FISH AND WILDLIFE
Date of Adoption: April 1, 2004.
Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900T; and amending WAC 232-28-619.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047.
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: This regulation is necessary to assure a safe and successful Fishing Kids event. The fish will be planted two days prior to the event to better acclimate them before the event. Several thousand fish will be placed into netted areas along the shoreline of this pond. On the day of the event preregistered kids will be allowed to fish in these netted areas. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
