Fishing License and Info 

You’ll need a license! Get one here before you go: Fishing License

To legally fish in Montana you must hold a valid fishing license.

You need to first purchase the $10 conservation license followed by your fishing license. Non Resident Licenses are sold in 2 day blocks for $25, 10 day blocks for $56 or $86 for the season. So if you are fishing for one or two days the cost is $35 for both conservation and fishing license, $60 for 4 days (2 sets of 2 day licenses plus conservation), $66 for 10 days and $96 total for a season.

Non Resident children age 1-11 are not required to hold a license when fishing with a licensed adult. Montana Residents can expect to pay $29 for a season fishing license ($8 for the conservation license plus $21 for the season fishing license).
