[ Order 11-171 -- Filed July 28, 2011, 2:29 p.m. , effective August 1, 2011 ]


Effective Date of Rule: August 1, 2011.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900F; 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: To provide additional angling opportunity from boats in this section of the Yakima River. There is insufficient time to adopt permanent rules.
