If you live in Idaho, or even if you are just visiting you will now have to pay to paddle.

It definitely looks like Idaho boaters will be paying extra fees before they can launch on Idahoand#39;s waters to prevent the invasion of invasive mussels.

Whether you have a drift boat, touring kayak or motor boat, youand#39;re going to being paying an extra fee in the future.

The mussel sticker bill flew through the Idaho Senate Tuesday with a vote of 34 to 1. The popular bill will require that motorized boats registered in Idaho have a $10 annual sticker. Boats coming into Idaho but registered out of state would have to pay $20. The cost for nonmotorized boats would be $5 annually. Boaters caught on Idaho waterways without the sticker would be subject to a $100 fine.
