Idaho River Otter Season to Close December 15
The river otter trapping quota for Idaho's Clearwater Region was reached at 2 p.m., Monday, December 12.
The otter season for the entire region closes 72 hours after the harvest quota has been met. As a result, the otter season for the entire region will officially close at 2 p.m. Thursday, December 15.
Trappers will be allowed to keep otters trapped within this 72-hour period provided their personal quota of two has not been reached. Any otter trapped in the Clearwater Region after 2 p.m. December 15 must be surrendered to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game for a $10 reward.
