Getting a Yukon Fishing License

You need a valid Yukon fishing licence if you want to fish in Yukon unless you are one of the exceptions. Get familiar with the Yukon fishing regulations summary before you go fishing.

Licence requirements : You will need to provide your legal name, birth date, phone number and address to get a fishing licence. You will also need a piece of government-issued photo ID.

You can buy your fishing license: In person from the Department of Environment office in Teslin:
Address- kilometre 1246 Alaska Highway. Phone: 867-390-2685. Hours: Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
