Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: WAC 220-12-020 Shellfish -- Classification, update scientific name of native little neck clam.

WAC 220-12-090 Classification -- Nonnative aquatic animal species, set rules for harvest of 2 genera of crayfish in family Carbaridae. Allows anglers to harvest nonnative species.

WAC 220-55-220 Two pole endorsement, new section allowing anglers to fish with two lines in all lakes and ponds open to fishing except those on the list of exceptions provided. Provides angler opportunity.

WAC 220-55-230 Columbia River endorsement, provides a list of the places where an adult angler must possess a valid Columbia River endorsement in order to fish for salmon or steelhead. Money collected will provide more selective fisheries in the area.

WAC 220-56-100 Definitions -- Personal-use fishing, changes definition of anti-snagging rule to allow treble hooks on floating gear or if an angler is trolling. Defines "buoyant lure" and "trolling" as part of the anti-snagging rule. Removes from the definition of selective gear rules the provision against fishing from a floating device with an internal combustion engine, so that the provision can be applied as needed.

WAC 220-56-115 Angling gear -- Lawful and unlawful acts, allows anglers with two-pole endorsement to fish with up to two lines in lakes, ponds and reservoirs, unless those bodies of water are listed as an exception in WAC 220-55-220.

WAC 220-56-116 Statewide saltwater hook rules, provides angler opportunity. Removes language allowing anglers to fish for salmon with other than single barbless hooks in any marine area. Provides uniform rules in saltwater and makes release of fish easier.

WAC 220-56-122 Statewide bait rules, makes it unlawful to use shad as bait while fishing for sturgeon. Helps anglers avoid targeting oversize sturgeon. Makes it unlawful to use bait while fishing for tiger muskellunge.

WAC 220-56-123 Statewide freshwater hook rules, makes it unlawful to use more than three hooks per line when fishing in fresh water, unless the angler is using forage fish jigger gear in the waters of the Columbia River downstream from a line between Rocky Point and Tongue Point.

WAC 220-56-124 Unlawful provisions -- Hoodsport Hatchery, provides opportunity for anglers who permanently use a wheelchair and their designated harvesters to fish from the ADA-accessible site at Hoodsport Hatchery.

WAC 220-56-128 Food fish fishing -- Closed areas, allows anglers who permanently use a wheelchair and their designated harvesters to fish from the ADA-accessible site at Hoodsport Hatchery.

WAC 220-56-129 Unclassified freshwater invertebrates and fish, makes it unlawful to retain any freshwater fish not classified as a food fish or game fish. Closes a loophole for anglers who claim to be fishing for unclassified species.

WAC 220-56-130 Unclassified marine invertebrates and fish, closes all harvest of unclassified marine invertebrates or fish. Provides protection for unmanaged populations.

WAC 220-56-185 Marine area codes, corrects reference to a Saratoga Pass Light in description for Area 8-2.

WAC 220-56-230 Bottomfish and halibut -- Closed areas, makes it unlawful to take, fish for, retain, or possess bottomfish from waters deeper than 120 feet in Marine Areas 5-11, 13, and Marine Area 4 east of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line. Makes it unlawful to take, fish for, retain, or possess rockfish taken for personal use in Marine Areas 6-11 and 13. Provides protection for deepwater species that cannot be released alive after bring [being] brought to the surface from depth. Provides protection for small stocks of rockfish in Puget Sound.

WAC 220-56-235 Possession limits -- Bottomfish, states that only black or blue rockfish may be retained in Marine Area 4 east of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line and Marine Area 5. All other areas are closed to the retention of rockfish. Rockfish may be taken by spearfishing in Marine Area 5. Provides protection for rockfish stocks. Minimum and maximum size limits for lingcod apply to spearfishers as well as anglers. Provides protection for large broodstock.

WAC 220-56-240 Daily limits forage fish and other food fish not otherwise provided for, sets a daily limit of two for these fish. Provides protection for unmanaged populations.

WAC 220-56-250 Lingcod -- Areas and seasons, synchronizes the season for divers with that of anglers.

WAC 220-56-265 Forage fish -- Lawful gear, removes disability license language and replaces it with a reduced fee license or designated harvest card. Is for housekeeping purposes.

WAC 220-56-282 Sturgeon -- Areas, seasons, limits and unlawful acts, makes it unlawful to fish for sturgeon with shad as bait. Limits an angler's ability to target oversized sturgeon.

WAC 220-56-310 Shellfish -- Daily limits, reduces daily limit for scallops from 12 to 6 and Dungeness crab daily limit from 5 to 4 in Puget Sound. Provides protection for scallop stocks and for Dungeness crab, and reduces the daily limit due to another proposal to have crabbing open on two weekend days instead of one.

WAC 220-56-330 Crab -- Areas and seasons, changes open days of the week from Wednesday through Saturday to Friday through Monday in Marine Areas 6, 7, 8-1, 8-2, 9, 10, 11, and 12. Allows harvest on both weekend days.

WAC 220-56-350 Clams other than razor clams, mussels -- Areas and seasons, DNR 85 and South Dougall Point are removed from the rule, opening them year-round. Potlatch East is removed from rule, as it is now in private ownership. Silverdale Waterfront Park is renamed, and state-owned tidelands are opened at Oakland Bay.

WAC 220-56-380 Oysters -- Areas and seasons, DNR 57-B, DNR 85, and South Dougall Point are removed from the rule, opening them year-round. Potlatch East and Cushman (Saltwater) Park are removed from rule because these beaches are now in private ownership. Kayak Point, Pitt Island, and part of Purdy Spit County Park are closed all year. Other oyster beach seasons are adjusted to match clam openings to ease enforcement and lessen confusion.

WAC 220-56-385 Oysters -- Unlawful acts, conflicting language is removed, making it clear that oysters must be shucked before being removed from the beach.

WAC 220-56-500 Game fish seasons, rivers, streams, and beaver ponds draining into Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca are closed to fishing unless listed as open. Provides protection in many nursery areas for anadromous fish. Opportunity is provided for anglers who permanently use a wheelchair and their designated harvesters to fish from the ADA-accessible site at Hoodsport Hatchery.

WAC 232-12-064 Live wildlife, makes it unlawful to take live unclassified marine invertebrates and fish without a permit. Provides protection for unmanaged populations. Other changes in this rule were made as part of WSR 09-16-146, filed on August 5, 2009, to correct WAC references and punctuation errors.

WAC 232-28-619 Washington food fish and game fish -- Freshwater exceptions to statewide rules, implements change in game fish seasons in rivers, streams and beaver ponds draining into Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, as noted in WAC 220-56-500. Wild steelhead harvest is closed in the Pysht, Hoko, and Green/Duwamish rivers to protect weak stocks. Wild steelhead retention seasons are adjusted in all open areas to begin February 16 rather than December 1, to provide protection for the early portion of the runs. Single barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River from the mouth to McNary Dam, to ease the release of fish. Sturgeon sanctuary areas are closed in the upper Columbia and Snake rivers to protect large broodstock. Trout rules in many South Sound lakes are changed to 5 fish, with no more than 2 over 14" in length, to better allocate large fish. Selective gear rules are added to several coastal rivers for protection of wild steelhead. Closed areas are added to Sprague Lake to protect nesting waterbirds. Use of small lead tackle is restricted in several lakes to protect nesting areas for loons. A limited-entry fishery is proposed for Spirit Lake if USFS approval for entry is attained. Other rules are adjusted to protect ESA-listed species or provide more angling opportunity or quality fisheries.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: See Purpose above.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 77.12.047.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: Washington department of fish and wildlife, governmental.
