I shudder to think that some of you would even consider the intrusion of big bother into one more area of our life's. Look how they have managed the forest service lands and the BLM and what they will let us use and not use on our lands.

NO NO NO I do not want one more intrusion of big brother telling us what we can and can not do.

Plus this would be another 10,000 government works we would have to support plus additional taxation that the feds would require. To allow us to fish.

In Texas a license is not required to fish in state parks, fresh or saltwater. If a state park borders the Gulf of Mexico like Goose Island State Park no license is required as long as you stand in the boundary of the state park.
For resident seniors in Texas the fresh and salt water license is $21.
For Texas Disabled Vets 50 percent or more (it was lowered this year) the Super Combo Hunting and Fishing is free.

the proposal has been sent to Congress several time as a Senior license. It can't find the needed congessional sponsors.
Not surprising, since Congress doesn't even have the authority to issue fishing licenses. It's one of the many prerogatives reserved to the states by our Constitution. And as Mike & Cha explained, it's a local issue, with local funding and local management concerns.

I have read the Constitution many times and I can guarantee you that it never says one word about fishing licenses.

I think a National License would be nice, but almost impossible to do. When I use to visit my dad in Washington State, we would often go fishing and I would buy a three day, out of state, license. He lived in the middle of Washington and the handbook regulating fishing, just in his and surrounding Counties, was huge. You had to know that while fishing (as an example, I'm making up the numbers) on the Snake river between bridge 602 and Hwy 22, you could only keep trout with a cut dorsal fin, 18" to 24" in length.

For a National License to work, you would have to put every State and County rule online and every fisherman would have to study it before picking up a pole. Just not feasible.

The idea of a "National-Fishing-License" sounds good at face value, but then one must wonder if the fees would be divided equally, or distributed by population.

Many of the fees collected are used to support conservation efforts in each state. Here in Missouri, all license sales are used to pay conservation agents. When one reaches 65, a resident is issued a lifetime hunting and fishing permit (still have to buy trout and duck stamp)

My RV trips are almost all fishing related. If I'm traveling out of state, I usually get all required permits on-line. That way when I arrive I can get my hood wet without delay.

But they do have authority over national parks. Last year I purchased one license in Yellowstone which of course spans three states, ID, MT & WY. Required Permits and Fees for Fishing - Yellowstone National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

If the proposal to Congress was for an annual fishing license valid in all national parks, then that would make sense to me. It would also be nice if proposal also included a lifetime license for seniors.

I fish and have no problem purchasing a fishing licence in each state I plan to fish and non resident licences can get expensive. The money goes to maintain and improve the fish stocks. We as sportsmen have always supported this endeavor not just for ourselves but for future generations. The cost of a licence is a small price to pay for the enjoyment of a peaceful day on lake or stream engaged in an activity I love.
I'm just glad I don't golf. Now there's some real money there.

Good comment. If you feel you can't afford a fishing license then just cut back on other activities to pay for it occasionally - boondock instead of a RV park, a few dinners out, some movies and other 'vices'.
