Lake Mead Fishing License

When fishing within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area each person 12 years and older will need a 1-Day Permit to fish which costs $18.00. If you are fishing a second Consecutive Day, the cost to add is $7.00.
If you plan to fish more than one time with me in a year and are not a resident of Nevada, the better option is to purchase the NV Interstate Boundary Waters license at $30.00 for the year.
Licenses must be purchased prior to the trip’s departure. Your options are:
1) You may purchase online at
2) You may purchase them locally in Las Vegas at a brick and mortar store such as Bass Pro Shops or Walmart. I suggest that as your last choice and if you do not have a US Social Security number avoid Walmart and Kmart.
If you experience difficulties obtaining a license, you may call (855) 542-6369.

What is included in the cost of your trip?

All bait and tackle.
Bottled water.
Fish filleting should you wish to keep your catch.
A fun-filled memorable trip.

How do I get my catch home?

Many of my customers take their catch home with them. After filleting, I put your fish into 1 gallon Ziploc bags. From that point, I have heard of a couple of methods to get them home. One is that the traveler takes a soft-sided ice chest with them and packs the fish into that bag with ice which is contained in a plastic bag. They then use it as a personal carry on piece of luggage. The other is to use a hard-sided case and use it as checked baggage. You may not use dry ice to package your items as it is a prohibited chemical. Whatever you decide, contact your carrier to find out what specific rules they have in relation to either method.

What should I bring on the Fishing Trip?

Your fishing license
A hat, cap or visor
Clothing appropriate to the seasonal weather
A snack or lunch for longer trips

How do I get to the lake?

Your options are to hire a transportation company to pick you up in a Limo or Van which is very expensive.
Call a taxi – although it is only about 30 miles from the major hotels I have heard some of my customers who choose this option paying upwards of $125 plus tip for two people going one direction.
Rent a car which I suggest. some of my customers have paid as little as $20 for a 24hour rental by planning ahead and shopping around. This also gives you the flexibility to see some of the sights like Hoover Dam which is about 7 miles from our meeting spot or Valley of Fire State Park.
Uber has been working very well for some of my clients. They are quick and so far the most a client has paid for a trip to the lake from the strip is $38.00. Make sure you make arrangements with your uber driver for a pick up later in the day for your ride back as this will guarantee somebody will be there.

Can I do fly fishing?

Yes, most definitely. Though, call me before or after you book the trip to work out the details.
