Bringing fish from Oregon

I live in Georgetown Id and am planning a salmon/steelhead fishing trip to western Oregon.
What is required for me to transport my fish home (if successful)?
Thanks
Bob B

Answer

Fish that have been harvested in Oregon can be transported to Idaho.  If stopped by a law enforcement officer, you need to possess a valid Oregon fishing license or a proxy statement from the individual harvesting the fish allowing you to possess the fish.

 

No transport of live fish can occur without a valid Live Fish Transport Permit issued by the Idaho Dept. of Fish and Game and signed by the Director.  These can be found on-line in the Fisheries section.
