Non-resident fishing w/o license.


Does a 12 year old non-resident need to have a licensed person with him in order to legally fish in Idaho. Your website reads that only people 14 and older need a license; but, must they be with someone who has a license or not? Thank you for your attention to this question.

Ok, nonresident children (under 14 years of age) can fish for free if they are with a licensed adult (resident or nonresident).  All fish caught and reduced to possession count towards the licensed individual's daily bag limit.  The only exception is, a nonresident youth can buy their own salmon or steelhead permit and have their own daily bag limit of salmon or steelhead without needing to buy a license.
