This is Question No. 34 on this year’s Spring Fish & Game Hearings Questionnaire.

As in most states, fishing license options differ or Wisconsin residents and nonresidents.

Nonresidents have more short-term license options, but are charged significantly higher fees than residents for comparable licenses. A resident annual fishing license, for example, is $20, while a comparable nonresident annual license is $50.

Although higher license fees for nonresidents are a long-standing tradition, the reason why this is done is unclear.

Fisheries management programs receive very little additional revenue from resident taxes, such as income taxes, and higher license fees likely discourage nonresidents from buying fishing licenses. In addition, we spend considerable resources verifying residency and issuing separate licenses.

A simjplified alternative may be to have general license types for all anglers, regardless of residence, that are set at an intermediate price that maintains current revenue levels.
