DNR Days and fishing a winning comboDiscounted licenses make it even easier for anglers to get all of their family and friends out fishing over the July 4th holiday.
MADISON – Discounted licenses make it even easier for anglers to get all of their family and friends out fishing over the July 4th holiday. And now, a new promotional effort can make it easier and cheaper to get them out to the old ball game.
All Wisconsin fishing and hunting license holders can qualify for reduced-rate tickets to select ballgames at Miller Park on “DNR Days” in July, August and September.
“Fishing and baseball – what a great way to have fun with family and friends,” says DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. “Reel in the fish – and then watch Carlos Gomez reel in the big hits and fly balls.”
For $20, Wisconsin residents can buy an annual resident fishing license that gives them 365 days of fishing for about 18 cents a day. There also are options for resident and nonresidents alike to get fishing at a bargain rate.
Fishing is always free for kids 15 and under. This includes resident and nonresidents!
Fishing is always free for Wisconsin residents born before 1927.
Fishing is always free for active resident members of the Armed Services.
$5 buys an annual license for a Wisconsin resident who’s never bought a Wisconsin fishing license or who hasn’t bought one in 10 or more years; the cost is $25.75 for non-residents.
$8 buys a 1-day fishing license for Wisconsin residents, the cost is $10 for non-residents.
$7 buys a license for Wisconsin 16- and 17-year olds and for residents 65 and older.
And there are more fishing license options available for residents and non-residents.
