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;
(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,
Sockeye, and shad may be taken by drift gillnet for commercial purposes from the
mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Beacon Rock (Zones 1–5 during the
period: 7:00 p.m Wednesday, June 10 to 7:00 a.m. Thursday, June 11, 2015 (12 hours).
(2) An adipose fin-clipped
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).
(c) 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. Other permanent gear regulations remain in effect.
(4) 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.
(5) 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.
(6) Sturgeon, nonadipose
fin-clipped Chinook salmon, and steelhead must be released immediately to the river
with care and with the least possible injury to the fish, or placed 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) Non-adipose fin-clipped
Chinook salmon and all 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.
(7) At least one fisher on
each boat engaged in the fishery must have 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.
(8) Nothing in this section
sets any precedent for any future spring Chinook fishery. The fact that an individual
has attended a live capture training workshop does not entitle the individual 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 already established. 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.
(9) 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. In addition, cooperation with department personel
prior to a fishing period is expected.
(10) Closed waters, as described
in OAR 635-042-0005 for Grays River, Elokomin-B, Cowlitz River, Kalama-B, Lewis-B,
Sandy and Washougal sanctuaries 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.

(b) The fishing areas for
the winter, spring and summer fisheries are:
(A) From February 13 through
March 11 and from April 18 through July 29, 2011, 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 14 and 16, 2011,
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. 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) 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.
(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.

in excess of two pounds per fathom may be stored on boats.
(b) In waters described in
section (2) as South Channel, nets are restricted to 100 fathoms in length with
no weight restrictions 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 more than 9.75-inches. While fishing during the seasons
described in this rule, gillnets up to 250 fathoms in length may be stored on boats.
(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.
(5) A maximum of two white
sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar

beginning February 13 through March 20, 2011; Sunday, March 27 from 7:00 p.m. to
7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours); and Sunday, April 3, 2011 from 7:00
p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the following morning (12 hours) for 13 nights in all. From Sunday,
March 27 through Monday, April 4, 2011 the authorized fishing area is reduced to
extend from the Oneida Road boat ramp (approximately one-half mile up Deep River
from navigation marker 16) upstream to the Highway 4 Bridge.
(b) Spring season: Sunday
and Wednesday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. (12 hours) beginning April 17 through
June 8, 2011 (16 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 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 (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.
(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 downstream of the Highway 4
Bridge at Stephen’s dock.
