Proposed Fishing License Fee Increase

by: Cy Ball

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is experiencing budget shortfalls.  Operational costs have increased, including a 322% increase in water leasing for hatcheries. CPW receives no tax dollars. Wildlife managers since 2009 have cut $40 million from the agency’s budget, including $10 million in the last fiscal year.  Fishing license fees have been the same for the last decade. CPW would like to increase fees.  What do YOU think about this?  Click the link below, and let us hear from you!
