Any weight (except the bobber) may be no more than 36-inches from the lowermost hook when suspended vertically. The leader below the bobber must remain suspended in the water column and not resting on the river bottom.

(ii) For purposes of this rule, a bobber is a hook-less, floating device that is attached to or slides along the mainline or leader above the hook(s) for the purpose of suspending hook(s) (which are part of the bait, lure or fly) off the bottom of the stream and visually signaling (from the surface of the water) a fish’s strike at the hook(s).

(iii) For purposes of this rule, a leader is a section of line, other than the mainline, extending from the lowermost hook (part of bait, lure, or fly) to the first swivel, weight, bobber, or any other attachment.

Any weight (except the bobber) may be no more than 36-inches from the lowermost hook when suspended vertically. The leader below the bobber must remain suspended in the water column and not resting on the river bottom.

(ii) For purposes of this rule, a bobber is a hook-less, floating device that is attached to or slides along the mainline or leader above the hook(s) for the purpose of suspending hook(s) (which are part of the bait, lure or fly) off the bottom of the stream and visually signaling (from the surface of the water) a fish’s strike at the hook(s).

(iii) For purposes of this rule, a leader is a section of line, other than the mainline, extending from the lowermost hook (part of bait, lure, or fly) to the first swivel, weight, bobber, or any other attachment.

(B) Three Rivers, a tributary of the Nestucca River, is open to angling for adipose fin-clipped spring Chinook and adipose fin-clipped summer steelhead through June 30, 2012.

(i) From June 1 through June 30, 2012, use of leaders longer than 36-inches is prohibited. Hooks are limited to no more than 1 single point, size 3/8-inch gap width (approximately size #2) or smaller hook.

Certified to be Effective: 11-15-12 thru 5-12-13

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-011-0100

Subject: This amended rule adds radio-tagged hatchery steelhead in Northwest Zone streams to the existing exception to non-retention of radio-tagged fish (item 17, found on page 10 of both the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations and the 2013 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations (available around December 16, 2012)). Rule modifications allow retention of radio-tagged fish in conjunction with a planned radio telemetry study in the Alsea and Nehalem basins. This amended rule encompasses the entire Northwest Zone do to the possibility that some radio-tagged hatchery winter steelhead may stray into adjacent basins.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(c) A person who is the owner of an unattended motor-propelled vehicle parked in violation of the restrictions established and posted under OAR 635-008-0146 through 635-008-0151 shall be presumed to have violated 635-008-0151(8)(a). It is an affirmative defense to a prosecution of the registered owner of a vehicle under subsection (8)(a) of this section that the use of the vehicle was not authorized by the owner, either expressly or by implication.

Rules Amended: 635-005-0465

Subject: This amended rule delays the opening of the 2012 commercial ocean Dungeness crab fishing season from December 1 until December 16, 2012 in accordance with the Tri-State Memorandum-Of-Understanding and Preseason Testing Protocol.

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

Closed Season in Pacific Ocean and Columbia River

(1) It is unlawful to take, land or possess Dungeness crab for commercial purposes from the Pacific Ocean or Columbia River from August 15 through December 15.

(2) The season opening for the commercial Ocean Dungeness crab fishery may be delayed in one or more fishing zones based on the results of crab quality testing. The Pre-season Testing Protocol for the Tri-State Coastal Dungeness crab Commercial Fishery (hereafter, “Tri-State Protocol”) specifies the process for establishing fishing zones (section VI) and coordinating the opening of the fishery in Washington, Oregon, and California north of Point Arena (sections IV and V). Therefore, the following sections of the Tri-State Protocol (Revised August, 2011) are hereby incorporated into Oregon Administrative Rule by reference:

(a) Section IV — Season Opening Criteria.

(b) Section V — Test Fishing and Process for Setting the Season Opening Date.

(c) Section VI — Procedure for Establishing Fishing Zones.

(3) It is unlawful to land, receive or buy, Dungeness crab in the first thirty days of the ocean Dungeness crab fishery from a vessel that has not been certified by officials of the State of Oregon, Washington, or California to have been free of Dungeness crab before fishing in the ocean Dungeness crab fishery. In the event the area between Gray’s Harbor, Washington and Point Arena, California is divided into zones with different season opening dates, the ocean Dungeness crab fishery refers to the fishery in that zone for the purposes of this rule.

(4) In the event the area between Gray’s Harbor, Washington and Point Arena, California is divided into zones with different season opening dates, the transfer of a permit from one vessel to another is suspended from the earliest season opening date through thirty days after the latest season opening date, except in the event a vessel is unintentionally destroyed due to fire, capsizing, sinking, or other event.

(5) Upon a determination by the Department that catch in Oregon’s ocean Dungeness crab fishery after May 31 is greater than ten percent of the catch in the previous December 1 through May 31 period, the Director shall adopt a temporary rule closing the commercial season until the following December 1.
