Emergency rule changes

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife issues rule changes that may affect anglers' ability to fish specific species, fisheries, or gear. These updates reflect changes to the Sport Fishing Pamphlet. Rules found in the pamphlet are in effect unless superceded by a rule change.

These are critical rule changes that require immediate action and are good for 120 days or less.
