Augusta, ME (NEWS CENTER)-- The movement to force recreational fishermen to buy a saltwater license has been halted. However, Maine fishermen must be part of the National Saltwater Fishing Registry.
Mainers who have a fresh water fishing license are already in the registry. This year, there are no additional fees.
Mainers who do not have a fresh water fishing license must go to the Department of Marine Resources webiste and register with the Maine Saltwater Fishing Registry. There is no charge for the "Striped Bass Endorsement." However, there is a two dollar registration fee.
