635-013-0004

Inclusions and Modifications

(1) OAR 635-013-0005 through OAR 635-013-0009 modify or are in addition to provisions contained in Code of Federal Regulations, Title 50, Part 660, Subparts A and H, and the 2006 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 50, Part 660, Subparts A and H, and the 2006 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations contain requirements for sport salmon angling in the Pacific Ocean off the Oregon coast. However, additional regulations may be adopted from time to time, and, to the extent of any inconsistency, they supersede the published federal regulations and the 2006 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations. This means that persons must consult not only the federal regulations and the published sport fishing regulations but also the Department's web page to determine all applicable sport fishing regulations.

(3) This rule contains requirements that modify sport salmon angling regulations off the Oregon coast. The following modifications are organized in sections that apply to the ocean sport salmon fishery in general and within management zones established by the Pacific Fishery Management Council and enacted by Federal Regulations (CFR, Title 50, Part 660, Subparts A and H).

(1) In addition to the open seasons prescribed in OAR 635-013-0004 there are open seasons for chinook salmon in the areas described in Sections (2) and (3) of this rule.

(2) The Pacific Ocean waters inside an area south of Twin Rocks (45835'49" N. lat.) and north of Pyramid Rock (45829'45" N. lat.) and seaward three nautical miles offshore are open for chinook salmon March 15-November 15.

(3) A triangular area offshore is open to salmon angling for fin-clipped chinook salmon from March 15 through July 31 and open to angling for all chinook from August 1 through November 15. This triangular area extends from the green buoy approximately one-half mile offshore from the mouth of Tillamook Bay northeasterly to Twin Rocks (4535'49" N. lat.) and southeasterly to Pyramid Rock (4529'49" N. lat.).

(4) During the open season for adipose fin-clipped coho salmon in the ocean, the Terminal Area and the Triangular Control Zone described in sections (2) and (3) of this rule are open to angling for salmon consistent with federal sport salmon management measures for the area from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain.
