Early Fall Salmon Season

(1) Salmon and white sturgeon may be taken for commercial purposes in the waters of the Columbia River:

(a) Zones 1-5, as identified in OAR 635-042-0001 as follows:

9:00 p.m. Sunday, September 18 to 6:00 a.m. Monday, September 19, 2011 (9 hours)

(b) Zones 4-5, the deadline at the lower end of Zone 4 is defined as a straight line projected from the Warrior Rock Lighthouse on the Oregon shore easterly through the green navigation buoy #1 and continuing to the Washington shore, as follows:

8:00 p.m. Monday, September 19 to 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, September 20, 2011 (10 hours); and

8:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 20 to 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, September 21, 2011 (10 hours).

(2) Only drift gill nets may be used. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size less than 8 inches or more than 9.75 inches (as described in OAR 635-042-0010 (4)). 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 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 seven (7) white sturgeon, 43–54 inches in fork length, may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday). The sturgeon possession and sales limit includes mainstem fisheries only. Sales of white sturgeon from fall Select Area fisheries is prohibited. 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. Only the Washougal River and Sandy River sanctuaries are in effect for fisheries described in section (1)(b) above.

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)(a) 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.

(b) 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 September 30, 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.
