Want to add variety and extra enjoyment to your hunting trip this year? Buy a fishing license and experience great fishing fun at Arizona’s lakes and streams.
Despite this year’s dry winter, last year’s heavy precipitation filled many of the state’s lakes and reservoirs and set the stage for excellent fish reproduction and growth. The fishing outlook is outstanding.
If you already have your hunting license, add to your outdoor enjoyment by purchasing a fishing license and trout stamp. Residents pay $18 for the license and $10.50 for the trout stamp, and they can be used every day the rest of this year. If you haven’t yet purchased your hunting license, consider getting a combination hunting and fishing license. The cost for residents is $44.00 for residents and includes the cost of the trout stamp.
For nonresidents, a fishing license costs $51.50 and the trout stamp $49.50. A nonresident combination license is $177.50. For youths through their 20th birthday, a combination license is only $25.50, resident or nonresident.
Residents can also take advantage of the family license, which saves money compared to the cost of purchasing each license individually. The cost of the family license is $28.50 for the first parent, $22.80 for the second parent, and only $2 for each dependent child age 14 through 17. It includes the trout stamp.
Combo licenses and fishing licenses can be purchased at license dealers statewide, at Game and Fish Department offices, online at azgfd.gov. Family licenses can only be purchased at department offices or through azgfd.gov.
