Fire Refunds for Salmon River Anglers

Meeting in Salmon October 5, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission voted to approve license refunds for anglers who purchased short-term fishing licenses to fish on Salmon River float trips which were subsequently cancelled by Forest Service area closures. Segments of the Salmon River and the Middle Fork of the Salmon were closed due to wildfires this summer.

Proof for the refund can include a copy of a Forest Service float permit or documentation of a booking with an outfitter for the time the license covers. Applications must be sent by November 1 to Licenses Section, Fish and Game Headquarters, P.O. Box 25, Boise, ID 83707.
