May a resident child under the age of 14 fish for salmon without a salmon tag and report catch on adults card?

Answer

Yes, a resident youth may fish for salmon, without a salmon permit, and report the catch of adult salmon over 24" in length on a licensed adult angler's salmon permit.  A resident youth under the age of 14 may also buy their own salmon permit and possess their own daily bag limit of salmon.
