ARIZONA FISHING LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Fishing regulations are established to conserve and protect state fisheries. It is important to check the current fishing regulations before planning a fishing trip, as rules can change based on fish populations and seasons.
IT’S NOT A FEE, IT’S A CONTRIBUTION
During certain fishing instances when you catch fish that do not comply with state regulations or when fishing purely for sport, it is crucial to educate yourself on catch and release best practices. Understanding these tools and tips can enhance the survival rate of released fish, allowing them to breed or be caught by other anglers on another day.
ARIZONA FISHING LICENSE INFORMATION
The easiest way to obtain an Arizona fishing license is by purchasing one online from the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
You can also purchase a fishing license in person from designated fishing license dealers such as outdoor sporting goods stores or tackle shops.
A fishing license is not required for children under the age of 10, and most licenses are valid for 365 days from the date of purchase.
