Alaska Fishing License Fees Increase in 2017
Fees for many of Alaska’s sport fishing, hunting, and trapping licenses and tags will increase beginning January 1, 2017. However, licenses for 2017 are available online, at 2016 rates, through the end of the year here.
The new fees mark the first time in 24 years that hunting license and tag fees have increased, while sport fishing licenses last increased about 10 years ago.
Here’s what impacts our typical guest: non-resident 7 day sport fishing license increases from $55 to $70, non-resident 7 day king salmon stamp increases from $30 to $45.
For a complete list of the new fees, visit their website here. And remember, revenue generated from your purchase of a license or stamp directly funds fisheries management and conservation across Alaska.
