Buy a Minnesota fishing license and discover what more than a million licensed anglers already know -- fishing is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors.
Though you can't see it on a fish finder, at the bottom of Minnesota's great fishing is a system of DNR research, management and effective law enforcement. This system has made Minnesota one of the nation's top five angling destinations. It is the foundation that generates $3 billion in annual Minnesota retail sales and supports 43,000 Minnesota fishing-related jobs. DNR appreciates all the efforts of organized groups and individual hunters, anglers, trappers and others who supported new license prices, which were approved by bi-partisan support in the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Mark Dayton. Visit our Bottom Line section to learn more about how this increase will help your favorite fishing area.
