I understand the need for each state to bring in revenue, but if your drivers license works in other states, it would be nice if your fishing license did as well.

There's actually a petition online from some people that think there should be a "Nationwide Fishing License"- though theirs is to be limited to "catch-and-release" fishing only.

One has to wonder why anyone would think that individual States would consent to giving up the revenue required to support their fisheries...or why anyone would think that they should!

We have no problem paying for out-of-State licenses when we're in other folks' States, and expect the same reciprocity from visitors to our own.

I agree with you on this but when 3 day (and other short term) out of state licenses run as much and often much more than annual for in state, it seems a little lopsided. I know there are places that are heavily fished by outsiders and to some extent it makes sense but when your hanging around a state for a month or so spending money it would seem like the price of a license should slide toward the local price not keep going up. Again - I have lots of research to do but my limited experience indicates we travelers are barbed to the point of crossed eyes for a little bank time. YMMV.

My philosophy is that permanent residents support State services in many ways besides just through licensing etc., and think it fair for visitors like myself to make up for that, at least in a small way, by paying more than a permanent resident for a license.

It should be noted that National Parks allow fishing without any license at all, regardless of the State they're in...certainly that's appropriate since ALL Americans chip in to support that resource.

What purpose does the license serve other to inform a law enforcement person that you have one..

Driver's license, you take a test to see if you are competent in the rules and regulations.

Fishing license, hunting license, etc., just money making schemes. It should not be necessary to have a license to catch your own food. I do have both.

"Catch your own food"?

You'll soon starve to death if you try to live on the fish you catch unless someone is managing/restocking that fishery, Wayne!

Now, I guess we could try doing that at no cost...volunteers, anyone? Who has a trout rearing farm, for example, and is willing to chip in some free fish?

Anyone? Hello?

No fishing license is required to fish in Texas State parks. This includes parks that border the gulf. Bag and length limits do apply.

Found a site -

http://fishingpapers.com/

They have state by state online sales and info on fishing and hunting "papers" / licenses. Have not used it - just digging in. Here are prices for a few states I looked at.

New Mexico Annual Fishing
$25 Resident $56 Nonresident

Arizona
Resident $53 Non-resident $63
Super Conservation Fishing
Type: Freshwater Season: Jan 1 - Dec 31
Includes General Fishing, Urban Fishing and Trout Stamp

Colorado
Resident $26 Non-resident $56
Annual freshwater
Type: Freshwater Season: Apr 1 - Mar

Some states have shorter period license fees but the annual seems most cost effective. Annie likes to fish too so were looking at > $100 per state/year. And in some states there are extra stamps / species / waterway etc fees. Could get pricy quick but hey - I'd Rather Be Fishing.

No problemo. Just looked at KY - $20 annual for Residents - no annual for nonresidents - $40 for nonresident 15 day and $30 for a 7 day. Should have know it would be high - have ya bought a bottle of Makers Mark lately? 2x local annual for 15 says - this is what I referred to before as being barbed. Just seems a bit excessive to me. Won't be doing too much fishing there - no matter how well they're butting.

The steelhead are bitin' on the Bogie, as we say here on the Olympic Peninsula.

My husband and I were over in Forks this fine sunny day and when hubby saw all the guys down along the Bogachiel he was kicking himself that he didn't bring along his fishing gear!

I don't doubt that one bit. My dearly departed aunt always sent me fresh seafood from Key City in PT and some great cheeses from MT Townsend Creamery. Sure gonna miss that gal.

I suggest you adopt the "don't leave home without it philosophy.".

Anyone had a tight line lately? Here in the "south" Crappie will be moving into the shallows in the next month or so.
