Trout fishing season is open in Rhode Island with restrictions to reduce crowds in line with public health guidance. Also, ponds in State Parks and some other stocked waters are off limits.
Due to the current stay at home order, out-of-state anglers should fish in their local state for the time being. We continue to monitor COVID-19 restrictions and hope to open RI waters to out-of-state residents as soon as we can safely do so.
Visit www.dem.ri.gov/fishing for additional info and updates.
What is a RIHFID?
RIHFID stands for Rhode Island Hunting and Fishing ID. All customers of the new hunting and fishing system will be assigned their own unique number - your RIHFID. Your RIHFID will be printed on your license no matter where it is purchased - online or at an agent. If you purchased a 2017 or 2018 Saltwater License you already have a RIHFID; just click the "Find your RIHFID Number" button to retrieve it.
