Fishing Gear

(1) As used in these Columbia River fishing rules, gill net includes drift gill net, floater gill net, diver gill net, and is a monofilament or multifilament mesh net with a cork and lead line which is in a position to drift with the tide or current at all times while it is being fished. There must be sufficient buoyancy in the corks and/or floats on the cork line so the net is free to drift with the current. The lead or weight on the lead line of a gill net shall not exceed two pounds in total weight on any one fathom, measurement to be taken along the cork line of the net. However, should extra or added weights appear necessary to operate a net, permission to use in excess of two pounds weight per fathom of net may be granted by the Director upon written application which includes adequate justification for the additional leads or weights.

(2) It is unlawful:

(a) For a gill net in whole or in part to be anchored, tied, staked, fixed, or attached to the bottom, shore, or a beached boat; left unattended at any time it is fished; or attended by more than one boat while being fished;

(b) To take any species of salmon from the Columbia River for commercial purposes by any means other than by gill net, beach seine, or purse seine;

(c) To fish more than one gill net from a licensed commercial fishing boat at any one time;

(d) To fish with or have on the boat while fishing a gill net which exceeds 1,500 feet in length;

(e) To fish with or have on the boat while fishing any gill net of a mesh size not authorized for use at that time, except:

(A) During December 1–March 31 when the following applies:

(i) While fishing during open salmon and/or sturgeon seasons, smelt gill nets with a mesh size not more than two inches may be onboard the boat;

(ii) While fishing during open smelt seasons, gill nets with a mesh size greater than two inches may be onboard the boat.

(B) Nets with a minimum mesh size of 9.0 inches may be onboard the boat.

(C) When specifically authorized, nets not lawful for use at that time and area may be onboard the boat 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.

(f) Fish with or have on the boat while fishing any gill net of a mesh size greater than 9-3/4 inches, except that snagging nets as described in ORS 509.240 are permitted;

(g) Fish with or have on the boat while fishing a gill net which does not meet the construction requirements for a gill net as set forth in section (1) of this rule, except while fishing during the Tongue Point Select Area Salmon Season (OAR 635-042-0170) gill nets with leadline in excess of two pounds per fathom may be stored on the boat.

(3) The mesh size of any gill net is determined only after the meshes are wet from soaking in water not less than one hour. Three consecutive meshes are then placed under ten pounds of vertical tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one vertical knot to the outside of the opposite vertical knot of the center mesh.

(4) As used in these rules, "slackers" means a single piece of material or cord, not webbing or mesh, connected vertically or woven in the mesh of the net between the cork and lead lines. It is used to tie netting in a shortened state to give the net surface flexibility.

(5) 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.

(6) The use of a “chafing strip panel” attached to the bottom of the net is allowed. A “chafing strip panel” consists of no more than 60 inches of non-mono-filament webbing (such as nylon seine web or polyethylene trawl web) with a maximum mesh size of 3.5 inches. There are no restrictions associated with hangings used to connect the net to the chafing panel or the net or chafing panel to the leadline or corkline.

Spring Chinook Gillnet and Tangle Net Fisheries

(1) Adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon, sturgeon and shad may be taken by gillnet or tangle net for commercial purposes from the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Kelley Point (Zones 1, 3 and part of Zone 4).

(a) Individual fishing periods will not exceed sixteen hours in length during small mesh fisheries and twenty-four hours in length during large mesh fisheries. Fishing periods may occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending upon results from test fisheries or full fleet fisheries conducted prior to each specified weekday.

(b) White sturgeon possession and sales restrictions by each participating vessel will be determined inseason based on gear type and number of fish remaining on the fish guideline.

(2) An adipose fin clip salmon is defined as a hatchery salmon with a clipped adipose fin and having a healed scar at the location of the fin. The adipose fin is the small fatty fin on salmonids located between the dorsal fin and tail.

(3) During the spring Chinook gillnet fishery:

(a) It is unlawful to use a gillnet having a mesh size less than 8 inches or more than 9-3/4 inches.

(b) Mesh size for the fishery is determined as described in OAR 635-042-0010(4).

(4) During the spring Chinook tangle net fishery:

(a) It is unlawful to use other than a single-wall multi-filament net. Monofilament tangle nets are not allowed. Maximum mesh size is 4-1/4 inches stretched taut.

(b) Mesh size is determined by placing three consecutive meshes under hand tension and the measurement is taken from the inside of one vertical knot to the outside of the opposite vertical knot of the center mesh. Hand tension means sufficient linear tension to draw opposing knots of meshes into contact.

(5) Nets shall not exceed 900 feet (150 fathoms) in length. 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.

(6) On tangle nets, an optional use of a steelhead excluder panel of mesh may be hung between the corkline and the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net. The excluder panel web must be a minimum mesh size of 12 inches when stretched taut under hand tension. Monofilament mesh is allowed for the excluder panel. The excluder panel (including any associated hangings) must be a minimum of 5 linear feet in depth and not exceed 10 linear feet in depth, as measured from the corkline to the upper margin of the tangle net mesh as the net hangs naturally from a taut corkline. Weedlines or droppers (bobber-type) may be used in place of the steelhead excluder panel. A weedline-type excluder means the net is suspended below the corkline by lines of no less than five feet in length between the corkline and the upper margin of the tangle net. A dropper-type excluder means the entire net is suspended below the surface of the water by lines of no less than five feet in length extending from individual surface floats to a submersed corkline. The corkline cannot be capable of floating the net in its entirety (including the leadline) independent of the attached floats. Weedlines or droppers must extend a minimum of 5 feet above the 4-1/4 inch maximum mesh size tangle net.

(a) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, may extend to a maximum length of 1,050 feet (175 fathoms).

(b) Tangle nets constructed with a steelhead excluder panel, weedlines, or droppers, along with a red cork every 25 fathoms as required in section (5) above, must have two red corks at each end of the net.

(7) There are no restrictions on the hang ratio. The hang ratio is used to horizontally add slack to the net. The hang ratio is determined by the length of the web per length of the corkline.

(8) There are no restrictions on the use of slackers or stringers to slacken the net vertically.

(9) Nets shall be fished for no longer than 45 minutes per set. The time of fishing is measured from when the first mesh of the net is deployed into the water until the last mesh of the net is fully retrieved from the water.

(10) It is unlawful for a net in whole or in part to be anchored, tied, staked, fixed, or attached to the bottom, shore, or a beached boat; left unattended at any time it is fished; or attended by more than one boat while being fished.

(11) It is unlawful to fish more than one net from a licensed commercial fishing boat at any one time.

(12) Nets fished from sunset to sunrise shall have lighted buoys on both ends of the net unless the net is attached to the boat then one lighted buoy on the opposite end of the net from the boat is required.

(13) Non-legal sturgeon, nonadipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon, and steelhead must be released immediately with care and the least possible injury to the fish to the river without violence or into an operating recovery box.

(a) One operating recovery box with two chambers or two operating recovery boxes with one chamber each to aid survival of released fish must be on board each fishing vessel participating in the fishery. Recovery boxes shall be operating during any time that a net is being retrieved or picked.

(b) All salmon and steelhead that are bleeding, in lethargic condition, or appearing dead must be placed in the recovery box for rehabilitation purposes prior to release to the river.

(c) Each chamber of the recovery box must meet the following dimensions as measured from within the box; the inside length measurement must be at or within 39 1/2 to 48 inches, the inside width measurement must be at or within 8 to 10 inches, and the inside height measurement must be at or within 14 to 16 inches.

(d) Each chamber of the recovery box must include an operating water pumping system capable of delivering a minimum flow of 16 gallons per minute not to exceed 20 gallons per minute of fresh river water into each chamber. The fisher must demonstrate to the Department and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife employees, fish and wildlife enforcement officers, or other peace officers, upon request, that the pumping system is delivering the proper volume of fresh river water into each chamber.

(e) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water inlet hole between 3/4 inch and 1 inch in diameter, centered horizontally across the door or wall of chamber and 1-3/4 inches from the floor of the chamber.

(f) Each chamber of the recovery box must include a water outlet that is at least 1-1/2 inches in diameter. The center of the outlet hole must be located a minimum of 12 inches above the floor of the box or chamber, on either the same or opposite end as the inlet.

(g) All fish placed in recovery boxes must be released to the river prior to landing or docking.

(14) At least one fisher on each boat engaged in the fishery must have in possession a valid certificate issued by a representative of the Department or the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife that indicates the fisher had attended a one-day workshop hosted by the Department or Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to educate fishers on regulations and best methods for conduct of the fishery. No individual may obtain more than one Live Capture Fishery Certificate. The certificate must be displayed to the Department and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife employees, fish and wildlife enforcement officers, or other peace officers upon request.

(15) Nothing in this section sets any precedent for any fishery after the 2006 spring Chinook fishery. The fact that an individual held a Live Capture Fishery Certificate in spring 2006 does not entitle the certificate holder to participate in any other fishery. If the Department authorizes a Live Capture fishery in the spring or at any other time, the Department may establish qualifications and requirements that are different from those established for 2006. In particular, the Department may consider an individual’s compliance with these rules in determining that individual’s eligibility to participate in any future Live Capture fisheries.

(16) As authorized by OAR-635-006-0140 owners or operators of commercial fishing vessels must cooperate with Department fishery observers, or observers collecting data for the Department, when asked by the Department to carry and accommodate an observer on fishing trips for observation and sampling during an open fishery.

(17) Closed waters, as described in OAR 635-042-0005 for Grays River, Elokomin-B sanctuary, Abernathy Creek, Cowlitz River, Kalama-B sanctuary, and Lewis-B sanctuary are in effect during the open fishing periods identified.

Coho Target Fishery

(1) Salmon may be taken in the Columbia River for commercial purposes in all of, or portions of Zones 1–5 (described in OAR 635-042-0001). This is a target fishery for coho; however, chinook may at times be taken.

(2) The open fishing period and areas are determined annually.

(3) Nets are to be hung even with no strings, slackers, trammels, or riplines used to slacken nets. Riplines are allowed providing they do not slacken the net. Maximum mesh size is six inches.

(4) Closed areas are set forth in OAR 635-042-0005 and include the larger (B) sanctuary at Elokomin River and the (B) Lewis River sanctuary.

Youngs Bay Salmon Season

(1) Chinook, coho pink, and sockeye salmon and shad may be taken for commercial purposes in those waters of Youngs Bay described as all waters from the new Highway 101 bridge upstream to the upper boundary markers at Battle Creek Slough; including the lower Walluski River upstream to the Highway 202 bridge and the lower Lewis and Clark River upstream to the overhead power lines immediately upstream of Barrett Slough. Open fishing periods are as follows:

(A) 7:00 p.m. Tuesdays through 7:00 a.m. Thursdays, weekly from August 5 through August 21, 2014 (three 36-hour periods);

(B) 7:00 p.m. Monday, August 25 through 7:00 a.m. Friday, August 29, 2014 (3.5 days); and

(C) 7:00 p.m. Monday, September 1 through noon Friday, October 31, 2014 (61 days).

(2) Gill nets may not exceed 1,500 feet (250 fathoms) in length and weight may not exceed two pounds per any fathom except the use of additional weights and/or anchors attached directly to the leadline is allowed upstream of markers located approximately 200 yards upstream of the mouth of the Walluski River and the upper deadline at Battle Creek Slough and in the Lewis and Clark River from the Alternate Highway 101 bridge upstream to the overhead power lines immediately upstream of Barrett Slough. 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.

(a) It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75 inches through August 21 and more than 6 inches thereafter. Nets that are fished at any time between official sunset and official 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.

(b) Nets not specifically authorized for use in these areas may be onboard a 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.

(3) Non-resident commercial fishing and boat licenses are not required for Washington fishers participating in Youngs Bay commercial fisheries. A valid fishing and boat license issued by the state of Washington is considered adequate for participation in this fishery. The open area for non-resident commercial fishers includes all areas open for commercial fishing.

Deep River Select Area Salmon Season

(1) Chinook, coho pink, and sockeye salmon and shad may be taken for commercial purposes from a line through the US Coast Guard navigation marker #16 southwest to a marker on the Washington shore, upstream to the town of Deep River.

(2) The fishing seasons are open 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. (12 hours) on the following nights:

Mondays and Thursdays from August 18-29, 2014 (4 nights);

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from September 1–12, 2014 (8 nights);

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from September 15–27, 2014 (10 nights);

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from September 29–October 17, 2014 (12 nights); and

Monday night October 20, 2014 and Thursday night October 23, 2014 (2 nights).

(3) Gear restrictions are as follows:

(a) Gill nets may not exceed 100 fathoms in length and there is no weight limit on the lead line. The attachment of additional weight and anchors directly to the lead line is permitted. Nets may not be tied off to stationary structures and may not fully cross navigation channel.

(b) It is unlawful to operate in any river, stream or channel any gill net longer than three-fourths the width of the river, stream, or channel. “River, stream, or channel width” is defined as bank-to-bank, where the water meets the banks, regardless of the time of tide or the water level. 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.

(c) Nets that are fished at any time between official sunset and official 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.

(d) During the seasons, outlined above in section (2), it is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches through September 12, and more than 6-inches thereafter.
