Lake Mead NRA - Fishing Licenses

Lake Mead National Recreation Area Fishing License Information

Lake Mead NRA is stocked with sport fish and has Large Mouth Bass, Striped Bass, 'Crappie', Blue Gill and sometimes Channel Catfish. Trout fishing is available only on the lower half of the NRA at Lake Mohave and on the Colorado at Katherine's Landing and the Cottonwood Cove area and around Willow Beach.

Because Lake Mead is adjoined by both Arizona and Nevada, fishing licenses at Lake Mead are a matter of jurisdiction. The least complicated situation is when you fish from the shore. You must have a fishing license for the state from which you are fishing from. If you fish from a boat, you must have a fishing license from either Nevada or Arizona and a stamp from the other state. For those lucky enough to be under the age of fourteen, no license is required in either state. That's not all folks. If you are considering trout fishing, you will need a special stamp for that too.

Fishing licenses and stamps are available at available at most marinas and at bait and tackle shops around and on the way to the lake. No0te that fees are subject to change:

Type State Fee
License Arizona & Nevada $21.00 Per Year
Stamp Arizona & Nevada $3.00 Per Year
Trout Arizona & Nevada $5.00 1 Pole
Trout Arizona & Nevada $10.00 2 Poles
