Does a resident child under the age of 14 need to purchase a fishing license and salmon tag to fish for salmon?

Answer: 

A youth under the age of 14 may fish for salmon without a license and permit BUT in order for them to keep a salmon over 24" in length, it must be recorded on an accompaning adult anglers salmon permit.  If a resident youth wants their own bag limit, they can purchase their own salmon permit (no license required).
