I wonder if WDFW will write a letter like this to ONP?
The difference is Grand Teton NP is under concurrent jurisdiction in Wyoming, meaning both the state and feds have governing authority. However, the NPS takes the lead.

Olympic and Mt Rainier NPs are exclusive federal jurisdiction, meaning the state has no jurisdiction. That's why in the WDFW fishing regs the boundaries all start/end at the park, even though the rivers flow further into the park. When Kalaloch beach opens for razor clam digs you see WDFW Officers patrolling with NPS LE Rangers. WDFW Officers have no jurisdiction in the park so they essentially help the NPS with clamming enforcement and the NPS handles all the violations.
