DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 08-119 -- Filed May 30, 2008, 2:22 p.m. , effective June 6, 2008 ]


Effective Date of Rule: June 6, 2008.

Purpose: Amend fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900P; 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: This regulation is necessary to assure a successful juvenile fishing derby. Hundreds of trout will be stocked into Blackman's Lake; closing the lake prior to the event will ensure there are fish for participants to catch. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 1, Amended 0, Repealed 1.

Date Adopted: May 30, 2008.
