You know that piece of paper or sticker you've been carrying around since last spring? Well it's just about to be no good anymore.
2013 fishing licenses expire on Friday, Feb. 28, and 2014 Fishing licenses are now available from DNR license agents, online at and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2014 fishing licenses become effective Saturday, March 1. Personally I prefer to buy my fishing license online so I can print out several different copies. That way I'm always assured of having my license with me.
Customers who purchase online via smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers.
