Discounted fishing licenses offered for July 4 holiday

in Community

MADISON – Wisconsin anglers who have never purchased a fishing license or haven’t purchased one in 10 years can get a one-day resident fishing license for July 4 for just $5.

The regular annual fishing license for residents is $20.

Lawmakers created the discounted license and both residents and non-residents can take advantage of this offer, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Residents’ discounted license is $5 and non-residents’ is $25.75 for the annual licenses.

A one-day fishing license costs $8 for residents and $10 for nonresidents. The purchase price of that one-day license can be credited toward purchase of an annual license.

People can buy fishing licenses online through the Go Wild website or in person at any authorized license agent.

Wisconsin residents and nonresidents 16 years old or older need a fishing license to fish in any waters of the state. Residents born before Jan. 1, 1927, do not need a license. Resident members of the U.S. Armed Forces on active duty may obtain a free fishing license when on furlough or leave by presenting their military ID and leave papers at any license agent.
