Guide Licensing Requirements

There are some fishing guides who fish certain rivers are not properly informed of the rules for licensing, which includes USCG Licensing, Random Drug Testing Participation, Insurance and more.  NWGAA has been working with the USCG to provide a definitive list of rivers that require a OUPV Coast Guard License and more.  We will be publishing an article in the next week that outlines waterways that require guides have a coat guard license and be a part of a random drug testing program.

As a member of NWGAA, you can participate in a random drug testing program as long as you have a USCG OUPV License.
