Ohio Fishing License, Now Online

The process for getting an Ohio Fishing License for 2011 has frustrated some people. The process can be more time consuming than in the past, up to 2 or 3 hours by some reports. With that said, you can now purchase and print your license from the comfort of your home.

I especially like this method. Your purchase results in a downloaded PDF document that you can keep tucked away on your computer. This allows you to reprint your license should it become wet or unreadable. The purchase process isn’t the smoothest I have seen and I did have problems going through the web site with Firefox 4. It would redirect continually to an empty shopping cart. I had no problems in Internet Explorer.

The new online application can be found on the DNR web site.
