Special Licenses & Permits

Fishing Regulations Oklahoma Freshwater Fishing

Fiscal-Year Licenses

The fiscal-year licenses (combination, youth combination) are valid from July 1 to June 30. These licenses allow fishing during the time period specified on the license.

Resident 5-Year Combination Hunting/Fishing License

People who have been residents of Oklahoma for at least six months may buy a 5-year combination hunting/fishing license. Holders of these licenses are exempt from the annual fishing and hunting license only. Holders of resident 5-year licenses who become residents of another state during the 5-year period of their license may continue to use their license as a nonresident annual fishing or hunting license. When hunting, they must buy any season-specific hunting licenses that are not covered by a nonresident annual hunting license.

Lifetime Senior Citizen Combination Hunting/Fishing License

Residents born on or after Jan. 1, 1923, upon reaching age 65 (or those who turn 65 during the calendar year) are eligible to buy a senior citizen combination hunting/fishing license, which is valid for life. The license provides the same exemptions as a resident lifetime combination hunting/fishing license. Anyone born before Jan. 1, 1923, is exempt but must carry proof of age such as a driver’s license.

Disability Fishing License

Persons who have resided in Oklahoma for at least six months and who are receiving Social Security disability benefits, Supplemental Security Income benefits, or persons receiving disability benefits under the Federal Railroad Retirement Act or the Multiple Injury Trust Fund may buy a five-year disability fishing license for $10. Applicants for this license are urged to ask for a Benefits Verification Statement from Social Security at (800) 772-1213.

Lifetime Disabled Veteran Combination Hunting/Fishing License

This license is available to resident disabled veterans, as certified by the Veterans Affairs Department. For veterans with a disability of less than 60 percent, the cost of the license is $200. For veterans with a disability of 60 percent or more, the cost of the license is $25. The license provides the same benefits as a resident lifetime combination hunting/fishing license.

Land Access Permit

A $40 annual Land Access Permit is required of all residents who fish or hunt on Honobia Creek and Three Rivers Wildlife Management Areas, unless exempt. Nonresidents are required to buy an $85 annual permit, no exemptions.

3-Day/Annual Wildlife Conservation Passport

People who use Department-managed areas for nonhunting or nonfishing activities, such as birdwatching or photography, are required to have either a Wildlife Conservation Passport or any current hunting or fishing license issued by the Wildlife Department.

Buying a hunting or fishing license can cost less than buying a Wildlife Conservation Passport. Plus, license holders are granted the privileges of that license and can enjoy those activities during the license term.

Residents who are younger than 18 at the start of the calendar year, and students and instructors participating in bona fide educational tours or activities sponsored or organized by an education institution or any other organized event sanctioned by and approved in advance by the Wildlife Department are exempt from the Wildlife Conservation Passport requirement.

Cherokee Nation Compact License

Cherokee Nation citizens who are Oklahoma residents will receive a state issued/authorized combination hunting/fishing license purchased by and distributed by the Cherokee Nation. In addition, one deer (deer gun antlered) and one turkey (spring turkey) will be included. Nonresidents are not eligible. This is a tribal/state, dual jurisdiction compact license.

These compact licenses will cover the same privileges as provided to other Oklahoma citizens. All regulations including checking of deer and turkey are the same. All the same statewide regulations apply to holders of a compact license regardless of where the person hunts or fishes, including tribal lands. More restrictive tribal standards may be imposed by the Cherokee Nation to hunting and fishing on the Cherokee Nation’s Indian Country.

No refunds will be provided by ODWC to tribal members for licenses that have already been purchased, including lifetime licenses.

For additional Cherokee license information, call the Cherokee Nation (918) 453-5000.
