Fishing and Hunting: All hunting and fishing regulations, including licenses, are still in effect during the COVID-19 State of Emergency and Stay at Home Advisory. The revenue generated from license sales goes directly towards conservation, research, stocking, education, and restoration. Licenses can be obtained online by visiting the MassFishHunt online portal. Outdoor activities, and travel to and from those activities, are still permitted. All residents should practice social distancing by remaining 6 feet away from other people while participating in outdoor activities.
Use MassFishHunt, the official licensing and harvest reporting system for Massachusetts, to purchase and print saltwater and freshwater fishing, hunting, and trapping licenses, permits, and stamps, report a harvest, and manage your account. You can purchase licenses and permits in person at select locations. You can buy recreational saltwater fishing permits by phone at 1-866-703-1925.
