Free fishing permit

Looking on the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge website for the free self issue fishing permit to carry while in the refuge area. All I can find is a 2016 permit. Are you still required to carry the updated permit and if so where can I get one. It is much easier to carry the permit and avoid a fine for not having one even though I have never in 15 years been stopped and asked to provide the permit. It would be my luck not having one get stopped and fined. Any help or information on the permit.
