Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reminding anglers now is the time to buy a fishing license. Licenses can be purchased at fishing supply outlets, Parks and Wildlife offices, online and by phone. The 2012 license season begins April 1 and runs through March 31, 2013.
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. Parks and Wildlife offers five-day and one-day fishing licenses for visiting anglers or those who are going on a shorter outing.
Colorado also asks sportsmen who purchase a fishing or hunting license to also buy a $10 Colorado Wildlife Habitat Stamp each year. Since state lawmakers approved the stamp in 2005, funds from the program have helped conserve more than 124,000 acres of important wildlife habitat and opened more than 23 miles of new fishing access for anglers.
