Idaho Fishing License

Find here some information on purchasing an Idaho Fishing License

Find here information and links you will need for purchasing your Idaho Fishing License with CDA Adventures. Anyone 14 ages or older will need a license BEFORE heading out on your trip. It is easy to do it electronically and you can print a copy to have on hand at your hotel or from home before leaving! Last case scenario, have it on your phone to show a ranger if needed. Many of our trips meet you at our river site or we schedule a pick up. The fishing shop doesn’t have the ability to process fishing licenses nor do we want to spend precious time doing that pre-trip.

If you want to find a physical location in Coeur d’Alene find an approved vendor here.

To fish in Idaho any person 14 years of age or older must have a valid Idaho Fishing License.

Anglers younger than 14 do not need a license, but there is a small difference between resident and nonresident youth.

  • A resident child under 14 has their own separate fishing limit. 
  • A nonresident child under 14 must be with someone who has a valid fishing license and their fish are in included in the license holders fishing limit. However, a nonresident child may purchase their own license and have their own limit.

Special fishing permits are need for some activities for both residents and nonresidents:

  • Fishing for salmon and steelhead
  • Fishing with two poles.
