KDWPT cuts fishing license fees, youth trout permits starting Jan. 1

PRATT - Anglers will soon pay less for daily fishing licenses in Kansas, beginning Jan. 1.

On Nov. 19, the Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Commission voted to decrease the daily license fee from $8.50 to $6 for Kansas residents and from $14.50 to $10 for non-residents. Prices were lowered in hopes of attracting additional novice and casual anglers.

Also beginning Jan. 1, Kansas youth 15 and younger can purchase a new youth trout permit for $7 - half of the adult permit price - which will allow youth to keep five trout in select waters. Currently, youth can trout fish for free but only keep two trout.
