Nez Perce License Valid Only on Reservation

Steelhead anglers are reminded that the Nez Perce tribal steelhead license is not valid outside the reservation boundary on the Clearwater River or on the Salmon and Snake rivers.

However, an Idaho fishing license with a steelhead permit is valid on all three rivers. Steelhead anglers who possess a valid Nez Perce Tribal steelhead fishing license may fish the Clearwater River only within the reservation, from its western boundary near the mouth of Hatwai Creek to the upstream boundary of the steelhead fishery at the mouth of Clear Creek, above Kooskia.

The Clearwater River upstream of the Memorial Bridge, including all waters covered by a tribal license, opens for consumptive fishing on adipose-clipped steelhead on October 15.

Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Nez Perce Tribe have mutually agreed to honor either the tribal steelhead fishing license or an Idaho fishing license with steelhead permit on the Clearwater River within reservation boundaries.

Fish and Game conservation officers and Nez Perce Tribal Fisheries enforcement officers who check steelhead anglers on the Clearwater within the reservation boundaries will accept either the tribal license or an Idaho license with steelhead permit.
