Connecticut fishing licenses can be purchased online, at participating town halls, designated vendors such as tackle shops, DEEP offices, and DEEP stores. If you are under 16 years-old, you must obtain a Youth Fishing Passport which is free and can be found online. In Connecticut, individuals 16 years of age and older must obtain an Inland Fishing License. Prices vary depending on several factors: if you are a resident, if the license is for “inland fishing” or “all waters fishing,” if you are a senior citizen, and more. The same rules apply to obtain a Marine Waters Fishing License, which is fishing from shore or from a boat.
