If You Are Boating In Idaho – Ya Gotta Get A Sticker


2009
05.19

The new law is currently in affect, however I’m not sure exactly when they are going to begin enforcement.

The new law is supposed to protect Idaho waters from the invasive ‘Zebra Mussel‘. If you live in-state or are a visiting paddler you have to get a sticker to paddle in Idaho. The only non-motorized boats exempt from this law are inflatables 10 feet and under. (So I guess a 9 foot inflatable will not transport mussels, but a 5 foot playboat will…?).

I, however, am not going to stick it on my boats – stickers tend to come off. I laminated mine and zip-tied them inside my cockpit.

Anyway – you can order them online at http://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/stickerpurchase.aspx for $5 each.

Riggins, Idaho has also completed a feasibility study and I am hosting, as Co-Chair with the Mayor, Bob Crump, a state wide meeting this Thursday.
