A non-resident is anyone who has residency in any state other than Oklahoma.

How to Obtain an Oklahoma Fishing License on Your Own

You can get an Oklahoma fishing license on your own in a couple of ways.

  1. Go to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC) websiteThere you will need to create a username and password to set up an account.  You will answer a series of questions and provide proof of residency or exemption if needed.
  2. Purchase your license from an agent. To find an agent near you, you will need to go to the ODWC website and do a search. There are agents located in several sporting goods stores in the area. Once you have found your location, be sure to take any documentation with you as to residency or exemption status.

Government websites can be outdated and difficult to navigate. Be sure to read everything carefully because there are specific requirements and procedures to getting your fishing license. Failing to comply and follow each step by step could lead to denial of the license.

If you decide to purchase your license in person from retailers like Walmart, and other fishing tackle and bait shops, give yourself plenty of time to wait in lines and keep in mind, the associates may not be educated with fishing license information.

But luckily, there are alternatives if you can't or don’t want to do it yourself.
