Lower California fishing license fees for healthy non native, non disabled seniors

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


From fitness centers to movie theaters, parking lots and hardware stores, seniors are offered discounts by numerous retailers and service providers - including our National Park Service. As pertaining to recreational fishing, state after state generously provide seniors discount on fishing licenses, but NOT in California. 

In California, a 2020 adult resident freshwater sportfishing fishing license reflects a cost of $51.02, the highest in the U.S.  Healthy, non-native, non-disabled California seniors are NOT provided discount other than if their income were to be less than $11,181 - a number that is $1,300 BELOW THE FEDERAL POVERTY LINE.

As example, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Montana & New Mexico - provide their resident seniors discounts ranging from 34% to 75%. Even high tax based New York provides resident seniors a 80% discount on their annual license fee. 

On behalf of all California fisherpersons, please support this petition with the hope to initiate legislative review and subsequent issuing of a new California annual senior resident fishing license, providing discount without income stipulation to all healthy non-native, non-disabled seniors, beginning at age 65.
