Colorado fishing licenses now available, valid April 1

Posted

Fishing licenses for 2018 are for sale now online or in person at local Colorado Parks and Wildlife offices and hundreds of authorized sales agents statewide.

Annual fishing licenses, valid from April 1 to March 31, 2019, multi-day licenses and one-day licenses can be purchased by Coloradans and nonresident visitors. Educational opportunities for those new to angling also are available.

“Colorado provides outstanding fishing across the state with an amazing diversity of species ranging from cutthroat trout and kokanee to walleye and bluegill,” Doug Krieger, Colorado Parks and Wildlife aquatic section manager, said in a news release. “Fishing is a great activity to share with family and friends, and the perfect chance to get outside and enjoy Colorado's natural resources.”

The agency also offers a free mobile fishing app to help anglers planning a trip. Available on the AppStore or Google Play, CWP Fishing helps anglers discover more than 1,300 fishing sites in Colorado.

Features on the app provide information on the type of fishing at each location stream gauges, species availability, accessibility, family-friendliness, weather and more. Educational features such as up-to-date fishing regulations, fish identification guides and news alerts for breaking information anglers need to be aware of on the water are also available.

Colorado State Parks stocks 90 million fish annually into waters throughout Colorado to ensure quality angling opportunities. The agency does not receive general tax dollars and fishing license fees support all statewide hatchery and fish-stocking operations.

Up-to-date regulations and pricing for all licenses can be found at http://cpw.state.co.us/.

For those ages 18-64, a Habitat Stamp is required with the first license purchase for the year. Those younger than 16 can fish for free, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife provides opportunities throughout the season to learn to fish. Check the calendar on the agency's website for upcoming clinics.
