What you need to buy a license
- Current and valid photo ID
- For residents, proof of residency
- Habitat Stamp
- A Social Security Number is required for new customers ages 16 and older (age 12 for a second-rod stamp)
Licenses are nontransferable. False statements made while buying a license render it void. Lost or destroyed licenses can be replaced by filling out an affidavit and paying a fee.
Colorado waters are open to taking fish, amphibians and crustaceans day and night, year round, except if otherwise stated in the Colorado Parks & Wildlife 2017 Colorado Fishing Brochure.
