There are a number of Nevada fishing licenses available for state residents and non-residents, such as junior and senior licenses. Purchase the right license type for you, then read through the NV fishing rules or regulations before your trip. In order to keep certain species, like trout, you may also need a special stamp or privilege, so be sure to read the fishing license and permit requirements carefully.
Wondering how many inches a striped bass needs to be in order for you to keep it or you want to know how many bluegill you can take? You will need to check the current Nevada fishing regulations. Always check the regulations before a trip so that you are aware of any special laws that may apply to certain regions of the state. If you catch a fish that is not within the rules, practice catch and release to increase the chances that the fish will survive.
Your fishing license purchase helps to protect and preserve the sport of fishing for years to come. The fees collected from Nevada fishing licenses go toward fishery management, habitat development, endangered species programs, and conservation education.
Nevada has its own set of fishing laws and regulations that need to be followed in order to protect their fish populations
