EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 10-135 -- Filed May 25, 2010, 3:45 p.m. , effective May 25, 2010, 3:45 p.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: 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: Carrie Blake Pond is planted and regulated, in cooperation with the City of Sequim, to provide fishing opportunity for juvenile anglers. An emergency rule is needed to close these waters to all anglers with the exception of juveniles. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
