Hey Fishing Enthusiast,

Are you ready to cast a line and enjoy some world-class fishing in the USA? Before you head out on the water, it's important to make sure you have the proper fishing license for your location and type of fishing.

Getting a fishing license is quick and easy in most states. You can typically purchase one online through your state’s fish and wildlife agency website, in person at a licensed agent like a tackle shop or sporting goods store, or by phone.

Having a valid fishing license is not only required by law for anglers age 16 and older in all 50 states, but your license fees also go directly to supporting critical conservation efforts. This includes fish stocking, habitat protection, fishing access, research and more.

Most states offer a variety of license options to fit your needs:

  • Annual licenses valid for 365 days from purchase
  • Short-term licenses for 1-day, 7-days or other durations for visitors
  • Saltwater, freshwater, or all-water licenses depending on where you’ll be fishing
  • Discounted or free licenses for youth, seniors, disabled persons and military members

So before you head out on your next fishing trip, make sure you’re covered with the appropriate state fishing license. Tight lines out there!

For the latest information on fishing license requirements and fees in your state, check with your state’s fish and wildlife agency.
