Is there a plan for New Hampshire to have a state saltwater license, so that registry fees paid by anglers would go the state instead of to the federal government?
A saltwater license was approved this year by the NH State Legislature and signed by the Governor. The license will go into effect January 1, 2011, and will cost $15 for residents and non-residents.
- What if I have a saltwater license in another state - will I need to buy a NH saltwater fishing license? The law implementing NH's saltwater license provides for reciprocity only with Maine and Massachusetts, provided they also offer reciprocity for our licensed saltwater anglers. Licenses from other Atlantic states will not qualify.
