State Wildlife Area or
State Trust Land? There is a new regulation you need to know about. See the frequently asked questions.
The 2020 license year runs from March 1, 2020 - March 31, 2021.
In most cases, licenses purchased online or over the phone will reach you by mail within 10 days or you may pick up your license at a license agent location or Colorado Parks and Wildlife park or office.
A temporary authorization number (TAN) can be used until the license(s) are received in the mail. The TAN is valid for 14 days after date of purchase. Please print or write down (must be legible) the TAN and carry it with you while fishing until you receive your license. If the license OR all of the licenses you purchase in this transaction expire in less than 7 days, you will NOT receive the license(s) in the mail; in this situation you are required to carry the TAN with you while fishing.
When you receive your license, review it for accuracy and sign it to validate it. If there are any issues, please contact the call center at (303) 297-1192 or a CPW park or office.
