Southern Ute Tribal Waters
As of this moment (literally, we just got the news today), we are no longer selling Southern Ute Tribal Fishing Licenses at our shop. This is not exclusive to Duranglers either as this was a Ute tribal decision, and licenses are no longer sold at ANY of the previous retail or office locations. The ONLY place you can purchase Southern Ute Tribal Water licenses is now on their online store. Easy peasy!
As weird as it is to say this, New Mexico was actually first to the online license game and has been at it for a few years. One can still call their toll free number and purchase over the phone as well. As a refresher, here is what you need to know if you are fishing the San Juan River Quality Waters (or anywhere in New Mexico).
