Recreationists Reminded Of Craig Mountain Motorized Restrictions

LEWISTON - The Idaho Department of Fish and Game reminds those planning on entering the Craig Mountain Wildlife Management Area south of Lewiston that motorized access of much of the area is restricted in order to reduce the spread of noxious weeds and to provide security to big game. However, non-motorized travel is permitted on all IDFG lands in this area. The following roads through the area will remain open to motorized travel:
  • Eagle Creek to the Salmon River and downstream to Wapshilla Creek;
  • Black Pine road out Wapshilla Ridge to the posted gate;
  • The road beginning _ mile south of Robert Springs east of the Wapshilla Ridge Road east to China Saddle, except all spur roads off of this road are closed.
Motorized use of roads that are posted or behind locked gates is prohibited. All off-road motorized travel is also prohibited, even if not posted. Use of a motorized vehicle for the retrieval of game does not constitute an exception to these regulations. Citations will be issued to those not following the access regulations.
