I was just wondering if you need like a Boating License or anything to Freshwater Fish in a Boat with a motor? For EX: Round Valley

I know you need a Boating License for Saltwater but what would I have to do to Freshwater Fish in a Boat?

Thank You. ;)

They're pretty readily available, shouldn't have a problem finding one close to home.
