Stream Fishing Permits
Southern Ute Tribal Members
Enrolled Southern Ute Tribal members, both juveniles and adults, must have in their possession a Southern Ute Fishing Permit when fishing on the Southern Ute Reservation. No state fishing permit is required and enrolled status allows for fishing on all waters within the Reservation boundaries. See Stream Access for specific restrictions regarding access on tribal assignments, allotments, and private property. A Tribal member fishing permit is issued free of charge and is valid for the calendar year in which it is issued. A Tribal member must show proof of enrollment by presenting his or her tribal census card.
Tribal members are now able to obtain their fishing licenses online. Please follow the link below to obtain your license for both the reservation and the Brunot area. https://store.southernute-nsn.gov/
All non- members must obtain a Tribal fishing permit to fish on designated Tribal waters. A Colorado State fishing license is not required to fish on Tribal waters but is required to fish on private property. See Stream Access for specific access restrictions on Tribal assignments, allotments, and private property.
