PUBLIC & BEACH FISHING
Fishing is a favorite for many visitors and residents of the Gulf Coast. Below are some of the areas where you can fish without chartering a boat. There are some fees involved at various locations so do check out rules and regulations. Good luck!
A saltwater fishing license is required for all of the waters in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. This includes the Intracoastal Waterway and the back bays. Residents and non-residents are exempt if they are under the age of 16 and residents are exempt at age 65 and older.
