Idaho Fishing Licenses


To fish in Idaho any person 14 years of age or older must have a valid fishing license.

Anglers younger than 14 do not need a license, but there is a small difference between resident and nonresident youth.

  • A resident child under 14 has their own separate fishing limit.
  • A nonresident child under 14 must be with someone who has a valid fishing license and their fish are included in the license holders fishing limit. However, a nonresident child may purchase their own license and have their own limit.

Special fishing permits are needed for some activities for both residents and non-residents:

  • Fishing for salmon and steelhead
  • Fishing with two poles.
