The thing I got use to in North Carolina that I wish they had here, when you buy a license its good for 1 year from date of purchase not from jan 1 to dec 31 of same year. But NC also had some weird rules like you didnt need a license if you fished in the county you lived in with only live bait.

i think that they should keep the methout that they do things the same  other wise you would have a family of 50 people out there fishing hiding everything that they catch.  i've seen this happen up at jefferson.  there was an oriental family up there and there must've been 30 people running around,they even put up at tent by the parking lot  where they had to walk right past a sign that said no camping. there was no where to fish along shore unless you wanted to try and hike around(not an easy deal) and there were guys manning like 5 or 6 poles apiece.  never saw a ranger all day.  they were catching fish and having their kids run them up to the trucks.  how many of those people do you think actually had fishing licenses???  it doesn't really bother me about the price increase as long as they do something with it and not just raise the price becauses prices of everything else everywhere are going up...
First off let me just say oriental is a carpet asian is the people, :p Now those 30 people had the same right as you to fish all together, just like taking your son or daughter fishing with your parents. Not positive but Jefferson has a bag limit of 2 trout per person, which means they could have kept 60 fish. As far as camping as long as long as you dont stay over night I dont think its camping, they could set a tent to get out of the sun or whatever. But I understand your veiw, there is a chance not all of them had fishing licenses which is bad but you think if they raise the prices they will go out and buy one? People break the laws all the time and they will always be there so you are right we need more enforcement.

CripeZ...a movie for two with popcorn and drinks lasting 2 hours costs as much as an annual fishing license...

One ticket to the Avs, Nuggets or Broncos for 3 hours is more than an annual license...

6 beers at an upscale bar or sporting event...

Dinner out for two at a nice restaurant...one evening...
Everything you just mentioned comes with a bonus because of the lady attached to my arm at all of those, some reason the same thing doesnt happen when I go fishing. I cant even get her to go fishing with me tell the weather is 70+
