Facts about Fishing

The cost of a license for New Mexico residents is $25 for a license that is good for a year (license year is April 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018). Non-resident licenses are $56 for the year. Short-term licenses are the same price for residents and non-residents alike and can be purchased for one day ($12) or five days ($24). Seniors (ages 65-69) and handicapped can purchase an annual license for $8. Juniors (age 12-17) pay $5 for an annual license. Licenses are free for individuals over the age of 70.

Anglers also must purchase a habitat improvement stamp ($5) and habitat management stamp ($4), which is good for the whole year and covers not only fishing licenses but hunting licenses, as well. A second rod validation (optional) is available for $4. There is also a $1 vendor’s fee for all licenses. Applicants for hunting and fishing licenses are required by law to provide the last four digits of their social security number.

The bag limit for brown, brook and rainbow trout, lake trout and Kokanee salmon is a combined total of five fish in one day and 10 in possession (two daily bag limits may be in possession). For example, a licensed angler may keep five brown trouts as the bag limit; or three brown and two rainbow trout; or one brook trout, two lake trout and two Kokanee salmon. Only two fish in the daily bag limit maybe Cutthrout trout. No Gila trout (not found in Jemez) may be in possession at any time. Special trout waters are found in the Jemez and are normally well-marked, but it might be a good idea to consult your fishing proclamation for special regulations that may exist. The website has complete fishing rules and information.

Fishing and hunting licenses are available in the Jemez Valley at CWW Feed Store in San Ysidro (834-7038), and Amanda’s Jemez Mountain Country Store in La Cueva (829-4333).
