Getting your fishing license in Montana can be an exciting experience when done for the first time, or a family tradition that happens every year. To fish in Montana, most anglers need two licenses: a Conservation License and a Fishing License. You can even apply online.

According to When you purchase a Montana fishing license, you’re helping to protect, preserve and enhance the sport of fishing for today and for generations to come. License fees help pay for fishery and hatchery management, habitat development and protection, endangered species programs, fishing and conservation education, lake maps and other publications, and many other valuable programs.

WHAT KIND OF LICENSE DO I NEED? This Montana Fish, Wildlife & Park document spells out very clearly what kind of license you need. It also explains penalties for violations, how to release fish, contact numbers for tribal reservation fishing, and sport fish consumption guidelines.

Generally, Montana fishing regulations take effect March through February of the following year. HOWEVER, it is important to check the GENERAL FISHING SEASON dates depending on which district you wish to fish.

The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks website is very extensive and will give you answers or direct you to answers regarding everything outdoors, that is regulated by the State of Montana. Enjoy!
