FISH AND WILDLIFE
[Order 19-66—Filed April 3, 2019, 3:21 p.m., effective April 17, 2019]
Effective Date of Rule: April 17, 2019.
Purpose: Amends freshwater recreational rules for Sarg Hubbard Park Pond.
Citation of Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-312-05000E; and amending WAC 220-312-050.
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: This rule change is necessary to ensure a successful youth fishing event. Several thousand rainbow trout will be stocked prior to the event for acclimation. This helps ensure they will bite while the kids are fishing. During the event, only registered kids will be allowed to fish. There is insufficient time to adopt permanent rules.
