Question: At what age do I need a license to fish in Alaska?

Answer: All Alaska resident anglers ages 18 or older and nonresident anglers ages 16 or older must possess a valid sport fishing license to fish in Alaska. 

Question: Do I need anything besides a license to fish for salmon in Alaska?

Answer: Anglers must also posses a king salmon stamp to fish for king salmon. These laws apply in both fresh and marine waters.

Question: When does an Alaska fishing license expire?

Answer: All long-term fishing licenses in Alaska are good from date of purchase through December 31 each year.

Question: Are there any exemptions for needing a fishing license in Alaska?

Answer: Yes. Alaska residents ages 60+ and Alaska disabled veterans, who maintain their residency, may participate in sport fisheries WITHOUT a sport fishing license, but, they must apply for and possess an ADFG Identification Card. Link to application here: ADF&G ID Card Application.

Question: Does my child need a King Salmon stamp to fish for kings?

Answer: Holders of an ADFG Identification Card and resident anglers under 18 years of age (and nonresidents under 16 years) of age DO NOT need to purchase a king salmon stamp in order to fish for king salmon. 

Question: Does Alaska require any fish or harvest reporting?

Answer: Yes. Resident anglers younger than 18 and nonresident anglers younger than 16, as well as resident senior and disabled veterans holding ADFG Identification Cards, must obtain a FREE Sport Fishing Harvest Card (which can be found here, on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game website) in order to record their harvest of those fish. You need to carry your harvest record card with you while fishing and record your catch immediately in the field, but do not need to turn in your card at the end of the season. Please retain your harvest card until the end of the fishing season.
