The sun's just come up and you've cast your first line into the wild mountain stream. It's only you in your waders and the fish out here. Later, you'll take the kids to a fishing pond in town, then maybe do some prime lake fishing this evening. “How lucky I am to be in such a  fisherman's paradise,” you say to yourself, as you cast another line.

Fishing licenses are available for purchase at Red River Angler & Sports, Williams Outdoor Store & Hardware, The Starr Trading Post & Sitzmark Sports in Red River. You can also buy your license online here.
