If you plan on fishing in Alaska, you must purchase an Alaska State fishing license. You can purchase it online or at several locations (most sporting goodsstores) throughout the state before you get to Cooper Landing. Please have your license ready to show your guide after you check in at ARC in order to avoid delaying the departure of your trip.
When you buy a license the money you spend supports management and research of Alaska’s fish. Your support ensures the continued, sustainable use of our sport, commercial and subsistence fishing opportunities.
