The river otter harvest quota for Idaho’s Clearwater Region was reached on Monday, Feb 14. The otter trapping 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 close at 11:59pm on Friday, Feb 18.

Any otter trapped in the Clearwater Region after 11:59pm must be surrendered to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game office, 3316 16th St. Lewiston, ID for a $10.00 reward.
