Option #1: Purchase your license from us the morning of your trip.

If time won’t allow for you to buy a license before your trip, we can sell you a license when you arrive for your fishing trip. We can also provide catch record cards for Salmon & Steelhead to go along with those licenses, for those under 15 years old, and for licenses that were purchased and printed online. If you are crabbing on one of our trips you must purchase a shellfish license from a full-service dealer (see stores below).

License fees, day of: Resident or Non-Resident one-day fishing license – $10.00, catch record cards are free.

Option #2: Purchase your license online.

Our license year goes from April 1st – March 31st. If you are fishing with us between January 1st and March 31st and need to buy a license, you need to select the prior year to get the correct license.

License fees: Resident one day fresh/salt $7.50, Non-Resident $14.50, catch record cards are free.

You will be able to print a temporary license from home after you purchase online. You will NOT be able to receive a catch record online! The regular copy of your license and catch record card will be mailed to you within two weeks. In this case, I can provide you with a catch record card on the morning of your trip.

Please make sure you ask for a Salmon, Steelhead, halibut, and Sturgeon catch record card, and a Columbia River Enhancement Stamp if you’re fishing with us on the Columbia River or its tributaries.
