Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds anglers the 2022-2023 fishing season is officially upon us.

The 2022-2023 fishing license is valid March 1, 2022, through March 31, 2023. Regulations and pricing for annual, daily and multi-day fishing licenses can be found in the 2022 Colorado Fishing Brochure. For individuals, ages 18 through 64, a $10.59 Habitat Stamp is required with the first license purchase for the year. Youth under age 16 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 1-800-244-5613, at your local CPW office or at any of our hundreds of authorized sales agents statewide. CPW does not receive general tax dollars and fishing license sales support all statewide hatchery and fish-stocking operations.

CPW stocks 90 million fish annually into waters throughout Colorado in order to ensure quality angling opportunities. From warmer waters to mountain streams, Colorado angling opportunities are world-renowned. Funding from fishing license sales may allow for additional public access, community angling grants and habitat improvements that better support our birds, fish and other small game.

Whether you enjoy lure fishing, ice fishing or fly fishing, Colorado provides 27,000 miles of streams and more than 1,300 lakes and reservoir s. Fishing in Colorado provides the possibility of catching 35 species of warm-water and cold-water fish.

Fishing is a great activity to share with family and friends, and the perfect chance to get outside and enjoy Colorado's natural resources.

CPW fishing classes, events, seminars and tournaments are posted on the Fishing News and Events web page.
