we live out of state, on vacation, and may want to fish for steelhead one of the days.
Nonresidents can purchase a "daily" fishing license; the first day costs $12.75 and each additional day is $6.00. You can purchase it at any vendor.
If you are interested in Chinook salmon fishing, you can purchase a 3-day salmon/steelhead license. This includes a fishing license and steelhead/salmon permit.
