(2) Subsection (1) of this section applies only if the State Fish and Wildlife Commission by rule determines that laws, rules or regulations of the State of Washington, in substance or effect, contain provisions that make a valid Oregon license lawful in the waters of the Pacific Ocean within three miles of the coast of the State of Oregon or the State of Washington, between the Oregon-Washington boundary and Leadbetter Point, or in the waters of the Columbia River where it forms the Oregon-Washington boundary.
