To reply to tjm, the reason I thought it should not is because I always read the conservation partner rules and was clear that the other tags and minor permits are not part of it. If the trout "Stamp" is included, and it is truly a LIFETIME permit. I see it as a screaming bargain. When a resident is 65, you no longer need to buy a license, but the trout tag must still be purchased. If for $35 a 60 year old can purchase a Lifetime fishing permit; yes the annual fishing permit is maybe just about break even for 5 years, but the trout tag puts it over the top...and if it continues for life, in the form of a trout tag, a real bargain.
