I have a two pole permit; can I use it for Chinook salmon or steelhead?



The short answer is, "Yes." Anyone who has a valid resident or nonresident fishing license may buy a two-pole validation that allows the angler to use two poles at the same time except for ice fishing in some Southeast Idaho reservoirs specifically restricted to a single line. All other limits and rules still apply. A two-pole permit validation costs $13.75 and covers all fish, including salmon and steelhead but a two-pole permit doesn't mean two limits.
