Anyone who is 18 or older will require a hunting or fishing license, regardless of what they planning on doing on the river. The 600 places or so that will require a hunting or fishing license consist of over 350 state wildlife areas and about 240 state trust lands.

According to the Daily Sentinel, a spokesperson from Colorado Parks and Wildlife states that the two reasons for doing this are:

  • To make sure wildlife is able to live in wildlife areas
  • To make sure people can keep enjoying and supporting the places they are using for recreation

There are different options when it comes to fishing and hunting licenses, like day licenses, five-day licenses, annual licenses, fishing, and small game combo licenses, and more.

A fishing or hunting license will be required at the Loma Boat Launch, and many other places in Colorado, starting on July 1. Find out more about getting your fishing or hunting license from Colorado Parks and Wildlife here.
