Page 7 Hells Canyon Journal August 18, 2008 by John GarrigOs Sponsored by: t~id ~ark Wil//a~s (#egon ('('t3 ~ 112481 Tel: 541-742-7019 Fax: 541-742-7015 u,wu,.d~tuidm twkwil/ Those who are planning a coastal angling excursion in the near future to take ad- vantage of another stellar salmon season should be forewarned that the Oregon Stae Police and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife have increased en- forcement efforts in re- sponse to increased viola- tions. Since the end of June, an- glers have been averaging more than one salmon per trip; keeping illegal fish when presented with such averages seems quite foolish. Yet of the boats checked in the month of July by state offic- ers, 30 to 80 percent were in violation each day. In one week, game officers in New- port seized 19 fish that were landed in violation of state angling laws. One chinook was shorter than the 18-inch minimum and 18 coho had intact adipose fins, which most likely meant the fish were wild and not legal to keep. The adipose fin is a small fleshy fin located between the tail and dorsal fins, which is clipped offin hatchery opera- tions before fish are released into waters as juveniles. Anglers are being urged to pay more attention to the laws as fisheries managers wish not to be placed in the posi- tion of advocating more con- servative seasons due to low compliance rates by a small segment of anglers. Enforcement efforts are on the increase on the Umpqua as well, for much the same reasons. Maj or violations are occur- summer steelhead are hold- ing to beat the heat. Accord- ing to the state officer on the scene, anglers are harassing and snagging summer steel- head and trespassing through private property on their way to and from the river. An- glers have also been exceed- ing their limit, sorting through their catch, releas- ing wild fish harmed and leav- ing smaller steelhead on the river bank. The OSP will be increas- ing patrols as the fish have been "taking a serious hit," according to Senior Trooper Don Frerichs. About two-thirds of the run have already made their way upstream. The late portion of the run, which is usually al- ready stressed by high water temperatures, are holding in the lower river earlier than usual making them easy prey for unethical anglers. Violations of Oregon's sport fishing rules is a class A misdemeanor and can result in a fine of up to $5,000 and imprisonment of up to one year. It has been a number of years since salmon and steel- head numbers have been high enough to warrant serious pursuit from anglers. To have the season and the image of anglers marred by the thoughtless acts of a few is disheartening. Should you spot any violations while on the water or in the field, please do not hesitate to re- port them immediately to the proper authorities. In related news, the Or- egon Fish and Wildlife Com- mission voted to change the most hatchery fish are fin clipped cleanly, some end up with a partial clip or stub or sometimes even half a fin. State regulations currently defined the fin clip as, "A healed scar where the adi- pose fin has been removed in its entirety." This has cre- ated problems for law-abid- ing anglers as most of us have released partially clipped fish or seen others do it. Others of us have kept such fish and wondered if such were legal. The definition was changed to read simply "a healed scar where a fish fin has been clipped." The OSP wanted the rules to stay the same and to al- low officers in the field to cite those anglers who bla- tantly violated the law. Most state game officers were able to use their good judgment, but a few would always ad- here strictly to the letter of the law, thus making viola- tors out of honest anglers. These changes do not go into effect until next year so until then, play it safe and keep only those fish with com- pletely clipped and healed fins. Or hope that the game officer inspecting your catch has a modicum of common sense. Local- Water tempera- tures in the area reservoirs has slipped just below the 70- degree mark. Angling for warm-water species will con- tinue to be good for the near future. Crappie angling has been slow as the fish are post- spawn. They will be grouping up soon and fish-finders will come in handy to locate the bow. Crappie angling is slow in Oxbow and Hells Canyon reservoirs but improving in Brownlee. The cemetery hole and the waters near Moun- tain Man Lodge have been good spots for crappie. There is a twelve-inch minimum for bass in Brownlee. Perch and bluegill angling have been good using worms. Hells Canyon Reservoir has been good or better for trout while trolling deep with ford fenders. The crappie are grouping up here as well and should begin biting with en- thusiasm in the next week or SO. For those floating through the canyon, bass and trout angling has been very good. Work the eddies for bass and near tributary streams for some trout angling. Finally, a note to mention the passing of one of our tried and true hunting compan- ions. Good dog Trey has gone to that big pheasant field in the sky to hopefully join Gus in the hunt. Fifteen years is a long span for a hard-working hunting dog, but they were good years and he will be sorely missed in our house- hold. Already the discussions have begun about a pup and those qualities best suited for our family. At this time, we cannot settle upon a size much less a breed, so I look forward to much debate on the subject in the near fu- ture. At one time the hunter's choices were somewhat lim- ited in choice of dog breeds. Here in the West, it seemed that Labrador retrievers were the choice, and all other breeds a poor second. Now the options are only as lim- ited as one's pocketbook and the amount of time one wishes to expend in re- search.
