There's more!

Digital Fishing Licenses Now in myColorado
Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s resident fishing licenses are now accessible through myColorado. Resident anglers can purchase their fishing licenses the same way they always have and receive a printed physical license, but now have the option to display it within the myColorado app.
Access your digital fishing license in three easy steps:
Create a myColorado account and connect your Colorado Driver License or state ID to it. Your first name, last name and birthdate on your driver license or state ID must match your fishing license.
Tap Digital Fishing License in the app Wallet. Enter the Customer Identification (CID) number and license year from your fishing license.
New licenses can take up to four business days to become available in myColorado.
Purchase a 2021 annual fishing license online, at your local CPW office or at any authorized sales agents statewide. Learn more about fishing in Colorado, including 37 angling locations within Colorado state parks, at cpw.state.co.us.
Colorado State Patrol Now Accepting Digital ID
Have you heard the news? Colorado is the first state in the nation to offer residents the option to electronically transmit digital identification, vehicle registration and proof of insurance to law enforcement.
You can now use your contactless Digital ID with Colorado State Patrol (CSP)! While CSP is the first law enforcement agency accepting Digital ID, the state has been actively engaging with local police and sheriff’s offices. Until full acceptance of the Digital ID is available at all local and state jurisdictions, residents should carry their physical driver license or state identification cards wherever they go. See the Dec. 1 press release for more details.
