Wisconsin's one day fishing license

Wisconsin now offers a one-day fishing license to anglers who want to try fishing. Choose your water. Choose your friends. Choose your day. It's that simple.

The cost of the one-day license is:

  • $8 for residents
  • $15 for nonresidents

Give It A Try

Buy it, try it and upgrade if you want to fish more. After you purchase your one-day license, you can buy an annual fishing license for a reduced rate at any time during the same license year. The reduced rate annual licenses are $12.75 for a resident and $40.75 for a nonresident. 

A resident annual license is $20, a nonresident is $55, and a one-day license is an excellent entry-level license that lets you do everything but fish for premium species like trout and salmon (an additional stamp is needed to fish for these species).

Pick Your Day

Pick the day you want to fish! The license is good until midnight of that day.

Easy To Buy

There are three convenient ways to buy the license:
