    Fishing License

    Stupid question, but I'm going to get my fishing license for the first time ever and I'm not sure where the best place is. I've heard you can get one at Wal-Mart; is this true?

    Yeah I looked at that, but it looks like you have to call them and set up an account. Just wondering if there was another way or not

    You don't have to call in.

    I've never signed up with them before so that's why. Not a big deal, just curious if there were other options. Thanks for trying to help

    There are a lot of places you can get them. Fleet Farm sells them as well.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Well looks like Wal-Mart, Sportmans Warehouse, Fleet Farm, etc would be the place to go.

    Re: Fishing License

    We can buy them at our local Hy-Vee but have been buying them online. I believe next weekend is free fishing weekend too.

    Re: Fishing License

    This old man has purchased his last Iowa fishing license. The Story County Conservation Center out at McFarland Park sold me a lifetime permit. The service there was cheerful and convenient.

    Re: Fishing License

    Wal Mart sells them, as does Jax, Theisens, Sportsman Warehouse, Fleet Farm, etc. Pretty much anyplace that sells fishing gear will sell them.

    Also, I believe this weekend is free fishing weekend in Iowa

    Actually, free fishing weekend is next weekend-the first Friday/Saturday/Sunday of June. USA Today was wrong in yesterday's paper, imagine that.
