FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 05-83 -- Filed May 4, 2005, 3:24 p.m. , effective May 5, 2005, 12:01 a.m. ]


Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900R.

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: Reopens the sport fishery in concurrent waters consistent with the opening of commercial fishing periods in the select areas. Additional impacts to upriver spring chinook are expected to be minimal and most likely zero. Permanent regulations are reinstated.
