Wisconsin may be the land of cheese, but that doesn’t mean that is isn’t also the land of fish.

With sturgeon, inland salmon, trout, and many other more common varieties of fish, Wisconsin is a fisherman's paradise.

There are special rates for anglers who are active military servicemen, seniors, and a few other qualifying groups. To see if you qualify for those discounts, look at Wisconsin's state website. A wide variety of licenses helps to make sure that fishing is highly accessible in the state.

However, that also means that protected fish populations, like trout, salmon, and sturgeon have specific regulations and requirements that all anglers going for those fish are obligated to know.

The state also makes a different schedule of licenses available to residents and non-residents. Non-residents have a wider variety of licenses in order to keep vacations and fishing trips more affordable.

All anglers over the age of 16 are required to have and carry their fishing license.
