FISH AND WILDLIFE
Date of Adoption: October 26, 1999.
Purpose: Personal use rules.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900U and 232-28-61900Y; and amending WAC 232-28-619.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.040.
Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.
Reasons for this Finding: Release of surplus hatchery coho adult salmon into a number of lakes will provide for recreational fisheries. Seasonal waters have been extended through November 30, 1999, to allow harvest opportunity throughout the life expectancy of planted coho adult salmon. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
