Default fishing licenses

What's the yearly fee where you are?
Ours doubled up this year and I'd like to see how it compares to other states, provinces, or whatever local government it is that gouges you for the honor.

Here in Connecticut the inland license went from $20 to $40 plus we have a saltwater license of $10 for the first time.
Added up, that's 50 bucks to fish the same water as you could last year for $20


I'll ante-up of course, but that's a big jump. If I'm not mistaken,I think that I could fish as a non-resident in other states for that

you are still way cheaper than Va. Salt/freshwater res combo is 30.00, Trout is 18.00 and National forest is 4.00. Other fees apply in certain areas

How true, and when you factor in that MD annual out-of-state license base fees start at the fees your home state charges, and they then add the out-of-state charges on top of that, it hurts more than once. I get annual licenses in my home state of VA and out-of-state in PA, MD, and DC. VA is the price setter in that group.

$24 for a Wyoming resident fishing license plus I always buy a Colorado non-resident license which is $56 (they also charge a fee for the state wildlife areas, I think it is $5, but might be wrong), but it is still a good value in my opinion. The Colorado resident fishing license is $26.

Here in California, I spent $59.00 for the privilege of participating in this sport. That includes the ocean enhancement that allows me to fish the surf, etc. It also includes a second-rod stamp, so I can soak some bait now and then while fishing with another rod.

It's expensive, but still worth it. The state has cut DF&G to the bone, so they have to get their money somewhere. I'd rather pay for the license than for the fine.

Yep I am paying $18 for general fishing license, $18 for trout stamp, $4 for national forest here in VA plus a bunch to the Cherokee Reserve fishing there each month. I used to fish TN too but can't see pitching out another $75ish to fish there when there are so many good waters around here to fish.

Default Re: fishing licenses

Utah is $26. Then to fish Idaho, that's $100 for non-residents. Wyoming is $100 too for non- resident. And Larry pays $24.(just ain't fair) That adds up to some big bucks out here to fish the west. The one nice thing about Utah licenses, they are 365 day licenses. Not Jan 1- Dec 31. I wish Idaho would pull their heads out and do the same thing.

Mojo: $100, Och! Well there isn't any trout in Wyoming anyway, so no need to spend the money on a license! LOL!
