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.

Subject: These rule modifications set the 2012 Columbia River recreational spring Chinook season regulations with descriptions of areas, dates, and bag limits for recreational harvest of adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead. Revisions are consistent with action taken January 26, 2012 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington.

Spring Sport Fishery

(1) The 2012 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 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) The Columbia River is open from January 1 through February 29 from the mouth at Buoy 10 upstream to Beacon Rock 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 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(3) The Columbia River is open March 1 through April 6 except closed March 20; March 27; and April 3 (Tuesdays) in the area from Buoy 10 upstream to Beacon Rock (boat and bank angling); plus bank angling only from Beacon Rock upstream to the Bonneville Dam deadline. Legal boundary for Beacon Rock is defined as: “A deadline marker on the Oregon bank (approximately four miles downstream from Bonneville Dam Powerhouse 1) in a streaight line through the western tip of Pierce Island to a deadline marker on the Washington bank at Beacon Rock.”

(a) Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped salmonids per day, of which only one may be a Chinook.

(b) Effective March 1 through June 15 the daily bag limit in Oregon’s Select Areas will be the same as the mainstem fishery on days when the mainstem Columbia River below Bonneville Dam is open to retention of Chinook. On days when the mainstem Columbia River fishery is closed to Chinook retention, the permanent salmonid bag limit regulations for Select Areas apply.

(4) From the upper and lower ends of Sand Island and corresponding markers on the Oregon shoreline (slough at Rooster Rock State Park) angling for all species is closed from January 1 through April 30.

(5)(a) The Columbia River is open March 16 through May 2 from the Tower Island power lines (approximately 6 miles below The Dalles Dam) upstream to the Oregon/Washington border; plus the Oregon and Washington banks between Bonneville Dam and the Tower Island power lines.

(b) Catch limits of two adult adipose fin-clipped Chinook or steelhead per day; or one of each. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be retained. All non-adipose fin-clipped Chinook salmon and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead must be released immediately unharmed.

(6) Effective March 1 through May 15, the mainstem Columbia River will be open for retention of adipose fin-clipped steelhead and shad only during days and seasons open for retention of adipose fin-clipped spring Chinook.

Youngs Bay Salmon Season

(1) Salmon, white sturgeon, and shad may be taken for commercial purposes in those waters of Youngs Bay.

(a) The 2012 open fishing periods are established in three segments categorized as the winter fishery, subsection (1)(a)(A); the spring fishery, subsection (1)(a)(B); and summer fishery, subsection (1)(a)(C), as follows:

(A) Winter Season:

(i) Entire Youngs Bay: Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from February 12 through March 9 (12 days) starting at 12:00 noon through 6:00 a.m. the following morning (18 hours). Also, 6:00 p.m. until midnight on Sunday March 11 (6 hours) and 10:00 p.m. Thursday March 15 until 4:00 a.m. Friday March 16 (6 hours).

(ii) Upstream of old Youngs Bay Bridge: 6:00 p.m. until midnight Sunday March 18 (6 hours) and 6:00 p.m. until midnight Sunday March 25 (6 hours).

(B) Spring Season: Entire Youngs Bay: 6:00 p.m. to midnight Thursday, April 19 (6 hours); 6:00 p.m. Tuesday April 24 to 6:00 a.m. Wednesday April 25 (12 hours); 6:00 p.m. Thursday April 26 to 6:00 a.m. Friday April 27 (12 hours); Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. until noon the following day (18 hours) beginning Sunday, April 29 through Friday, May 11; and Mondays at noon through Fridays at noon (4 days), beginning Monday, May 14 through Friday, June 15 (20 days total).

(C) Summer Season: Entire Youngs Bay: 6:00 a.m. Wednesdays to 6:00 a.m. Fridays (48 hours) beginning Wednesday June 20 through Friday July 27 (12 fishing days).

(b) The fishing areas for the winter, spring and summer fisheries are:

(A) From February 12 through March 16 and from April 19 through July 27, the fishing area is identified as the waters of Youngs Bay from the Highway 101 Bridge upstream to the upper boundary markers at the confluence of the Klaskanine and Youngs rivers; except for those waters which are closed southerly of the alternate Highway 101 Bridge (Lewis and Clark River).

(B) On March 18 and 25, the fishing area extends from the old Youngs Bay Bridge upstream to the upper boundary markers at the confluence of the Youngs and Klaskanine rivers.

(2) Gill nets may not exceed 1,500 feet (250 fathoms) in length and weight may not exceed two pounds per any fathom. 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 less than 7-inches during the winter season. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches during the spring and summer seasons.

(b) The use of additional weights or anchors attached directly to the leadline is allowed upstream of markers located approximately 200 yards upstream of the mouth of the Walluski River during all Youngs Bay commercial fisheries.

(c) 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) A maximum of two white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fisheries are open. During the fishing periods identified in subsections (1)(a)(A), (1)(a)(B) and (1)(a)(C), the weekly white sturgeon limit applies to combined possessions and sales for all open Select Area fisheries.

(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 stream. It is unlawful in any area to use, operate, or carry aboard a commercial fishing vessel a licensed net or combination of such nets, whether fished singly or separately, in excess of the maximum lawful size or length prescribed for a single net in that area. 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.

(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 winter season, outlined above in subsection (2)(a), it is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is less than 7-inches;

(e) During the spring season, outlined above in subsection (2)(b) it is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is more than 9.75-inches.

(4) A maximum of two white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) that the fishery is open. During the fishing periods identified in subsections (2)(a) and (2)(b) above, the weekly white sturgeon limit applies to combined possessions and sales for all open Select Area fisheries.

(5) Transportation or possession of fish outside the fishing area (except to the sampling station) is unlawful until WDFW staff has biologically sampled individual catches. After sampling, fishers will be issued a transportation prmit by WDFW staff. During the winter season, described in subsection (2)(a) above, fishers are required to call (360) 795-0319 for the location and time of sampling. During the spring season, described in subsection (2)(b) above, a sampling station will be established at WDFW’s Oneida Road boat ramp, about 0.5 miles upstream of the lower Deep River area boundary (USCG navigation marker #16).

Lost Tags and Tag Exchanges

(1) A fee of $15.00 (plus a $2.00 license agent fee) is charged to replace a tag or permit. If the fee paid for the tag or permit that was lost, destroyed or stolen was less than $15, the same fee shall be charged for the duplicate tag or permit. A fee of $5.00 (plus a $2.00 license agent fee) is charged to exchange a tag or permit. Duplicates and exchanges may be obtained only through the Salem headquarters, regional offices of the Department, and designated district offices. Exception: Replacement controlled hunt tags or permits will be issued at no charge only through the Salem headquarters or regional office of the Department if the Department determines that the person never received the original controlled tag or permit mailed from the Salem headquarters office.

(2) A Controlled Buck Deer Tag or Controlled Elk Tag may be exchanged for a general season tag before the opening date of the season for which either tag is valid.

(3) No controlled hunt tag shall be exchanged for another controlled hunt tag, except as described in 635-060-0008(5) and 635-075-0015(3).

(4) A Controlled Antlerless Deer Tag shall not be exchanged.

(5) In the event of the death of a successful controlled hunt applicant before the start of the season for which the tag or permit was issued, the tags of the deceased may be issued to a family member as defined by OAR 635-045-0002. Tag or permit transfer shall require a copy of the death certificate and the original controlled hunt tag or permit, and must be requested by the legal heir to the deceased which shall be presumed by possession of the tag or permit and death certificate.

(6) A “leftover” controlled hunt tag may only be exchanged for a general season tag, but only if the person does not already possess a tag authorized by OAR 635-065-0015(4)(a), (b) or (c) or 635-0065-0015(5)(a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), or (g).

(7) The Commission shall accommodate Oregon residents who have lost preference points because of being called to active military service after June 1, 2002.

(a) The Commission shall accommodate the following individuals called to service at any location: Oregon National Guard.

(b) The Commission shall accommodate the following Oregon residents with military operational commitments: regular members of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard), members of the United States military reserves, and members of the National Guard.

(c) The Commission authorizes the Director to make such accommodations by:

(A) Reinstating preference points existing for a series, plus an additional point for participating in the draw.

(B) Reinstating preference points lost after two consecutive years of not applying for a controlled hunt in that series.

(d) Individuals seeking accommodation pursuant to this rule (or immediate family members acting on their behalf) must make a request in writing or in person to the Salem headquarters office. Each request must include a letter from a supervising officer on official unit letterhead verifying operational commitments.

(8)(a) The Director may reinstate the preference points of a person who the Director determines did not or will not participate in a controlled hunt because of:

(A) Circumstances beyond the person’s control; or

(B) Tragic personal circumstances.

(b) “Tragic personal circumstances” means:

(A) Death or life-threatening injury or illness in the person’s immediate family; or

(B) The person’s own serious injury or illness, which results in the person’s hospitalization. The person need not be hospitalized during the hunt; this rule also applies if preparation for surgery or recovery after hospitalization renders the person incapable of participating in the hunt.

(c) To apply for reinstatement, the person must provide a sworn affidavit providing adequate details and must return the unused tag if it was purchased or a signed affidavit stating the tag was not used. When relying upon tragic personal circumstances, the person must also provide a sworn affidavit by a physician. When relying upon circumstances beyond the person’s control, the person must also provide documentation of the circumstances (such as an accident report or affidavit from an employer).

(d) “Circumstances beyond the person’s control” excludes complaints about the quality of a hunt (including, but not limited to, road closures, inclement weather and work being conducted in the hunt area).

(e) If the Director decides that the person does not qualify for reinstatement, the person may appeal that decision to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission (Commission). The Commission must review the Director’s decision within 60 days after receipt of appeal. The Commission will not take verbal testimony from the person, and the Commission’s decision is final.

(f) If the Director or Commission reinstates a person’s preference point under this subsection, the person will be awarded a new point as when classified as “unsuccessful” in the draw and is not entitled to a refund of license or tag fees.
