Anglers who buy a one-day fishing license in Colorado and who plan to fish at a State Wildlife Areas are reminded that they must also obtain a wildlife habitat stamp.

The habitat stamp is not needed, however, if an angler fishes waters that are not located on a state wildlife area. Anglers should know where they are going to fish before buying the one-day license to determine if they will be entering a state wildlife area.

A one-day license costs $9, the habitat stamp costs $5.

A habitat stamp is needed by anyone 19 to 64 years old who enters a state wildlife area. Anglers who bring family members to a state wildlife area must be sure to purchase the needed stamps. The cost of a stamp is $10.25 when purchased alone and includes the Colorado search and rescue fee.

The $5 charge for the habitat stamp is automatically added to the cost of all other fishing and hunting licenses.

The Colorado habitat stamp program is new in 2006. Income from the stamp will be used to protect and improve wildlife habitat throughout the state.

Following are the types of fishing licenses available in Colorado. The prices include the $5 habitat stamp, a 25 cent search and rescue fee and a 75 cent wildlife education fee.

Residents: annual license for ages 16 to 63, $31; combination fishing and small game, $46; second rod stamp, $5; annual licenses for anglers 64 or older are free, add $5 for the habitat stamp.

Non-residents: annual license $61; five-day license, $26; second rod stamp $5.
