New Heller Bar parking charges

I just heard from the Washington Fish and Wildlife that they passed a new law requiring the purchase of an access pass for certain lands, parks, water access sites etc... This means that this pass, which is called the Discover Pass, is required for all vehicles parking at Heller Bar on the Snake River. Heller bar is the take out for the Lower Salmon, Hell's Canyon and the Grande Ronde.

The pass is $30 annually or $10 for one day. You get a discount if you have a WA hunting or fishing license. I think it goes into effect for Heller Bar next week. Just a heads up if anyone is planning a trip and leaving vehicles at the take out.

Thanks a ton for the info, were hoping to put together either a Lower Salmon or Hells Canyon later in the year, I will pass on the word.

Thanks for the heads-up.
I wonder if the shuttle services in White Bird, ID and Oxbow, OR will provide these for Heller Bar takeouts.
Sucks if you choose to take out a day later than planned - either multi-day pass for $30 or $99 fine if non-compliant.
