We thought it might be helpful for our fellow anglers to find out what local rules and regulations they should abide by to avoid getting in trouble with the law. Lots of our website visitors have asked us time and again whether we didn’t have any posts on these regulations, so we eventually made a series that includes them all.
In the pages below, you’ll find info about what you can and can’t do when you go fishing, any restrictions regarding the species you could target depending on the time of year, and the approximate cost of a fishing license.
Needless to say, the price is subject to changes as we included that bit of information at the time we wrote the articles.
You will also find out whether you need a fishing license if you are under the age of 16 (in most states, you don’t, but be sure to check with the US Department of Fish and Wildlife website of the state you reside in) or over the age of 65.
You will also learn whether there are any limits as to the number of fish you can get home with (in many places, fishing is allowed as long as you practice catch and release). Without further ado, here is the list.
