Alaska is one of the most beautiful states in the country, with plenty of fishing opportunities all across the state. There’s a wide variety of fishing types, in Alaska, so it’s important to make sure you have the appropriate license of the fishing you’re doing.

Residents in Alaska are required to have a fishing license if you’re 18 or older. Non-residents are required to purchase a fishing license if you’re 16 or older.  

Alaska only provides annual sport fishing licenses for residents, but there are also subsistence fishing licenses for non-commercial and traditional use fishermen.

Depending on what you're fishing and where you may also need additional permits for your fishing location. Taking King Salmon requires an additional stamp, and shellfish harvesting requires a permit.

You can also buy fishing licenses in combination with hunting and trapping licenses in Alaska. If you're looking for more than one type of license, a combination license will usually be more affordable.

More detailed information can be found on the Alaska state fishing website, but you will have to provide some personal information in order to shop licenses.
