The Ocean Salmon Management Program

Recent Management Actions and Updates:

10/24/2016 ACTION NOTICE: Fishery managers of the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife have discussed the status of the commercial troll ocean Chinook salmon fishery within state waters (0-3 nautical miles) off the Chetco River at Brookings.

ACTION TAKEN: Beginning Wednesday, October 26, the daily landing and possession limit is increased to 10 Chinook Salmon per vessel in the commercial troll ocean Chinook Salmon fishery within the Chetco River Terminal Area between Twin Rocks and the Oregon/California border. This change will remain in effect through the scheduled close of the season on October 31.

RATIONALE: The Chetco River Fall Chinook commercial troll season opened October 10 with a quota of 300 Chinook Salmon and a daily landing and possession limit of 5 Chinook per vessel. Through October 23 total landings in the fishery stand at 103 Chinook. In order to allow better access to the remaining quota the daily landing limit was increased.

Troll fishermen are reminded of the mandatory reporting within this fishery to 541-867-0300 ext. 252 or to KMZOR.trollreport@state.or.us within one hour of delivery or prior to transport away from the point of landing.

8/26/16 ACTION NOTICE- Recreational Ocean Salmon: NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the recreational fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season action with respect to the recreational salmon fishery in the area from Leadbetter Point to Cape Falcon.

ACTION TAKEN:

  • Within the Columbia River Ocean Salmon Management Area (Leadbetter Point, Washington to Cape Falcon, Oregon), recreational ocean salmon fishing closes effective 11:59 PM on Saturday, August 27th.

RATIONALE AND NOTES: The Coho Salmon quota in this area is expected to be met by the end of the day on Saturday, August 27th. Through Thursday, August 25th an estimated 17,460 Coho Salmon had been landed out of the quota of 18,900 Coho leaving only 1,440 Coho on the quota. Weekday catches have been averaging 733 Coho per day, and the quota is likely to be exceeded by Saturday night.

 

8/10/16 ACTION NOTICE (2 of 2)– Recreational Ocean Salmon : NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the recreational fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the recreational salmon fishery in the area from Leadbetter Point to Cape Falcon.

ACTION TAKEN (Leadbetter Pt. to Cape Falcon: Effective Tuesday, August 16):

  • Bag limit of 2 salmon may include up to 2 Chinook Salmon, all retained Coho Salmon must have a healed adipose fin clip.

RATIONALE AND NOTES: As of August 7 there were 7,009 Chinook remaining on the quota of 10,200, and fishery managers concluded that the risk of reaching the quota early by removing the 1 Chinook limitation and allowing 2 Chinook Salmon per angler was now low enough to allow for the change. The season will still close the earlier of August 31 or attainment of the Coho quota or the Chinook guideline.

 

8/10/16 ACTION NOTICE (1 of 2) - Commercial Troll Salmon: NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll salmon fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the July and August commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from the US/Canada Border to Cape Falcon.

ACTIONS TAKEN:

  • For the commercial troll salmon fishery North of Cape Falcon, OR, beginning on August 15: The open period limit is increased to 300 Chinook per vessel per open period. Vessels must land and deliver all catch within 24 hours of any closure in this fishery.
  • Vessels in possession of salmon caught between Leadbetter Pt., WA and Cape Falcon, OR must land their catch within the area from Leadbetter Pt, WA to Cape Falcon, OR or into Garibaldi, OR. Mandatory reporting within one hour of delivery or prior to transport away from the port of landing is required for all landings into Oregon at 541/867-0300 x271
RATIONALE: During the first three open periods a total of 7,280 Chinook out of the total quota of 21,000 Chinook have been landed. This leaves a remainder of 13,720 Chinook on the quota. With only one remaining open period scheduled for August 15-23, and limited participation by the troll fleet, it is anticipated that the current Chinook open period limit of 225 Chinook would constrain landings unnecessarily. The increased limit of 300 Chinook should provide a more reasonable opportunity to harvest the quota.

 

7/29/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon: NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the July and August commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from the US/Canada Border to Cape Falcon.

ACTIONS TAKEN:

  • For the commercial troll salmon fishery North of Cape Falcon, OR, beginning on August 1: The open period limit is increased to 225 Chinook per vessel per open period. Vessels must land and deliver all catch within 24 hours of any closure in this fishery.
  • Vessels in possession of salmon caught between Leadbetter Pt., WA and Cape Falcon, OR must land their catch within the area from Leadbetter Pt, WA to Cape Falcon, OR or into Garibaldi, OR. Mandatory reporting within one hour of delivery or prior to transport away from the port of landing is required for all landings into Oregon at 541/867-0300 x271

RATIONALE: During the first two open periods a total of 4,140 Chinook out of the total quota of 21,000 Chinook have been landed. This leaves a remainder of 16,860 Chinook on the quota. With only two remaining open periods scheduled in August (8/1-7 and 8/15-23), and limited participation by the troll fleet, it is anticipated that the current Chinook open period limit of 150 Chinook would constrain landings unnecessarily. The increased limit should provide a more reasonable opportunity to harvest the quota.

 

7/20/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon: NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the July and August commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from the US/Canada Border to Cape Falcon.

ACTIONS TAKEN:

  • For the commercial troll salmon fishery between the Queets River, WA and Cape Falcon, OR, beginning on July 22: the open period limits in July and August are increased to 150 Chinook per vessel per open period. Vessels must land and deliver all catch within 24 hours of any closure in this fishery.
  • Vessels in possession of salmon caught between Leadbetter Pt., WA and Cape Falcon, OR must land their catch within the area from Leadbetter Pt, WA to Cape Falcon, OR or into Garibaldi, OR. Mandatory reporting within one hour of delivery or prior to transport away from the port of landing is required for all landings into Oregon at 541/867-0300 x271

RATIONALE: During the first opening a total of 3,810 Chinook out of the total quota of 21,000 Chinook were landed. This leaves a remainder of 18,492 Chinook on the quota. With only three remaining open periods scheduled in July and August (7/22-28, 8/1-7, and 8/15-23), and limited participation by the troll fleet, it is anticipated that the current Chinook open period limit of 80 Chinook would constrain landings unnecessarily. The increased limit should provide a more reasonable opportunity to harvest the quota. In addition, the open period limit for vessels fishing North of the Queets River was increased to 125 Chinook per open period.

 

7/8/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon: NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the commercial troll salmon fishery within the Oregon Klamath Management Zone in the area from Humbug Mt. to the OR/CA border.

ACTION TAKEN: The July quota in Humbug Mt. to OR/CA border is increased from 200 Chinook to 594 Chinook with the impact neutral rollover of the remaining Chinook from the June quota to the July quota period.

NOTES AND RATIONALE: The landings in June from the commercial troll salmon fishery from Humbug Mt. to the OR/CA border totaled 210 Chinook out of the June quota of 720 Chinook. This left a remainder of 510 Chinook from the June quota which modeled to a Klamath fall Chinook impact neutral rollover of 394 Chinook in July. The July quota period opened today (July 8) and will continue through the earlier of July 31 or attainment of the quota. Troll vessels are limited to a daily landing and possession limit of 15 Chinook within this area, and all landings are required to be reported within one hour of landing to the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife at (541)867-0300 ext. 252 or by email to KMZOR.trollreport@state.or.us

 

6/22/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon (4 of 4): NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt.

ACTION TAKEN:

  • The September and October landing week (Thursday through Wednesday) limits from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. was adjusted from 40 Chinook per landing week to 45 Chinook per landing week.
RATIONALE: Due to an administrative error, an incorrect landing week limit was adopted during the April Pacific Fishery Management Council meeting. After the error was identified, it was determined that the appropriate mechanism to correct the error was via an inseason management action. The change in the landing limit has no effect on modeled impacts from fishing activity.

 

6/22/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon (3 of 4): NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from the US/Canada Border through California.

ACTION TAKEN: NOAA Fisheries has provided notice that retention of Pacific halibut caught incidental to the commercial salmon fishery by fishers holding IPHC licenses will continue after June 30 with no change in landing limits or other restrictions, until further notice. The current limits are: 1 halibut per 3 Chinook (1 halibut may be landed outside of the ratio) with no more than 20 total halibut per trip. Retained halibut must be no less than 32 inches in total length.

 

6/22/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon (2 of 4): NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the July and August commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from the US/Canada Border to Cape Falcon.

ACTIONS TAKEN:

  • For the commercial troll salmon fishery between the Queets River, WA and Cape Falcon, OR, the open period limits in July and August are increased to 80 Chinook per vessel per open period. Vessels must land and deliver all catch within 24 hours of any closure in this fishery.
  • Vessels in possession of salmon caught between Leadbetter Pt., WA and Cape Falcon, OR must land their catch within the area from Leadbetter Pt, WA to Cape Falcon, OR or into Garibaldi, OR. Mandatory reporting within one hour of delivery or prior to transport away from the port of landing is required for all landings into Oregon at 541/867-0300 x271
RATIONALE: With only four open periods scheduled in July and August, and limited participation by the troll fleet, it is anticipated that the more conservative 50 Chinook per open period would constrain landings unnecessarily. The increased limit should provide a more reasonable opportunity to harvest the quota.

 

6/22/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon (1 of 4): NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the May and June commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from the US/Canada Border to Cape Falcon.

ACTIONS TAKEN:

  • The commercial salmon fishery from the Leadbetter Pt., Washington to Cape Falcon, Oregon will reopen to commercial salmon troll fishing for all salmon except coho at 12:01 AM, Friday, June 24. The fishery will remain open through 11:59 PM, Thursday, June 30.
  • Vessels are limited to an open period landing and possession limit of 40 Chinook per vessel, and must land and deliver all catch within 24 hours of any closure in this fishery.
  • Vessels in possession of salmon caught between Leadbetter Pt., WA and Cape Falcon, OR must land their catch within the area from Leadbetter Pt, WA to Cape Falcon, OR or into Garibaldi, OR. Mandatory reporting within one hour of delivery or prior to transport away from the port of landing is required for all landings into Oregon at 541/867-0300 x271

RATIONALE: Through the most recent open period, approximately 12,000 Chinook had been harvested from this fishery out of the quota of 14,000 Chinook. This leaves 2,000 Chinook remaining on the quota. The decrease in the open period limit from 65 to 30 Chinook should better allow for access to the bulk of the remaining quota without risk of exceeding it.

Note: Additional area closures, open period limitations, and reporting requirements are in effect for areas N. of the Queets River in Washington.

 

6/8/16 ACTION NOTICE - Commercial Troll Salmon: NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, representatives from the commercial troll fishery, and the Pacific Fishery Management Council, has taken in-season actions with respect to the commercial troll salmon fishery in the area from the US/Canada Border to Cape Falcon.

ACTIONS TAKEN:

  • The commercial salmon fishery from the Leadbetter Pt., Washington to Cape Falcon, Oregon will reopen to commercial salmon troll fishing for all salmon except coho at 12:01 AM, Friday, June 10. The fishery will remain open through 11:59 PM, Thursday, June 16.
  • Vessels are limited to an open period landing and possession limit of 65 Chinook per vessel, and must land and deliver all catch within 24 hours of any closure in this fishery.
  • Vessels in possession of salmon caught between Leadbetter Pt., WA and Cape Falcon, OR must land their catch within the area from Leadbetter Pt, WA to Cape Falcon, OR or into Garibaldi, OR. Mandatory reporting within one hour of delivery or prior to transport away from the port of landing for all landings into Oregon at 541/867-0300 x271

RATIONALE: Approximately 9,600 Chinook have been harvested from this fishery through the most recent open period out of the spring quota of 14,000 Chinook. This leaves 4,400 Chinook remaining on the quota.The adopted increase in the open period limit from 40 to 65 Chinook should better utilize the remaining quota and meet management objectives for this season. Fishery managers will reevaluate the landings next week to determine if changes to the open period or landing limits are needed prior to the next scheduled open period.

Note: Additional area closures, open period limitations, and reporting requirements were adopted for areas N. of the Queets River in Washington.

 

4/22/16 ACTION NOTICE: The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission met today in Bandon, Oregon and took action to adopt the suite of ocean recreational and commercial troll salmon seasons that were recently adopted by the Pacific Fishery Management Council for waters within 3 nautical miles of shore. In addition, a number of terminal area recreational and commercial fall Chinook seasons were adopted by the Commission for ocean waters adjacent to both the Elk River and the Chetco River.

Details are available at www.dfw.state.or.us/MRP/salmon/regulations/regindex.asp

4/14/16 OCEAN SALMON ACTION NOTICE: The Pacific Fishery Management Council finalized their recommendation for ocean salmon seasons on Thursday, April 14.  Draft copies of the adopted seasons can be viewed at http://www.pcouncil.org/2016/04/41865/draft-council-adopted-salmon-management-measures-for-may-2016-april-30-2017-ocean-salmon-fisheries-tables-including-press-release/   Seasons are not official until being signed by the Secretary of Commerce and adopted by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission for waters from 0-3 nautical miles.

The adopted regulations reflect the very challenging issues with poor forecasts for numerous ocean salmon populations.  These salmon have variously been affected by several years of extreme drought conditions in California, and followed last year by poor ocean conditions resulting from the recent El Nino event along the Pacific Coast. 

The commercial troll salmon seasons North of Cape Falcon will have no coho salmon quota this year, and Chinook quotas, season length, and open periods and open period limits.  From Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. the Chinook seasons will have a number of closures throughout the season, reduced weekly landing limits during the fall period, and limited to fishing only in nearshore waters during October.  While the area from Humbug Mt. to the OR/CA border will have reduced June and July quotas from recent years, no fishing allowed in August and September, reduced landing limits, and several additional closed periods in June and July.

For the recreational ocean salmon fishery the season in ocean waters off the Columbia River will be limited to the period of July 1 through August 31 with a hatchery mark selective coho quota of 18,900 and a Chinook quota of 10,200. 

Recreational seasons on the central Oregon Coast from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. opened for Chinook on March 15 and will continue through October 31 without interruption.   Coho seasons will have reduced quotas of 26,000 fin-clipped coho in the hatchery mark selective season from June 25 through August 7, and in the September non-selective season that will open on September 3  and continue through the earlier of September 30 or the quota 7,500 coho.

From Humbug Mt. to the OR/CA border, the recreational Chinook season will open May 28 and continue through August 7, and then reopen for the Labor Day weekend on September 3-5.  This area will also be open for the hatchery mark selective coho season from June 25 through the earlier of August 7 or the overall quota of 26,000 marked coho.

Both commercial troll salmon fishermen and recreational anglers should review the full regulations prior to participating in the ocean salmon fisheries.  Commercial reporting requirements via phone or email remain in effect for all quota managed seasons (Leadbetter Pt. to Cape Falcon, and Humbug Mt. to OR/CA in June and July).

Questions should be directed to Eric Schindler at (541)867-0300 x252 or Jason Edwards at (541)867-0300 x271.

3/13/16 COMMERCIAL TROLL SALMON ACTION NOTICE: The National Marine Fisheries Service in consultation with the Pacific Fishery Management Council, the State of Oregon, the State of California, and fishery representatives has taken the following in-season management action to modify the scheduled April commercial troll Chinook Salmon opening off Oregon:

ACTION TAKEN: The area between Cape Falcon and the Oregon/California Border will remain closed to commercial troll salmon fishing through April 7th. The season for all salmon except coho will be open for commercial troll salmon fishing for the period of April 8-30.

RATIONALE: Fishery managers and industry representatives agreed that this closure was needed to reduce impacts on Klamath River fall Chinook in order to provide more flexibility in the other season options that are under development. Vessels are limited to no more than four spreads per wire; hooks are restricted to single point, single shank barbless hooks; and Chinook must be 28 inches or larger to be retained.

Within the area adjacent to Tillamook Bay, between Twin Rocks and Pyramid Rock, and inside the 15 fathom depth contour, only adipose fin-clipped Chinook may be retained or on board a vessel while fishing prior to August 1.

Seasons from May 1, 2016 through April 30, 2017 are currently being developed. Season alternatives will be reviewed and a final season recommendation made at the Pacific Fishery Management Council public meeting in Vancouver, Washington by April 13.

3/10/16 COMMERCIAL TROLL SALMON ACTION NOTICE: The National Marine Fisheries Service in consultation with the Pacific Fishery Management Council, the State of Oregon, the State of California, and fishery representatives has taken the following in-season management action to modify the scheduled March 15 commercial troll Chinook Salmon opening off Oregon:

The area between Cape Falcon and the Oregon/California Border will NOT open for commercial troll salmon fishing for the period of March 15 through March 31. Fishery managers and industry representatives agreed that this closure was needed to reduce impacts on Klamath River fall Chinook in order to provide more flexibility in the other season options that are under development. Vessels are limited to no more than four spreads per wire; hooks are restricted to single point, single shank barbless hooks; and Chinook must be 28 inches or larger to be retained.

The remaining early season of April 1 through April 30 is still being reviewed and may be modified by further in-season action prior to the scheduled end of the current Pacific Fishery Management Council meeting on March 14.

Within the area adjacent to Tillamook Bay, between Twin Rocks and Pyramid Rock, and inside the 15 fathom depth contour, only adipose fin-clipped Chinook may be retained or on board a vessel while fishing prior to August 1.

Seasons from May 1, 2016 through April 30, 2017 are currently being developed. Season alternatives will be reviewed and a final season recommendation made at the Pacific Fishery Management Council public meeting in Vancouver, Washington by April 13.

3/10/16 RECREATIONAL OCEAN SALMON ACTION NOTICE: The National Marine Fisheries Service in consultation with the Pacific Fishery Management Council, the State of Oregon, the State of California, and fishery representatives has reviewed the recreational Chinook salmon seasons adopted under the 2015 regulation setting process, and the season scheduled to be open for Chinook salmon from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. will be open as scheduled for the period of March 15, 2016 through April 30, 2016. This season is open for all salmon except Coho Salmon, with a bag limit of two salmon per day, and minimum sizes for Chinook Salmon at 24 inches or larger, and steelhead at 20 inches or larger.

Anglers are restricted to no more than two single point barbless hooks when fishing for salmon, and when fishing for any other species if a salmon is on board the vessel.

Anglers fishing in ocean waters adjacent to Tillamook Bay between Twin Rocks and Pyramid Rock and within the 15 fathom depth contour are reminded that only adipose fin-clipped Chinook Salmon may be retained or on board while fishing prior to August 1.

Seasons from May 1, 2016 through April 30, 2017 are currently being developed. Season alternatives will be reviewed and a final season recommendation made at the Pacific Fishery Management Council public meeting in Vancouver, Washington by April 13.

2016 PRE-SEASON PLANNING: OCEAN SALMON MEETING NOTICE: The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's 2016 Ocean Salmon Industry Group meeting (OSIG) is scheduled for Thursday, February 25, 2016. This pre-season planning meeting will provide an early look at the 2016 salmon forecasts, and develop Oregon preferred recreational and commercial ocean salmon fishing concepts to take forward through the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) regulation setting process. The OSIG meeting will be held in the downstairs meeting room at the Hallmark Resort, 744 SW Elizabeth Street, Newport.

The OSIG meeting is open to all ocean sport fishing anglers and charter operators, commercial salmon troll fishers, and any others interested in participating in the development of ocean salmon fishery regulations for the 2016 ocean salmon seasons. During the morning session staff from ODFW will provide background materials and presentations. Following a break for lunch, ODFW staff will work with meeting attendees to develop preferred season alternatives to take forward to the Pacific Fishery Management Council's season setting process. Doors open at 9:30 AM with the presentations scheduled to start at 10:00 AM and conclude by 3:30 PM. There will be a lunch break between 12:00 PM and 1:15 PM. Links to the agenda and briefing materials for the meeting will be posted here as they come available in January and February.

The first of the two salmon season setting meetings by the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Sacramento, California March 8-14 (2001 Point West Way, Sacramento, CA). The meeting in Sacramento will establish a range of alternatives for further review. The final season setting meeting will occur at the Hilton Vancouver Washington April 8-14 (301 W. Sixth Street, Vancouver, WA). More information on these meetings can be found at the PFMC's website.

OSIG Attachments will be posted at the end of this notice as they come available in January and February. All information should be treated as preliminary, and readers should recognize that updated forecasts and information may be made available in future documents from the Pacific Fishery Management Council:

 

Project Overview

The Ocean Sampling Project (Ocean Salmon Management Program (OSMP)) monitors ocean commercial and recreational salmon fisheries for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW). The project collects and analyzes data from Oregon's commercial and recreational ocean salmon fisheries, including catch and fishing effort, recovers these and other sources to assist in the develop of management.

The Ocean Sampling Project is made up of two sub-units: The Commercial Troll Salmon Project (CTSP) and the Ocean Recreational Boat Survey (ORBS). ORBS collects the information nee08/26/2016 11:41 AMrs needed information for ma08/26/2016 11:48 AM

ORBS makes estim 08/10/2016 2:02 PMM RBS estimates total ocean sport effort by boat type (charter and private), and interviews are conducted randomly of ocean boats to generate estimates of catch for both salmon and non-salmon species. All sampled salmon are examined for the presence of a CWT. Additional biological data are collected from salmon and non-salmon species, and anglers are also interviewed regarding released fish species.

The Ocean Sampling Project is staffed by a project leader and an assistant project leader at Newport, and two sampling coordinators; one each at Tillamook and Charleston. The sampling coordinators serve as liaison between field samplers, fishery participants, and program staff at Newport; deliver data and coded wire tags to Newport; and also provide additional sampling when needed. We regularly sample fishery landings at all primary Oregon coastal ports, utilizing approximately 20 to 30 seasonal samplers.
