In addition to the regular private float trip permits, Fish, Wildlife & Parks issues one Super Permit each year through a separate lottery. The recipient of the Super Permit is allowed to launch on any date of their choosing for the year.

Floaters can purchase as many $5 Super Permit chances as they choose, but only one Super Permit is awarded.

The opportunity to purchase chances for the Smith River Super Permit ends April 1, and the winner will be announced April 4.

Chances may be purchased online through the FWP Online Licenses Service.
