2008 California fishing licenses

Don Quilici

Anglers who fish in the State of California are reminded that anyone fishing in the “Golden State” is required to have the new 2008 fishing license, effective Jan. 1.

The 2008 Non-Resident, annual California fishing license is $104.20 per person at all regular license outlets.

A one-day fishing license (Resident or Non-Resident) will cost $12.60.

A two-day fishing license (Non-Resident) will cost $19.45.

A ten-day fishing license (Resident or Non-Resident) will cost $38.85.

A second rod stamp is $12.10. That stamp allows an angler to fish with two rods or lines in inland waters, except for waters in which only artificial lures or barbless hooks may be used.
