Spring Sport Fishery

(1) The 2014 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 2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) The Columbia River is open from January 1 through March 31 from the mouth at Buoy 10 upstream to the I-5 Bridge with the following restrictions:

(a) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained.

(b) All non-adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead must be released immediately unharmed.

(c) Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped salmon or two adult adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained per day. Catch limits for jacks remain in effect as per the 2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(3) For the mainstem Columbia River salmon and steelhead fishery upstream of the Rocky Point-Tongue Point line to McNary Dam from February 15 through June 15 it is unlawful when fishing from vessels which are less than 30 feet in length, substantiated by Coast Guard documentation or Marine Board registration, to totally remove from the water any salmon or steelhead required to be released.
