Do you need a license ?

Recommended Posts

I know in NJ once your over 70 you don't need a fishing license in NJ. Question is , do you need one if your over 70 and live in PA to fish in NJ?

Yes, unfortunately he must purchase a license.

From the 2014 Freshwater Digest, page 16:


• A valid New Jersey fishing license is required for residents at least 16 years and less than 70 years of age (plus all non-residents 16 years and older) to fish the fresh waters of New Jersey, including privately owned waters.
• Resident anglers age 70 and over do not require a fishing license. A driver’s license or other acceptable proof of age containing date of birth and physical description will serve as the actual fishing license. Non-residents 70 and over must purchase a license
