Inclusions and Modifications

(1) The 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations provide requirements for sport fisheries for marine fish, shellfish, and marine invertebrates in the Pacific Ocean, coastal bays, and beaches, commonly referred to as the Marine 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) For the purposes of this rule, a “sport harvest cap” is defined as the amount that may be impacted (combined landings and other fishery related mortality) by the Oregon sport fishery in a single calendar year. For 2012 the sport harvest caps are:

(a) Black rockfish, 440.8 metric tons.

(b) Cabezon, 17.2 metric tons.

(3) For the purposes of this rule, “Other nearshore rockfish” means the following rockfish species: black and yellow (Sebastes chrysolmelas); brown (S. auriculatus); calico (S. dalli); China (S. nebulosus); copper (S. caurinus); gopher (S. carnatus); grass (S. rastelliger); kelp (S. atrovirens); olive (S. serranoides); quillback (S. maliger); and treefish (S. serriceps).

(4) For the purposes of this rule a “sport landing cap” is defined as the total landings for a given species, or species group, that may be taken in a single calendar year by the ocean boat fishery. For 2012 the sport landing caps are:

(a) Black rockfish and blue rockfish combined, 481.8 metric tons.

(b) Other nearshore rockfish, 13.6 metric tons.

(c) Greenling, 5.2 metric tons.

(5) In addition to the regulations for Marine Fish in the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, the following apply for the sport fishery in the Marine Zone in 2012:

(a) Lingcod (including green colored lingcod): 2 fish daily bag limit.

(b) All rockfish (“sea bass” “snapper”), greenling (“sea trout”), cabezon, skates, and other marine fish species not listed in the 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations in the Marine Zone, located under the category of Species Name, Marine Fish: 7 fish daily bag limit in aggregate (total sum or number), of which no more than one be a cabezon from April 1 through July 20, 2012. Retention of the following species is prohibited:

(A) Yelloweye rockfish;

(B) Canary rockfish; and

(C) Cabezon from January 1, 2012 through March 31, 2012 and from July 21, 2012 through December 31, 2012.

(c) Flatfish (flounder, sole, sanddabs, turbot, and all halibut species except Pacific halibut): 25 fish daily bag limit in aggregate (total sum or number).

(d) Retention of all marine fish listed under the category of Species Name, Marine Fish, except Pacific cod, sablefish, herring, anchovy, smelt, sardine, striped bass, hybrid bass, and offshore pelagic species (excluding leopard shark and soupfin shark), is prohibited when Pacific halibut is retained on the vessel during open days for the all-depth sport fishery for Pacific halibut north of Humbug Mountain. Persons must also consult all publications referenced in OAR 635-039-0080 to determine all rules applicable to the taking of Pacific halibut.

(e) Harvest methods and other specifications for marine fish in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) including the following:

(A) Minimum length for lingcod, 22 inches.

(B) Minimum length for cabezon, 16 inches.

(C) Minimum length for greenling, 10 inches.

(D) May be taken by angling, hand, bow and arrow, spear, gaff hook, snag hook and herring jigs.

(E) Mutilating the fish so the size or species cannot be determined prior to landing or transporting mutilated fish across state waters is prohibited.

(f) Sport fisheries for species in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) and including leopard shark and soupfin shark are open January 1 through December 31, twenty-four hours per day, except as provided in subsections (5)(a) and (5)(d), and ocean waters are closed for these species during April 1 through September 30, outside of the 30-fathom curve (defined by latitude and longitude) as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 71. A 20-fathom, 25-fathom, or 30-fathom curve, as shown on Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 71 may be implemented as the management line as in-season modifications necessitate. In addition, the following management lines may be used to set area specific regulations for inseason action only:

(A) Cape Lookout (45°20’30” N latitude); and

(B) Cape Blanco (42°50’20” N latitude).

(g) The Stonewall Bank Yelloweye Rockfish Conservation Area (YRCA) is defined by coordinates specified in Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations Part 660 Section 70 (October 1, 2011 ed.). Within the YRCA, it is unlawful to fish for, take, or retain species listed in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) of this rule, leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut using recreational fishing gear. A vessel engaged in recreational fishing within the YRCA is prohibited from possessing any species listed in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) of this rule, leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut. Recreational fishing vessels in possession of species listed in subsections (5)(a), (5)(b) and (5)(c) and including leopard shark, soupfin shark, and Pacific halibut may transit the YRCA without fishing gear in the water.

(6) Razor clams may be taken by hand, shovel, or cylindrical gun or tube. The opening of the gun/tube must be either circular or elliptical with the circular gun/tube opening having a minimum outside diameter of 4 inches and the elliptical gun/tube opening having minimum outside diameter dimensions of 4 inches long and 3 inches wide.

Rules Amended: 635-023-0130

Rules Suspended: 635-023-0128(T)

Subject: This amended rule sets the 2012 Fall recreational Chinook salmon season regulations for the mainstem Columbia River, effective on August 1, 2012. Modifications were based on 2012 Non-Indian Columbia River Fall Fishery Chinook Allocation Agreement that was developed during the Pacific Fisheries Management Council (PFMC) and North of Falcon (NOF) meetings in March and April 2012 and are consistent with action taken July 26, 2012 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington. Fall fisheries in 2012 are structured to optimize the harvest of Chinook and coho within Endangered Species Act (ESA) limits and to provide a balanced opportunity for the fishers.

(B) Knappa Slough are all waters bounded by a line from the northerly most marker at the mouth of Blind Slough westerly to a marker on Karlson Island downstream to boundary lines defined by markers on the west end of Minaker Island to markers on Karlson Island and the Oregon shore. The area within a 100 foot radius at the mouth of Big Creek is closed.

(c) Gear restrictions are as follows:

(A) During the fishery, outlined above in subsection (1)(b) and subsection (1)(c), gill nets may not exceed 100 fathoms in length with no weight limit on the lead line. The attachment of additional weight and anchors directly to the lead line is permitted. It is unlawful to use a gill net having a mesh size that is greater than 9.75-inches.

(B) 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.

(C) Nets (or parts of 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.

(2) White sturgeon may not be possessed or sold during the fishing periods identified in subsections (1)(a) above.

(3) Oregon licenses are required in the open waters upstream from the railroad bridge.

(a) Gill nets restricted to 9.75-inch maximum mesh size from August 13 through September 14 and 6-inch maximum mesh size thereafter. Maximum net length 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.

(c) Nets (or parts of 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.

(d) 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.

(4) White sturgeon may not be possessed or sold during the fishing periods identified in subsections (2)(a), (2)(b), and (2)(c) above.

Rules Amended: 635-004-0275

Rules Suspended: 635-004-0275(T)

Subject: This amended rule implements in-season actions previously adopted by the federal government for 2012 Pacific ocean commercial groundfish fisheries, including but not limited to changes in limited entry sablefish DTL fishery trip limits.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

635-004-0275

Scope, Inclusion, and Modification of Rules

(1) The commercial groundfish fishery in the Pacific Ocean off Oregon is jointly managed by the state of Oregon and the federal government through the Pacific Fishery Management Council process. The Code of Federal Regulations provides federal requirements for this fishery, including but not limited to the time, place, and manner of taking groundfish. However, additional regulations may be promulgated subsequently by publication in the Federal Register, and these supersede, to the extent of any inconsistency, the Code of Federal Regulations. Therefore, the following publications are incorporated into Oregon Administrative Rule by reference:

(a) Code of Federal Regulations, Part 660, Subparts C, D, E and F (October 1, 2011 ed.);

(b) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 43, dated May 11, 2011 (76 FR 27508);

(c) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 231, dated December 1, 2011 (76 FR 74725);

(d) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 239, dated December 13, 2011 (76 FR 77415);

(e) Federal Register Vol. 76, No. 245, dated December 21, 2011 (76 FR 79122);

(f) Federal Register Vol. 77, No. 74, dated April 17, 2012 (77 FR 22679); and

(g) Federal Register Vol. 77, No. 80, dated April 25, 2012 (77 FR 24635).

(2) Persons must consult the federal regulations in addition to Division 004 to determine all applicable groundfish fishing requirements. Where federal regulations refer to the fishery management area, that area is extended from shore to three nautical miles from shore coterminous with the Exclusive Economic Zone.

(3) The Commission may adopt additional or modified regulations that are more conservative than federal regulations, in which case Oregon Administrative Rule takes precedence. See OAR 635-004-0205 through 635-004-0235 and 635-004-0280 through 635-004-0365 for additions or modifications to federal groundfish regulations.

(4) Notwithstanding the regulations defined in section (1) of this rule, the National Marine Fisheries Service, by means of Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 245/Wednesday, December 21, 2011, announced inseason actions and management measures effective January 1, 2012, including but not limited to: (a) changes in the trawl rockfish conservation area (RCA); and (b) changes to limited entry and open access sablefish DTL fishery trip limits.

(5) Notwithstanding the regulations defined in section (1) of this rule, the National Marine Fisheries Service, by means of Federal Register/Vol. 77, No. 74/Tuesday, April 17, 2012, announced inseason actions and management measures effective May 1, 2012, including but not limited to changes in the trawl rockfish conservation area (RCA).

(6) Notwithstanding the regulations defined in section (1) of this rule, the National Marine Fisheries Service, by means of Federal Register/Vol. 77, No. 80/Wednesday, April 25, 2012, announces inseason actions and management measures effective May 1, 2012, including but not limited to reduced trip limits for limited entry fixed gear North of 36° N. latitude.

(7) Notwithstanding the regulations defined in section (1) of this rule, the National Marine Fisheries Service, by means of Federal Register/Vol. 77, No. 153/Wednesday, August 8, 2012, announces inseason actions and management measures effective September 1, 2012, including but not limited to: (a) reduced trip limits for the limited entry fixed gear sablefish DTL fishery North of 36° N. latitude.
