FISH AND WILDLIFE
Effective Date of Rule: August 1, 2012.
Purpose: Amend recreational fishing rules.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900Y; 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 Union Gap-to-Selah Gap section of the Yakima River below the mouth of the Naches River is large enough to be fished safely by anglers using small boats and jet sleds equipped with internal combustion motors. Allowing internal combustion motors will provide additional angling opportunity from boats in this section of the Yakima River. There is sufficient time to adopt permanent rules.
