DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 10-59 -- Filed March 18, 2010, 4:34 p.m. , effective April 24, 2010 ]


Effective Date of Rule: April 24, 2010.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900E; 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: These daily catch limit rules are intended to extend the time that larger trout (including triploid trout) are available, ensuring opportunity for more anglers. These rules are interim until permanent rules take effect May 1, 2010.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
