3) In order to facilitate incorporation of all available information relating to angling regulations, and to reduce the costs associated with promulgating rules to establish regulations and making those regulations available to the public, it is desirable that major changes in seasons, bag limits, methods of harvest and specific regulations be made during Major Public Process Cycles which will take place every four years or at such intervals as determined by staff to best incorporate public input and that during interim years, angling regulations be adopted annually without substantive change. In order to so limit substantive changes to angling regulations to the degree practicable, during Major Public Process Cycles starting in 2013 the following standards and procedures shall be followed:

(a) The Department will request proposals for new or modified regulations during Major Public Process Cycles. Such proposals shall include: identity of sponsor, name of waterbody or species, proposed wording, a stated reason the rule is considered necessary. Actions intended to change fishing opportunities must clearly identify need, benefit and rationale for change; must clearly demonstrate the benefit of changing regulations, must clearly acknowledge impacts to other anglers and social support for change, and demonstrate that changes do not cause or increase risk to fish populations, reproduction or recruitment, or maintaining future fisheries. If intended to conserve fish populations, regulation changes must demonstrate a conservation benefit, demonstrate that current regulations do not adequately protect populations. A standard form for submitting proposals will be available from Department offices by January 1 the year of the Major Public Process Cycle;

(b) Absent extenuating circumstances only proposals received by February 28 will be included in the process described in subsections (3)(c), (3)(d), (3)(e), and (3)(f);

(c) Proposals received by February 28 shall be reviewed by Department staff and enforcement personnel. Reviews will be based on criteria listed in subsection (3)(g). Like proposals may be grouped or consolidated. Proposals not passing department reviews will be eliminated from the process prior to Commission meetings. By May 15 the Department will provide to sponsor, the results of the review and specific basis for rejection or acceptance of the proposal along with relevant comments;

(d) A summary of all angling regulation proposals received by February 28 and passing staff and enforcement personnel reviews described in subsection (3)(c) will be publicized through the news media to identify the issues which are being processed;

(e) Proposals passing staff and enforcement personnel reviews described in subsection (3)(c) may be presented at public meetings to allow public comment on the merits of the proposal and determine levels of public support for proposed rules. Such meetings will be held prior to July 1;

(f) A Commission hearing will be held in late summer or early fall to establish angling regulations. Only properly submitted angling regulation proposals in compliance with subsections (3)(a), (3)(b), and (3)(d) shall be considered; others may be considered at discretion of Commission;

(g) In determining the merits and necessity of a proposed regulation and in making the decision on adoption, the Commission may consider one or all of the following. The proposed rule should be:

(A) Consistent with ODFW fish management and conservation policies and rules;

(B) Consistent with federal fish management plans and mandates;

(C) Consistent with statutory mandates and within ODFW’s rule-making authority;

(D) Based on an established need;

(E) Consistent with biologically sound principles and biologically feasible;

(F) Supported by affected citizens and address an established social need;

(G) Easily understood with clearly defined limits or boundaries;

(H) Enforceable.

(h) Proposed regulations which fail to meet these conditions may be eliminated from the Major Public Process prior to Commission consideration.

(4) Nothing in this rule shall in any way limit any rights conferred under ORS 183.390 and OAR 137-001-0070.

Certified to be Effective: 8-10-11

Notice Publication Date: 7-1-2011

Rules Adopted: 635-500-6625

Subject: The adopted rule, 635-500-6625, implements the Lower Columbia River and Oregon Coast White Sturgeon Conservation Plan (Plan). The Plan provides a framework to manage and conserve the species ensuring a healthy, viable and productive population into the future while providing sustainable harvest opportunities and other ecological and societal benefits. It is also consistent with the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds, and the Lower Columbia River Conservation and Recovery Plan.

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

635-500-6625

Implementing the Lower Columbia River and Oregon Coast White Sturgeon Conservation Plan

(1) Policy. The Lower Columbia River and Oregon Coast White Sturgeon Conservation Plan (LCROC White Sturgeon Plan) (State of Oregon 2011, available at Department offices) implements the State’s strategy for protecting and enhancing Oregon white sturgeon in the lower Columbia River and in Oregon coastal and marine habitats, in cooperation with other federal and local partners, including Oregon Plan natural resource agencies. The LCROC White Sturgeon Plan is consistent with the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds and the Lower Columbia River Conservation and Recovery Plan. This rule describes the Commission’s contribution toward this collective effort and directs the Department’s implementation of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan. This rule describes the Department’s role in implementing the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan consistent with the Department’s statutory authorities and the Native Fish Conservation Policy (OAR 635-007-0502 thru 635-007-0505). The rule is not intended to be a rigid recipe but rather to identify the range of opportunities the Department should pursue and how the effectiveness of those opportunities should be evaluated, following the template first established in the Native Fish Conservation Policy.

(2) Description of the Species Management Unit and Populations. All white sturgeon in Oregon are represented by one Species Management Unit (SMU) and one population. However, there are seven population segments within the SMU that are managed as more discrete units: Lower Columbia/Oregon Coast; Bonneville Reservoir; The Dalles Reservoir; John Day Reservoir; McNary Reservoir; Middle Snake River (downstream from Hells Canyon Dam); and Mid Snake Reservoirs (upstream from Hells Canyon Dam). The LCROC White Sturgeon Plan addresses the Lower Columbia/Oregon Coast population segment (LCROC white sturgeon), which is comprised of white sturgeon inhabiting the mainstem lower Columbia River downstream from Bonneville Dam, adjacent Oregon freshwater habitats (including the Willamette River downstream from Willamette Falls), and Oregon coastal and marine habitats. It also addresses white sturgeon in the Willamette River upstream from Willamette Falls, although this area is not part of the SMU.

(3) Desired Status.

(a) Broad Sense Goals. The goals of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan are to avoid any substantial reductions in the Lower Columbia/Oregon Coast white sturgeon population segment; to maintain a naturally reproducing population segment that makes full use of natural habitats and provides ecological, economic, and cultural benefits to Oregon residents; and to provide sustainable commercial and recreational fishing opportunities. LCROC white sturgeon are important to Oregon and the region as a whole. Ensuring persistence and genetic diversity of the species and its ecological niche, now and for future generations, is necessary to maintain the social, cultural and economic benefits this population segment currently provides.

(b) Measurable criteria for biological attributes are defined in Section 6 of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan. Primary Biological Attributes include:

(A) Abundance: number of individuals at a given life stage.

(B) Distribution: where and when individuals at each life stage are found throughout their historic range.

(C) Diversity: the level of genetic variation and how that variation is expressed within the population segment.

(D) Productivity: how well the population segment is able to sustain and/or increase its abundance over time.

(E) Habitat: the quantity, quality and distribution of habitat types important to various life stages.

(F) Persistence: the likelihood that the population segment will maintain its existence and remain viable over time.

(4) Current Status. The current status of LCROC white sturgeon at the time of the adoption of this rule is described in Section 7 of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan. The biological attributes, criteria and metrics used to assess current status are adopted by reference into this rule. The Department shall update current status periodically consistent with timelines described in Section 12 (Adaptive Management) of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan. These updates do not require rule modification of current status, but rather will serve as a measurement of progress toward desired status.

(5) Principal Limiting Factors.

(a) Numerous factors that contribute to the gap between current and desired status of LCROC white sturgeon are described in Section 9 of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan.

(b) Factors of particular concern are:

(A) Predation by Marine Mammals;

(B) River Flow and Flow Variation;

(C) Habitat Quality and Quantity; and

(D) Overharvest.

(c) Staff will continue to work with others to refine existing and identify new management actions that address the limiting factors identified in the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan. Staff may analyze the limiting factors at a finer, more localized scale when selecting or prioritizing management actions for specific areas. These analyses may find primary and secondary factors different at a local scale than those for the entire Lower Columbia/Oregon Coast white sturgeon population segment.

(6) Management Strategies. Management strategies to address limiting factors for LCROC white sturgeon are identified in Section 11 of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan. Staff shall advocate for the implementation of, and where appropriate endeavor to implement these management strategies as mechanisms to reach the desired status. Strategies to address factors generally causing the gap between current and desired status for LCROC white sturgeon include:

(a) Short-term Strategies (1 to 5 years).

(A) Minimize marine mammal predation.

(B) Optimize the configuration and operations of the Columbia River hydropower system to best mimic a natural hydrograph and normative river conditions.

(C) Minimize incidental mortality associated with hydrosystem operations.

(D) Protect and restore high-quality habitat in the lower Columbia River and adjacent waters, including the Willamette River and coastal bays, estuaries and rivers.

(E) Maintain water quality in the lower Columbia River.

(F) Prevent, and when unavoidable, mitigate for impacts associated with in-water work activity.

(G) Manage lower Columbia River white sturgeon sport and commercial fisheries to not exceed sustainable harvest levels.

(b) Additional Long-term strategies (1 to 25 years).

(A) Restore Columbia River connectivity by providing improved passage at hydropower projects.

(B) Minimize the impacts of piscine predation.

(7) Adaptive Management. The Department shall employ adaptive management principles within its statutory authority in support of achieving the desired status goal for LCROC white sturgeon by participating in the adaptive management and implementation processes defined in Section 12 of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan. Pursuant to the adaptive management framework, a White Sturgeon Technical Management Team (WSTMT) will be formed to monitor the status of LCROC white sturgeon. The WSTMT will be made up of representatives from the Department, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, other regional natural resource managers, and sturgeon experts. The Department’s contribution to adaptive management of LCROC white sturgeon will include five elements: research, monitoring, evaluation, a feedback loop, and reporting.

(a) Research. The Department shall support high-priority research identified in the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan that addresses uncertainties related to management strategies and actions needed to achieve desired status. Research needs at the time of adoption (but which are not intended to be an exclusive list of research projects to be pursued) are identified in the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan in Section 11. Future research needs shall be identified by the WSTMT during periodic assessments of the effectiveness of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan.

(b) Monitoring. The Department shall continue to identify, implement, and support monitoring needed to assess the status of LCROC white sturgeon relative to desired status criteria and habitat status trends as funding allows. Monitoring needs at the time of adoption are identified in the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan in Section 11. Future monitoring needs shall be identified by the WSTMT during periodic assessments of the effectiveness of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan.

(c) Evaluation. The Department shall continue to identify and support evaluation needed to assess the status of LCROC white sturgeon and the effectiveness of management strategies and actions in achieving their intended outcomes. Evaluation needs at the time of adoption are identified in the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan in Section 11. Future evaluation needs shall be identified by the WSTMT during periodic assessments of the effectiveness of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan.

(d) Feedback Loop. The Department shall review the results of reports and assessments identified in 635-500-6625(7)(e) and modify management strategies and actions as appropriate and within its statutory authority based on the review results. The Department shall recommend to other agencies or entities, as necessary, appropriate modifications to management strategies and actions needed to support attainment of the desired status goals and avoid conservation status for LCROC white sturgeon. This feedback shall include refinement of management actions, research, monitoring and evaluation programs and desired status criteria based on the best available scientific information. In Section 6 of the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan, conservation status thresholds for biological attributes are described, each of which represent conditions in which the future persistence of the population becomes unpredictable without significant management action. These thresholds will be used by the WSTMT to determine if temporary modifications to management strategies or actions are needed. In the event that temporary modifications do not rectify the conservation status of these biological attributes within a reasonable time frame, a review of the status of LCROC white sturgeon and the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan will be conducted by the WSTMT.

(e) Reporting. The WSTMT shall meet periodically to review the status of LCROC white sturgeon, especially as it pertains to desired and conservation status. In addition to reviewing the current status, the WSTMT will monitor progress toward addressing the constraints, limiting factors, threats, critical uncertainties, and data gaps. The results of the status review will be published on the Department website as a management report. The WSTMT shall produce an in-depth review of the status of LCROC white sturgeon at five-year intervals. Any reports generated or data collected will be made available to the public.

(8) Impact on Other Native Fish Species. Management strategies identified in the LCROC White Sturgeon Plan are likely to be beneficial to other native fish species present in the range of LCROC white sturgeon because they focus on restoring natural processes. New or modified actions shall consider impacts to other native species, as appropriate, to minimize harm and optimize benefits.

Blind Slough and Knappa Slough Select Area Salmon Season

(1) Salmon and shad may be taken for commercial purposes during open fishing periods described as the winter fishery and the fall fishery in paragraphs (1)(a)(A) or (1)(a)(B) of this rule in those waters of Blind Slough and Knappa Slough. The following restrictions apply:

(a) The open fishing periods are established in segments categorized as the winter fishery in Blind Slough only in paragraph (A), and the spring fishery in Blind Slough and Knappa Slough in paragraph (B). The seasons are open nightly from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours), as follows:

(A) Blind Slough Only: None scheduled.

(B) Blind and Knappa Sloughs:

(i) Monday through Thursday nights, from August 29 through October 28, 2011 (36 nights); and

(ii) Open 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. nightly (12 hours) from Monday, August 29 through Friday, September 16, 2011 and 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. nightly (14 hours) thereafter.

(b) The fishing areas for the fall seasons are:

(A) Blind Slough are those waters from markers at the mouth of Gnat Creek which is located approximately 1/2 mile upstream of the county road bridge, downstream to markers at the mouth of Blind Slough.

(B) Knappa Slough are all waters bounded by a line from the northerly most marker at the mouth of Blind Slough westerly to a marker on Karlson Island downstream to a north-south line defined by a marker on the eastern end of Minaker Island to markers on Karlson Island and the Oregon shore.

(C) During the periods identified above in (1)(a)(B)(i) and (1)(a)(B)(ii), the Knappa Slough fishing area extends from a line between the northerly most marker at the mouth of Blind Slough, westerly to a marker on Karlson Island, downstream to the boundary lines defined by markers on the west end of Minaker Island to markers on Karlson Island and the Oregon shore. Markers define an area closure of about a 100 foot radius at the mouth of Big Creek.

(c) Gear restrictions are as follows:

(A) During the winter fishery, outlined above in (1)(a)(A), gill nets may not exceed 100 fathoms in length with no weight limit on the lead line. The attachment of additional weight and anchors directly to the lead line is permitted. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is less than 7-inches.

(B) During the fall fishery, outlined above in (1)(a)(B)(i) and (1)(a)(B)(ii), gill nets may not exceed 100 fathoms in length with no weight limit on the lead line. The attachment of additional weight and anchors directly to the lead line is permitted. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches. 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. Nets fished any time between official sunset and sunrise must have lighted buoys on both ends of the net. If the net is attached to the boat, then one lighted buoy on the end of the net opposite the boat is required.

(2) Sturgeon may NOT be possessed or sold by participating vessels during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fishery is open. During the fishing periods identified in sections (1)(a)(A) and (1)(a)(B) the weekly white sturgeon prohibition applies to combined possessions and sales for all open Select Area fisheries only.

(3) Oregon licenses are required in the open waters upstream from the railroad bridge.
