The answer is: Maybe, but probably not. In many states, small children don’t need a license to fish. However, they may be limited to certain types of fishing, such as a pole and line, gig, bow, crossbow, snaring, grabbing, and snagging. The only way to be certain is to check the rules and regulations of your state.
