Ask a Conservation Officer: Time for a new fishing license
Q: When does my fishing license expire?
A: Minnesota angling licenses and trout stamps all expired on Feb. 28. Before you go fishing, make sure to purchase a 2018 fishing license, and trout stamp if that applies to the waters you fish.
Licenses are available through the DNR License Center in St. Paul, at ELS license vendors statewide, or online at dnr.state.mn.us. If you are a holder of a lifetime license, now is the time to go to an ELS vendor to get your annual free printout.
