WDFW Rule Proposal Recommendation

Not Recommended for further consideration     Reference ID: DFW526457

The present rule is consistent with the agency's stream strategy, which is intended to protect wild juvenile steelhead. This river has not been meeting escapement objectives for steelhead so we recommend the current rule remains in place.
