Cost of fishing license varies in each state. Some suggest that they have paid as little as $20 for an annual permit at Walmart. However, to obtain more accurate rates, you will need to contact your local Walmart branch.
You can get your license directly from DNR Direct license and permit vendors, online through the IDNR website, or by calling 1-888-6PERMIT (1-888-673-7648).
