Do non-resident children need a fishing license?

Non-resident children age 15 and younger are not required to purchase a fishing license. 

All non-residents 16 and older must have a valid nonresident license to fish in Kansas, unless fishing on a private pond.  Guests of landowners fishing on streams and rivers must have a fishing license
