All fishing licenses expire at the end of the calendar year


The Details

How to renew

Use the  MassFishHunt system to renew your license online. If you use a smartphone to renew your fishing license, you can download and display it on your phone rather than printing a copy.

You can renew your freshwater license in person at license agent locations, which include:

  • Select retail stores — Most accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
  • MassWidlife offices — Only accept cash or checks.

You have to bring your license with you when fishing, and either show a paper copy or display a true, complete, and legible image of your license on your smartphone if an official asks you to.
