Outfitters’ Licensing Renewal


FWSR, along with many others,  received notification from the Forest Service on April 27 about renewal of outfitters permits.  We are working on a response.  We think the proposed action, to simply renew the existing permits, is not okay.  Here is a link to a map of the W&S segments of the two rivers.   You can contact us at friends@friendsofthewhitesalmon.org if you have questions or opinions.

A couple weeks ago, we posted the Scoping Letter sent by the US Forest Service regarding Outfitter Permits.

We have filed our comment letter, asking for more examination of the other Outstandingly Remarkable Values and for consideration of a system of daily limits, to be phased in slowly over the next several years. The FWSR comment letter can be read in full here:  FWSR.Response.Outfitter.Permits.Scoping.May2020-1.

Mike Simpson’s (R) weekend announcement calling for the breaching of four controversial dams on the Lower Snake River is making top-of-the-fold headlines across the Columbia River Basin."
