Are YOU Legal?
It is finally spring and that means it is now time to get your fishing license renewed. April 1st is the date when the
season begins for your Colorado Annual Fishing License.
A Colorado fishing license is required for anyone 16 and older who fishes in Colorado. An annual fishing license is $26 for Colorado residents and $56 for nonresidents. Seniors 64 and older who are residents of Colorado can purchase an annual fishing license for $1.
This year Senate Bill 235 of the Colorado Revised Statutes authorizes changes to the Habitat Stamp beginning April 1, 2011. Changes include:
- The Habitat Stamp will cost $10
- Individuals will only have to purchase one Habitat Stamp for the entire season (April 1, 2011 – March 31, 2012)
- The lifetime Habitat Stamp will cost $300
What this means is your Annual License will have a total cost of $36. For more information the Colorado Division of Wildlife has a new on-line Colorado Fishing Brochure 2011.
Come by the shop and we will happy to renew your license.
