This news release was archived on Sunday, May 5, 2013

As always, Montana's small streams won't open for fishing until the third Saturday of May, which is May 18 this year.

A full season fishing license for residents can be purchased for $18 dollars, or if you want to try your luck for a few days, a resident two-day license is available for $5. An $8 conservation license is required for anglers age 12 and older. Resident youth 12-14 who purchase the conservation license receive a free fishing license. A full season fishing license is good until Feb. 28, 2014.
