Thanks, the SF Clearwater is on my list to check out on this years trip.

From everything I see online, yes, it seems that Selway starts at Paradise. When in fact it starts some 50 miles upriver.

I am assuming that there is some sort of written document that outlines and delineates the specifics of the permit system. I have tried searching for it online, but no luck.

Here are the regs:

They don't get very specific on which part of the river you need the permit for, but they do say you have to be off the river May 14th if you don't have a permit.

That's good they got it in writing now, a lot of people still don't know about it. The site talks about 47 miles, put in as Paradise and takeout as Racecreek. They even show a map with "trip starts here" and "trip ends here" at those two locations. I bet you got someone on the phone that didn't know much about the area, or river, or actual permit process. As the process moved to, I bet the office knowledge regarding the permit process is declining.

See, that is my worry. That someone was just giving their best guess as to the actual regulations. Are they allowed to enforce whatever they want?
