Idaho offers a surprising amount of fishing variety and opportunity and is friendly to anglers of all ages.

In Idaho, anglers 14 years of age or older, are required to have their own fishing license.

Non-resident fishers under 14 years of age can purchase their own fishing license. If a non-resident child does not have their own license, they are required to be with another angler who does have a license, and the count under the same bag limit for that fisher.

Resident fishers younger than 14 years of age have their own fishing bag limit whether they have their own fishing license or not.

All fishers in Idaho are required to purchase additional stamps for their license if they want to fish with two rods. They are also required to purchase the additional privilege of fishing for salmon and steelhead species.

People with disabilities, veterans, disabled veterans and seniors may all be eligible for discounts in Idaho, depending on the type of license you're looking to purchase.

When purchasing fishing by the day, the rates below are accurate for the first day of fishing. Additional days may be discounted.

There are also options for active-duty military service members, which can be found here.
