[ Order 00-205 -- Filed October 5, 2000, 8:20 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: October 4, 2000.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 232-28-619.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047.

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: Hatchery coho from Forks Creek Hatchery (Willapa Bay) will be planted in South Bend Mill Pond (Pacific County) to provide additional angling opportunity. These hatchery coho are "surplus" or in excess of hatchery broodstock needs.
