License costs may increase
The Minnesota Legislature is currently considering a bill, which if enacted, would increase the cost of a resident fishing license to $21 in 2011 and to $25 in 2015. Today, a fishing license costs $17. The DNR has not asked for an increase, or provided support for the bill. The committee that oversees the DNR budget has recommended a license fee increase. The Game & Fish Fund, which is made up largely from license sales, will dip into the red in 2014.
