Habitat Stamp Required

If you are paddling rivers that start or end in state wildlife areas, the DOW requires you to have a Habitat stamp. These stamps can be purchased anywhere hunting or fishing liscenses are sold. The DOW is out and making sure that kayakers know about this program. I have not heard of tickets being issued, but I'm sure that as the season progresses, we will see them writing tickets. I'm sure some of you have run into this already.

Here are some articles about this topic

Just get a fishing permit

Even if you dont fish or care too, or want to have anythign to do with fishing. Also get a SAR stamp for a quarter or so incase ya cant walk out. SAR aint cheap. Then youll have your habitat stamp and SAR stamp and be able to feed your kids

Does fishing license cover this, or is it extra?

When you buy your fishing license the habitat stamp is required. It is an additional $5 over the cost of the license, but if you have a 2006 fishing license you have the habitat stamp as well as the search and rescue. We sell both the licenses and the habitat at Golden River Sports.

recently bought the habitat stamp for $5 in fraser, but couldn't get the sar without a fishing license.

Where can you get just the sar stamp?
I bought one in eldo a couple years, but don't climb much anymore due to kayaking addiction.

You can get the SAR with the annual habitat stamp without buying a fishing license. The cost is $10.25 for habitat and SAR. Go to the website on my last post for more info. When you purchase a fishing license the SAR is included and the habitat is $5 for a total cost of $31.
