Buying Your License

New Hampshire fishing licenses can be purchased online at fishnh.com, from one of our 185 friendly license agents statewide (listed at fishnh.com/licensing), or in person or by mail at Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301. A $2 transaction fee is charged for each license form ($3 for Internet purchases).

Carry Your License

The license must be carried on your person when fishing or hunting. For fishing licenses (not hunting), a pdf or other fixed image of a valid license visible on a smart phone is sufficient to comply with the law, as long as a Conservation Officer can view the information contained on the license, and a photo ID can be presented.

Non-resident
Student Licenses

Full-time students attending school in New Hampshire may purchase non-resident fishing or hunting licenses at resident rates. Students may be in high school, college or graduate school; they must be registered for at least 12 credit hours per semester. To get the reduced rate, you must show a valid, current school ID. These licenses are sold only at Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord NH 03301, in person or by mail.
