FISH AND WILDLIFE
Effective Date of Rule: April 16, 2010, 8:00 a.m.
Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900X; 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 United States Army Corps of Engineers has coordinated with many partners to provide a fishing event for kids from several elementary classrooms in the Tri-Cities. Closing Hood Park Pond before the event will eliminate premature harvest of catchable-sized trout dedicated to the youth fishing event. There is insufficient time to adopt permanent rules.
