Colorado Fishing Licenses Available for 2018 – Valid April 1
Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds anglers that it's time to get ready for another fishing season. Coloradans and non-resident visitors can purchase a 2018 annual fishing license now either online, at your local CPW office or at any of our hundreds of authorized sales agents statewide.
An annual license is valid beginning April 1 through March 31, 2019. CPW provides a range of options for anglers including both the annual fishing license and one-day fishing licenses.
CPW stocks 90 million fish annually into waters throughout Colorado. CPW does not receive general tax dollars. Fishing license fees support all statewide hatchery and fish-stocking operations.
Up-to-date regulations and pricing for annual, daily and multi-day licenses can be found in the 2018 Colorado Fishing Brochure. For individuals ages 18 through 64, a $10 Habitat Stamp is required with the first license purchase for the year. Youth under age 16 can fish for free.
