(2) Waters listed as open during a specific date range that do not reference a particular species are open during the date range for game fish only.
(3) All limits are daily limits, unless otherwise provided.
(4) Beaver ponds located within or adjoining streams that are listed as open to trout and other game fish follow the same rules as the stream, except as otherwise provided.
(5) It is permissible to retain up to two hatchery steelhead in waters where the season is open for game fish or salmon in WAC 220-312-020 through 220-312-060, unless explicitly listed as closed to hatchery steelhead in WAC 220-312-020 through 220-312-060.
(6) A "float" or "bobber" means a hookless, floating device that is attached to or slides along the mainline or leader above the hook(s) for the purpose of suspending hook(s) (which are not part of the bait, lure, or fly) off the bottom of the stream or lake and visually signal (from the surface of the water) a fish's strike at the hook(s).
(7) "Lead jig" means a lure consisting of a hook permanently or temporarily attached directly to a lead weight by any method.
(8) "Lead weight" means material constructed of lead and applied to a fishing line or lure and designed to help keep the hook, bait, or lure underwater.
