Kids Can Fish for FREE in 2023!

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

We want to make it as easy as possible for kids to enjoy Nevada’s fishing opportunities! Thanks to generous donations made by our conservation partners and members of the public to the Nevada Youth License Fund, we are able to offer youth combination(fishing/hunting) licenses to anyone 12-17 years old at no cost to them, while supplies last! Anyone younger than 12 years old can fish legally without a license.
