DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 02-42 -- Filed March 15, 2002, 2:45 p.m. , effective April 1, 2002, 12:01 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: March 15, 2002.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900W; and 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: Agreement has been reached with Dry Falls State Park (Washington State Parks Department) to allow angler access to Dry Falls Lake about four weeks earlier than normal. This allows added recreational fishing opportunity for Washington anglers. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
