Late Fall Salmon Season

(1) Late Fall Salmon Fishery Zones 1–3.

(a) Salmon may be taken for commercial purposes from the Columbia River in Zones 1 through 3, upper deadline 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 during the following fishing periods:

(A) 6:00a.m. to 6:00p.m. Wednesday October 23, 2013 (12 hours); and

(B) 6:00a.m. to 6:00p.m. Friday October 25, 2013 (12 hours).

(b) For the fishing periods described in section (1)(a) above, gear is restricted to unslackened floater drift gill nets with a 6-inch maximum mesh size. Mesh size is determined as described in OAR 635-042-0010(3) except the mesh size for nets with a maximum mesh size of 3-3/4 inches or less is determined by placing three consecutive meshes under hand tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one knot to the outside of the opposite knot of the center mesh. Hand tension means sufficient linear tension to draw opposing knots of meshes into contact. The multiple net rule is in effect for all authorized fishing periods. Nets not authorized for a specific 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 official 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 opposeite the boat is required.

(c) For the fishing periods described in section (1)(a) above white sturgeon and chum salmon may not be possessed or sold by participating vessels. Allowable sales are Chinook, coho and pink salmon and shad.

(d) For the fishing periods described in section (1)(a) above, Grays Bay, Elokomin-A, Cowlitz River, Kalama-A and Lewis-A sanctuaries are in effect.

(2) Late Fall Salmon Fishery Zones 4–5.

(a) Salmon may be taken for commercial purposes from the Columbia River in Zones 4 through 5, lower deadline 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 during the following fishing periods:

(A) 7:00 p.m. Tuesday October 22 to 7 a.m. Wednesday October 23, 2013 (12 hours);

(b) For the fishing periods described in section (2)(a) above, gear is restricted to drift gill nets with an 8-inch minimum mesh size. The multiple net rule is in effect for all authorized fishing periods. Nets not authorized for a specific 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 official 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.

(c) For the fishing periods described in sections (2)(a) above white sturgeon and chum salmon may not be possessed or sold by participating vessels. Allowable sales are Chinook, coho and pink salmon and shad.
