In order to fish in rivers and lakes in the province of Trento, you require both an Italian fishing licence or tourist fishing licence, and a local daily, weekly or yearly permit from the leaseholder of the fishing water, which you can buy at select retailers.
For fishing in lake Garda all you need is a valid fishing licence or tourist license, no daily ticket is required as its waters are state property.
Minors under 14 must always be accompanied by an adult, and both will require a valid fishing licence as well as a suitable local permit.
