I am an Idaho resident, can I buy a one-day fishing license and salmon permit?


Residents can buy a one-day fishing license but not a three-day salmon or 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 daily license costs $12.75 plus $6.00 for each additional day purchased at the same time, but a daily license holder can't buy a salmon or steelhead permit. Resident anglers must first buy a season fishing license for $25.75 to buy a salmon or steelhead permit for $12.75. Nonresidents, however, may buy a three-day combined license and salmon/steelhead permit for $37.50. The rules do not allow Idaho residents to buy the nonresident three-day license.
