Tulee v. Washington
Argued March 3, 1942
Decided March 30, 1942
315 U.S. 681
Under the provision of the treaty of May 29, 1855, with the Yakima Indian, reserving to the members of the tribe the light to take fish "at all usual and accustomed places, in common with the citizens" of Washington Territory, the State of Washington has the power to impose on the Indians equally with others such restrictions of a purely regulatory nature concerning the time and manner of fishing outside the reservation as are necessary for the conservation of fish, but it cannot require them to pay license fees that are both regulatory and revenue-producing. P. 315 U. S. 685.
7 Wash.2d 124, 109 P.2d 280, reversed.
