Despite being a desert state, there's a lot of fishing opportunities in Arizona.

All anglers over 10 years of age are required to have a fishing license. Blind residents are exempt from this and do not need a fishing license so long as they have proof of residence.

All annual fishing licenses in Arizona are valid for 365 days from the date you purchase the license. Anglers are responsible for knowing when their licenses need to be renewed.

Arizona also offers discounts for disabled veterans who live in the state. To qualify you must have lived in-state, with proof of address, and as your primary residence, for at least one year before applying for the license.

Arizona’s pricing schedule encouraged anglers to buy an annual license anytime you’re planning to fish for more than 2 days out of the year. That’s to your advantage, although you can choose to purchase daily licenses if you want to give additional support to Arizona’s Fish and Wildlife fund.

All short-term licenses are calculated on a per-day basis, there are no specific rates for 3 days or 7-day trips.

In order to qualify for Arizona residence, for the purposes of fishing licenses, you need to have lived in Arizona, as your primary place of residence, for at least 6 months prior to the purchase of your license.
