Fishing [When is a license required for a junior under 12?]


do you need a fishing license to go fishing without an adult under the age of 12


Fishing licenses are required for anglers 14 and older.

Resident children can fish under age 14 without an accompanying adult and without having a fishing license. 

Nonresident children must fish with an adult with an Idaho fishing license.  Their catch becomes part of the adult's catch limit.
