Non-resident permit verses license.

If I purchase a 3 day or day at a time, non-resident salmon/steelhead permit do I need to purchase a fishing license also? Also, My son will be hunting in Custer County, is there a problem with any resent forest fires damage to the area?

Answer: 

First, on the fire situation in Custer County.  None of the significant fires experienced by Idaho in the summer of 2013 prompted closures in the Salmon/Custer County area.  There have been closures in other parts of the state but the area where your son is hunting was spared.

 

Ok, our 3-day Salmon and Steelhead license includes a three-day fishing license and a salmon/steelhead permit.  It was established to be an inclusive package to allow nonresidents a short-term option to fish for salmon or steelhead.  You can not purchase a salmon or steelhead permit with any other temporary/short-term fishing license.
