ID: Ask Fish and Game: One-day fishing license

Q. I am an Idaho resident, can I buy a one-day fishing license
and salmon permit? Can I buy a three-day salmon-steelhead
license?

A. Residents can buy a daily fishing license but not a three-day
salmon-steelhead permit. Residents and nonresidents alike may buy a
“license entitling a person to fish in the waters of the state on a
day-to-day basis.” A resident daily fishing license costs $11.50
plus $5 for each additional day purchased at the same time – $12.75
and $6 for nonresidents – but a daily fishing license holder can’t
add a steelhead-salmon permit to their license. Resident anglers
must first buy a season fishing license for $25.75 to buy a
steelhead or salmon permit for $12.75. Nonresidents, however, may
buy a three-day combined fishing license and salmon or steelhead
permit for $37.50. The rules do not allow Idaho residents to buy
the nonresident three-day salmon-steelhead license.
