SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The state Game and Fish Department is reminding fishermen they'll need a new license starting this weekend if they plan on going to their favorite stream or lake.
The new license year begins Sunday.
The department said 170 vendors sell licenses statewide.
An annual fishing license is $25 for a New Mexico resident and $56 for anglers who live outside the state. There are additional fees for some anglers for habitat management and those who plan on fishing on federal lands.
Licenses cost $5 for New Mexicans who are ages 12 to 17, and $8 for residents ages 65 to 69. A free license is available for New Mexico residents 70 and older.
