Wisconsin's one day fishing license

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

The cost of the one-day license is:

  • $8 for residents
  • $10 for non-residents

Give It A Try

Buy it, try it and upgrade if you want to fish some more. After you purchase your one-day license, you can purchase 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 $50; so the one-day license is a good entry-level license that lets you do everything but fish for the 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
