Hi again,

With all the shops closed, where can one get a license? You can apply online, but need to get it printed out at a landing, tackle shop, Big 5, etc...

Thanks!

Buy it online (CDFW) and print your receipt and temporary license. Those are good enough to fish with. A week or so later the permanent one arrives in the mail. One of the VERY FEW things California did right.

Talked to Joey at Squidco 3/27. He is open and wanting to sell. Best place to get a recent fish report also.

Squidco is open but you can't browse the store.They're doing a will call thing or shopping for you while you stand back.
