Hunting & Fishing Licenses in Alaska

Fishing Licenses and Regulations

A sport fishing license is required for each calendar year and must be on your person. When you purchase your license be aware that there are different licenses for resident, nonresident, active duty military, and disabled.

Purchase your license online from the Alaska Department of Fish & Game Online Store or from most grocery and sporting goods stores throughout the state of Alaska.

Make sure to obtain and read the most recent edition of the Alaska Sport Fishing Regulations pertaining to the area you wish to fish and inquire additionally about frequent emergency orders that may be in effect that supersede the printed fishing regulations.
