Support a 12-Month Fishing License (#SB187-Berryhill)
California’s annual fishing license is the costliest in the nation, and it is NOT valid for a full 12-months from the date of purchase. They expire December 31st of every year, regardless of when purchased!
California’s costly and antiquated fishing license program is in desperate need of reform.
Sales of annual license have declined over 55% since 1980. This is remarkable given that the state’s population increased over 60% during this same time period. And, while California has one of the nation’s longest coastlines, and thousands of rivers and lakes, its fishing participation rate ranks dead-last among all the states (per capita) in the country.
Join the California Sportfishing League in supporting sensible fishing license reforms introduced by Senator Tom Berryhill (R).
