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 and May 26 through May 27 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 in combination, but only one may be a Chinook, may be retained per day. Catch limits for jacks remain in effect as per the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(3) Effective through June 15, 2012, in Oregon and Washington Select Areas the hatchery adult Chinook daily bag limit will be the same as the adjacent mainstem Columbia River when the mainstem is open for adult Chinook retention. When the adjacent mainstem Columbia River is closed for adult retention, the salmon daily limit will revert to permanent rules.

(4) Effective May 16 through July 31, 2012, only single-point hooks are allowed when angling at Cascade Locks in the area between the boat ramp at the lower end of the locks upstream to the east (upstream) end of the lock wall.

(5) Retention of sockeye salmon is allowed:

(a) May 16 through June 15 from a line projected from Rocky Point on the Washington shore through red buoy #44 to the navigation light at Tongue Point upstream to the I-5 Bridge;

(b) June 16 through July 1 from Astoria-Megler Bridge upstream to Bonneville Dam;

(c) June 16 through July 31 from Bonneville Dam upstream to the OR/WA border; and

(d) All sockeye salmon count as an adult salmonid in the daily limit regardless of size.

(6) The Columbia River is open May 19 and May 20 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.

(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.

(7) For the mainstem Columbia River salmon and steelhead fishery upstream of the Rocky Point-Tongue Point line to the Oregon/Washington border effective 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.

Subject: Amended rule closes the Umatilla River spring Chinook salmon fishery, set in permanent rule to run through 11:59 p.m. June 12, 2012 in the area from the Highway 730 Bridge upstream to Three Mile Dam, and run through 11:59 p.m. June 30, 2012 in the area from Three Mile Dam upstream to reservation boundary located upstream from Highway 11 bridge at Pendleton. The 2012 Umatilla River spring Chinook return has not met pre-season estimates and catch rates have been higher than expected. Low River flows, high water temperatures and increased irrigation demands on river flows are also playing a role in this management decision. The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) co-manage this fishery and operational plans for the species.

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 and May 26 through May 27 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 in combination, but only one may be a Chinook, may be retained per day. Catch limits for jacks remain in effect as per the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(3) Effective through June 15, 2012, in Oregon and Washington Select Areas the hatchery adult Chinook daily bag limit will be the same as the adjacent mainstem Columbia River when the mainstem is open for adult Chinook retention. When the adjacent mainstem Columbia River is closed for adult retention, the salmon daily limit will revert to permanent rules.

(4) Effective May 16 through July 31, 2012, only single-point hooks are allowed when angling at Cascade Locks in the area between the boat ramp at the lower end of the locks upstream to the east (upstream) end of the lock wall.

(5) Retention of sockeye salmon is allowed:

(a) May 16 through June 15 from a line projected from Rocky Point on the Washington shore through red buoy #44 to the navigation light at Tongue Point upstream to the I-5 Bridge;

(b) June 16 through July 1 from Astoria-Megler Bridge upstream to Bonneville Dam;

(c) June 16 through July 31 from Bonneville Dam upstream to the OR/WA border; and

(d) All sockeye salmon count as an adult salmonid in the daily limit regardless of size.

(6) The Columbia River is open May 19 and May 20 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.

(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.

(7) For the mainstem Columbia River salmon and steelhead fishery upstream of the Rocky Point-Tongue Point line to the Oregon/Washington border effective 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.

Rule Caption: Trask River and Three Rivers Angling Regulations Modified Effective June 1, 2012.

Adm. Order No.: DFW 53-2012(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 5-29-2012

Certified to be Effective: 6-1-12 thru 10-31-12

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-014-0090

Subject: These rule modifications delay the spring Chinook fishery closure at the Trask River Hatchery Hole from June 1 until July 1, 2012 in order to allow anglers greater opportunity to harvest hatchery spring Chinook by extending the season 200 feet upstream and 900 feet downstream of the hatchery. Further modifications reduce the ability of anglers to employ illegitimate snagging methods in a segment of the Trask River and Three Rivers by imposing more restrictive gear regulations during the later portion of the spring Chinook angling season.

Subject: The amended rule closes the sport harvest of adipose fin-clipped spring Chinook salmon in the Lower Deschutes River effective June 7, 2012. The Deschutes River fishery open area extends from Sherars Falls downstream to the mouth of the river. All available data indicates the spring Chinook salmon run is not performing as expected. This closure will protect wild fish escapement and ensure that broodstock goals will be met at the basin’s hatcheries even if the run continues its poor performance.

(2) Any person possessing a valid furtaker’s license or hunting license for furbearers is required to fill out and return a completed harvest report form to the Department at 3406 Cherry Avenue NE, Salem, Oregon 97303. The form shall be postmarked by April 15, 2013 for the 2012–2013 seasons and April 15, 2014 for the 2013–2014 seasons. Failure to do so shall deny the license holder the opportunity to purchase a hunting license for furbearers or furtaker’s license for the following furbearer season, unless the non-compliant licensee pays a fee of $50.00 and completes and returns the harvest report form prior to the requested license being issued.

(3) Any person may sell or exchange the hide, carcass, or any part thereof, of any legally taken furbearing or unprotected mammal.

(4) All traps and snares, whether set for furbearing or other unprotected mammals, shall be legibly marked or branded with the owner’s license (brand) number that has been assigned by the Department; except that unmarked traps or snares may be set for nongame mammals unprotected by law or Department regulations by any person or member of his immediate family upon land of which he is the lawful owner. A landowner is required to register the location of such land with the Department and shall possess each year a free landowner’s license before hunting or trapping furbearing mammals.

(2) Ownership tags may be used as foreign export tags.

(3) Each ownership tag authorizes the holder to sell one bobcat or river otter.

(4) Each person shall have an ownership tag affixed to his or her bobcat or river otter pelt at a Department district or regional office within five business days after the season ends.

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.

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).

Black Bear Management Plan

(1) The goal of black bear management is to manage black bear populations to attain the optimum balance among species protection, recreational uses, habitat availability, primary land uses, and other wildlife species.

(2) Objectives to accomplish this goal are to:

(a) Maintain healthy and optimum bear populations while providing optimum recreational benefits, and considering objectives related to other wildlife species and the level of human-bear conflicts.

(b) Work to reduce the number of human-bear conflicts that result in the removal (lethal and nonlethal) of bears.

(c) Develop, refine, and evaluate population abundance estimation through modeling techniques.

(d) Continue to improve basic understanding of black bear management and ecology through applied research.

Rule Caption: Northwest Zone Angling Regulations Modified Effective June 12, 2012.

Adm. Order No.: DFW 63-2012(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 6-12-2012

Certified to be Effective: 6-12-12 thru 10-31-12

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-014-0090

Rules Suspended: 635-019-0090(T)

Subject: This amended rule updates the quota amounts for several Northwest Zone rivers based on data presented to the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Commission at its June 8, 2012 hearing. The Trask River Hatchery Hole closure remains delayed from June 1 until July 1, 2012; and modifications allow anglers greater opportunity to harvest hatchery spring Chinook by extending the season 200 feet upstream and 900 feet downstream of the hatchery. This amended rule also reduces the ability of anglers to employ illegitimate snagging methods in a segment of the Trask River and Three Rivers by continuing restrictive gear regulations during the later portion of the spring Chinook angling season.

Seasonal aggregate applies to all adult non fin-clipped Chinook salmon retained between August 1 and December 31.

(A) The Trask River will be closed from Gold Creek, at the hatchery, 200 feet upstream and 900 feet downstream July 1 through November 30, 2012; and for the Trask River segment from Cedar Creek wooden boat slide (RM 10.9) downstream to Loren’s Drift wooden boat slide (RM 9.0) from June 1 to July 31 angling is restricted to fly angling and bobber angling only.

(i) Bobber angling gear must include a bobber and a leader no longer than 36-inches in length. 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.

(ii) For the purposes of this rule, a leader is defined as described in section (2)(a)(A)(iii) above.

(b) Within the Nehalem Basin (including the North Fork) the following additional rules apply:

(A) Mainstem (bay) closed to all salmon and steelhead angling seaward from a line extending from Nehalem Bay State Park Boat Ramp to Fishery Point July 1 through September 14 and closed to all Chinook salmon angling upstream of Peterson Creek (RM 10.2) July 1 through December 31.

Summer 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) Notwithstanding all other specifications and restrictions in the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations:

(a) Effective June 16 through July 1 the mainstem Columbia River is open to the retention of adipose fin-clipped jack Chinook, adipose fin-clipped adult Chinook and sockeye salmon from the Astoria-Megler Bridge upstream to the Bonneville Dam.

(b) Effective June 15 through July 31 the mainstem Columbia River is open to the retention of adipose fin-clipped adult Chinook and sockeye salmon from Bonneville Dam upstream to the Oregon/Washington border.

(c) The combined daily bag limit for adult salmon and steelhead is two fish. Only adipose fin-clipped Chinook and steelhead may be retained. All sockeye salmon count as an adult salmonid in the daily limit regardless of size.

(3) Effective through July 31, 2012, only single-point hooks are allowed when angling at Cascade Locks in the area between the boat ramp at the lower end of the locks upstream to the east (upstream) end of the lock wall.
