If you own an RV or camp, odds are you likely fish too. And that’s great because I love to fish as well!
Fishing licenses are generally very cheap and easy to get. Sometimes you can even get them for FREE. The best place to find out how much a license costs is on the internet or potentially even at your local tackle shop. You can also check with your state’s wildlife agency for more information about obtaining a fishing license in your area.
Most states have different types of licenses depending on how long you plan on fishing, what type of fish you want to catch, and where you will be fishing. For example, some states require a special trout stamp if you want to fish for trout in certain areas.
I recommend getting the longest-term license available, so you don’t have to worry about renewing it yearly. A one-year license is usually sufficient for most people.
A fishing license is a big responsibility, not just a piece of paper. It shows that you’re taking responsibility for your actions and that you’re willing to follow the rules and regulations. It also shows that you’re respecting the fish and their habitat.
If indeed you’re not able to get a license for free, all the money you spend on it goes back into conserving your State’s fish and habitat.
