If you have a 2019 Minnesota fishing license, it has officially expired.  The 2020 fishing license year began March 1 and you can purchase yours in many ways, including online.

To avoid scams, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says you should keep the following in mind when purchasing a license:

  • Online license purchases should be made only on the DNR website.
  • If something doesn’t feel right during an online transaction, stop and call the DNR
  • License Center at (651) 297-1230 or (877) 348-0498.
  • Licenses also may be purchased by phone at 1-888-665-4236 (1-MN-LICENSE), or at approved vendors throughout the state. Click here to access a list of approved vendors in Minnesota.
  • If you suspect you have been a victim of fraud in an online license purchase using a credit card, contact the card issuer immediately. You may also contact your local law enforcement agency.
