Anglers who buy a one-day fishing license in Colorado and who plan to fish at state wildlife areas are reminded that they must also obtain a wildlife habitat stamp. The Colorado habitat stamp program is new in 2006. Income from the stamp will be used to protect and improve wildlife habitat throughout the state.A habitat stamp is needed by anyone 19 to 64 years old who enters a state wildlife area. Anglers who bring family members to a state wildlife area must be sure to purchase the needed stamps. The cost of a stamp is $10.25 when purchased alone and includes the Colorado search and rescue fee.The habitat stamp is not needed, however, if an angler fishes waters that are not located on a state wildlife area. Anglers should know where they are going to fish before buying the one-day license to determine if they will be entering a state wildlife area.For more information, go to the Colorado Division of Wildlife Web site at
