Here is the CES that was filed with the CR 102 Supplemental creating the fall Non Treaty Gillnet seasons. Little different than they presented to anyone.

 Area 2A - Will be open from 7 am to 7 pm (12 hours) on one-day during the week beginning October 6, 2013 using tangle net gear only; 7 am to 7 pm on two-days in the week beginning October 20, 2013 using gill net gear; 7 am to 7 pm on one-day in the week beginning October 27, 2013 using gill net gear; and 6 pm to 6 pm each day for two-days each week in the weeks beginning November 3, 2013 and November 10, 2013 using gill net gear. This schedule for Areas 2A results in a total of 4 12-hour openings and 4 24-hour openings; these opening will occur concurrently with openings in Area 2D.
 Area 2B closed. Area 2B is situated at the mouth of Grays Harbor. It has been closed since 2005 due to impacts to Grays Harbor chum and Chehalis River origin fall Chinook.
 Area 2C Will be open 7 am to 7 pm (12 hours) each day for 2 days in week starting October 27, and 1 day each for weeks starting November 3 and November 10. The schedule in Area 2C is a total of 4 12-hours days.
 Area 2D - Will be open only in that portion of Area 2D east of a north-south line from the confluence of the Hoquiam and Chehalis rivers to Renney Island and north of an easterly line from Renney Island to Range Marker G located on the south shore of Grays Harbor from 7 am to 7 pm on one-day during the week beginning October 6, 2013 using tangle net gear only; remaining opening will occur in the entire area from7 am to 7 pm on two-days in the week beginning October 20, 2013 using gill net gear; 7 am to 7 pm on one-day in the week beginning October 27, 2013 using gill net gear; and 6 pm to 6 pm each day for two-days each week in the weeks beginning November 3, 2013 and November 10, 2013 using gill net gear. This schedule for Areas 2D results in a total of 4 12-hour openings and 4 24-hour openings; these opening will occur concurrently with openings in Area 2A.


Here are the changes side by side. Sorry about the lack of formatting but the first dates in each week are the proposed we knew about. The second is the latest.

Some commenters from the commercial fishing sector claimed that proposed WAC 220-36-023 as outlined in the final CR102 supplemental notice does not provide a meaningful opportunity to fish. They contend that Humptulips River Chinook are forecast at abundance large enough to provide full fishery opportunities. However, the current schedule does not provide any commercial fishing days in areas 2C, the northern portion of the Harbor. This is the area of the Harbor were Chinook impacts are primarily on Humptulips River origin Chinook. In response to the lack of commercial fishing opportunity on abundant Humptulips River Chinook, an alternative Grays Harbor commercial fishery schedule was submitted that provides opportunity for a commercial fishery in area 2C.
An alternative commercial fishing schedule was submitted to WDFW during the August 6, 2013 public hearing. The alternative schedule deviates slightly from the WDFW proposal by moving days later in the season resulting in a 2 tenths of 1 fish increase in impacts to Chehalis Basin natural spawning Chinook. In doing so, a total of 60-hours of fishing time were added in Areas 2A and 2D, and four 12-hour opening in Area 2C. This change would alter the schedule in terms of days of fishing (increased slightly), areas of fishing (increased) and change the type of gear (more gill net and less tangle net gear). When modeled, the proposed revisions to the season keep the conservation outcomes within the total Chehalis Basin natural spawning Chinook impacts available for the WDFW managed commercial fishery.
Below is a side-by-side comparison of the two alternatives. Daily openings in Areas 2A and 2D during October will occur 7:00am 7:00pm (12 hours), during November the openers are 2 consecutive 48 hour periods which open and close at 6:00pm. In Area 2C, daily openings will occur 7:00am 7:00pm (12 hours)

Areas 2A and 2D: WDFW Proposal Alternative
Week beginning (statistical week):
(41) October 6 2 (tangle net) 1 (tangle net)
(42) October 13 1 (tangle net) 0
(43) October 20 2 (tangle net) 2 (gillnet gear)
(44) October 27 2 (tangle net) 1 (gillnet gear)
(45) November 3 0 2 (gillnet gear)
(46) November 10 0 2 (gillnet gear)
Total openings (hours) 7 (84 hours) 8 (144 hours)

Area 2C: WDFW Proposal Alternative
Week beginning (statistical week):
(44) October 27 0 2 (gillnet gear)
(45) November 3 0 1 (gillnet gear)
(46) November 10 0 1 (gillnet gear)
Total openings (hours) 0 (0 hours) 4 (48 hours)
