Rule to Change: The Special Rules listing of Wenaha River tributaries in Washington has additional rules note to release all steelhead.
New Rule Proposal: The additional rules note should also state "release all bull trout" along with the release all steelhead.
Why the change is needed: This is a wilderness area and bull trout are relatively common in many tributaries. It is important to remind anglers that may fish these waters that ESA listed bull trout may not be retained.
