Two rod

Hey all I tried reading the regulations for using two rod validation in the Tualatin river but I can't find anything on it. Does anyone know if you can use two rods?

page 7 of this years printed regs book- the 2 rod validation is allowed in lakes, ponds, and reservoirs BUT only in streams/rivers when specifically authorized. so if you can't find anything authorizing it in exemptions or a regs update for the stream/river of interest, it is not allowed there.

basically, it's a NO unless you can find something changing that to a YES.
