The 2024-2025 fishing license is valid from March 1, 2024, through March 31, 2025. Regulations and pricing for annual, daily, and multiday fishing licenses are in the 2024 Colorado Fishing Brochure.

For individuals ages 18 through 64, an $11.50 Habitat Stamp is required with the first license purchase for the year. Youths under 16-years-of-age can fish with one rod for free, and CPW provides opportunities throughout the season to learn how to fish.

Coloradans and nonresident visitors can purchase fishing licenses online, by phone at (800) 244-5613, at a local CPW office, or from authorized retail sales agents statewide. CPW does not receive general tax dollars, and fishing license sales support all statewide hatchery and fish-stocking operations. CPW fishing classes, events, seminars, and tournaments are posted on the Fishing News and Events webpage.

When planning your next fishing trip, download the My CPW app. My CPW is the official mobile app for CPW’s license and pass purchasing website CPWshop.com and includes access to a list of active products on your CPWShop.com account, CPWShop mobile purchases, links to fishing reports, PDFs of the most recent brochures, and more (available to residents and nonresidents).
