    California fishing licenses are now available for purchase online. Anyone with access to the Internet and a printer can buy and print a valid license from the convenience of their home 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and be on their way to fish minutes after logging on.
    All resident and non-resident licenses, both annual and short-term, and selected stamps are now available online. Annual license buyers can expect their permanent licenses to arrive in the mail within 10 days of purchase. Non-residents may purchase a 10-day license. Stamps available include Second Rod, Sport Fishing Ocean Enhancement and Bay Delta Enhancement stamps. Report cards must still be obtained from one of the 1,800 authorized license agents throughout the state or at local DFG license sales offices.
    One thing to keep in mind is if you fail to have your license in possession after purchasing one online, you are still subject to being cited by the game warden for not having the license in possession. This is the same as a traffic officer citing you for not having your driver's license in possession even if one may have been issued to you.
    Costs remain the same whether you buy your license online or from an authorized license agent.
    Also anyone fishing without a license on July 4 (free fishing day) must have report cards in the designated areas.
