Other agencies and partners that manage recreation areas located on US ACE lands are encouraged but not required to comply with this waiver of day-use fees in the areas they manage. In addition, volunteers who participate'in one of USACE's Na- tional Public Lands Day activities will be issued a fee-free coupon if the volunteer site is participating in the coupon program.

Albany RiFle The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission on Sept. 7 approved the 2013 sport fishing regulations at its meeting in Hermiston. The commission action caps a several month process in which members of the public were invited to submit proposals for regulation changes. This year, 26 proposals from the public were adopted by the commission. Among the regulations the Commission adopted: * Restricted the use of bait on the McKenzie River from Hayden Bridge upstream to Hendricks Bridge. * Increased the daily bag limit for smallmouth bass on the Um- pqua River. * Adjusted the daily bag limit on Crane Prairie Reservoir to help create a trophy trout fishery. * Approved largemouth bass bag limits for Wickiup Reservoir. * Changed the salmon/steel- head deadline on the Molalla Riv- er. * Established winter fishing opportunities on Lemolo Reser- voir. * Reduced the annual sturgeon catch limit to two. * Increased daily harvest limit on purple varnish clams to the first 72 taken. * Established a salmon fishing deadline on the Chetco River to protect spawning chinook. * Redefined an angling bound- ary on Rogue River to reflect re- moval of the Gold Ray Dam. * Closed to fishing several southeast Oregon Lahontan trout streams affected by recent fires. A new definition of "artificial lure" that would have included soft molded plastic and rubber worms, eggs and similar bait imitations was rejected by the Commission due to concerns about hooking mortalities to native fish. Soft molded rubber and plastic imitations will continue to be defined as bait. The written synopsis of the 2013 Oregon Sport Fishing Regu- lations will be available beginning Dec. 1. The new rules become ef- fective Jan. 1, 2013.
