Question: I just bought a fishing license. How do the regulations define who a “resident” is in reference to buying a fishing license? (Michael)

Answer: Section 70 of the Fish and Game Code defines “resident” as any person who has resided continuously in the State of California for six months or more immediately prior to the date of his application for a license or permit, any person on active military duty with the Armed Forces of the United States or auxiliary branch thereof, or any person enrolled in the Job Corps established pursuant to section 2883 of Title 29 of the United States Code.

I find it interesting how different government agencies define a resident. 
DFW says after 6 months
DMV says after 15 days.
You would think all state agencies would agree on residencies

The DMV makes more money if you are a resident whereas the DFW makes more money if you are a nonresident.
It's all in the mind...

So does this mean a person could live in California for six months, get a resident license, then move out of state and their California fishing license will still be valid?

In the game of biggest fish, if you can't enjoy routinely gettin' your ass handed to you, by great fishermen, then you don't belong in the NCKA.

Yes.  Once a license is purchased, it's valid for the defined period on the license.  Similarly, somebody could live in CA for six months, buy a lifetime license at the resident rate and then move out of state.  That CA lifetime license is still valid.

I actually have lifetime hunt and/or fishing licenses from multiple states since I've moved around a bit for my job.  In many other states, the price difference between resident/non-resident makes it worthwhile (since I still visit those states).

The DMV and State Department of Boating and Waterways can't even agree on registration for an Adventure Islands.  One thing all California State agencies seem to agree upon is that illegal aliens (or is that illegal residents) are a protected species.
