BUENA VISTA, Colo. — County music superstar Dierks Bentley has been doing a little fishing in Colorado but apparently forgot the important step of getting a license first.
Bently posted a video on his social media pages Monday that showed a Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer apparently writing him a ticket. The video has since been deleted.
"Hey Luke, those fish we caught in Cottonwood Creek this weekend here in Buena Vista," Bentley said in the video. "Yea, we probably should get a fishing license next time because I just got pulled over. You're next."
Last year, Colorado Parks and Wildlife said they cited 707 people for fishing without a license. Spokesperson Jason Clay said that is down by 200-300 over previous years.
Clay says that's down by two to three hundred over previous years.
The ticket for fishing without a license is $139.50, according to Clay.
"He made a mistake but he set a really good example by taking responsibility for that," Clay said.
Bentley and Luke Bryan are in Colorado for the Seven Peaks Music Festival.
The festival took place August 30 through September 1 in Buena Vista and featured a massive lineup of artists. This was its second year.
On Sunday, Bentley posted a picture of a fish he had caught, bragging that it was his "third in 30 mins" and that "Luke Bryan only caught one."
In June, Bentley broke his hand while riding a rental mountain bike in Telluride during the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
