DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 11-227 -- Filed September 7, 2011, 1:58 p.m. , effective September 8, 2011 ]


Effective Date of Rule: September 8, 2011.

Purpose: Amend recreational fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900N; and amending WAC 232-28-619.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047 and 77.04.020.

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: The lake will begin draining on September 6 to allow the lake bed to dry out prior to maintenance dredging. The lake capacity has been reduced because of silt deposition in the lake bottom. Dredging is necessary to maintain the lake for spring chinook acclimation prior to release, and for trout fishing opportunities. There is insufficient time to adopt permanent rules.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Date Adopted: September 7, 2011.
