Coeur d’Alene Tribal Territory and Fishing Licenses/Permits

Certain locations within the tournament boundaries may be subject to tribal fishing license/permit requirements. It is the angler’s responsibility to know if they are going to be on tribal lands/waters, and purchase the appropriate fishing license/permit to fish those waters. The map below shows which areas would be affected. Licenses/permits are $12 per day for non-residents of the Coeur d’Alene Reservation (annual licenses/permits are also available).

KFNW will not be checking licenses/permits but expects anglers to always adhere to all federal, state, and local regulations. Evidence of failure to adhere to any regulations will result in disqualification.
