EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 01-120 -- Filed June 22, 2001, 4:04 p.m. , effective June 27, 2001, 12:01 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: June 22, 2001.

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.

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: Availability of surplus salmon at Wallace River hatchery has resulted in fish being available for additional recreational opportunity. Initially up to two hundred adult chinook salmon will be planted in Blackman's Lake. Once the chinook return to the Wallace Hatchery they are not considered to be part of an endangered species listed population. There is insufficient time to promulgate 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 1, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Clarify, Streamline, or Reform Agency Procedures: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
