1. 635-005-0465
Season Opening for the Ocean Commercial Dungeness Crab Fishery Delayed
Adopted December 11, 2012: effective December 12, 2012 through June 9, 2013.
This amended rule delays the opening of the 2012-2013 commercial ocean Dungeness crab fishing season from December 16, 2012 until December 31, 2012 in-accordance-with the Tri- State Memorandum-Of-Understanding and Preseason Testing Protocol.

2. 635-023-0095
Bonneville Dam Reservoir Recreational White Sturgeon Fishery
Adopted December 18, 2012: effective January 1, 2013 through February 28, 2013.
This amended rule sets the season for recreational harvest of white sturgeon in the Bonneville Pool and tributaries effective January 1 through Sunday, February 10, 2013. These modifications are consistent with action taken December 18, 2012 by the Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington.

3. 635-019-0090
Morgan Lake in the NE Zone Closed to All Angling
Adopted December 20, 2012: effective January 1, 2013 through April 30, 2013.
This amended rule closes Morgan Lake, in the NE Zone near La Grande, to all angling from January 1 through April 26, 2013. Closing the lake during this period will assist the City of La Grande, owner and operator of the lake, to resolve issues posed by the inadvertent removal of Special Regulations for Morgan Lake from the 2013 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations synopsis.

4. 635-095-0125
Habitat Conservation Stamp
Other Provisions
Adopted December 31, 2012; effective December 31, 2012 through June 28, 2013.
The original rule states that excess stamps from the current year shall be shredded after auditing of sales takes place. This will amend the rule to allow retention of the Habitat Conservation Stamps with numbers corresponding with the prints that are signed by the Governor and the artist. These stamps will be distributed with the sale of the corresponding Governor Edition print.
