Fish for Free Days

Fish-for-Free Days allow anyone to legally fish on Pennsylvania waterways on the designated days with NO FISHING LICENSE REQUIRED. Trout/Salmon and Lake Erie permits are also NOT required.
You don’t even need to be a PA resident! All other fishing regulations still apply.

Fish-for-Free Days are great ways for families to “catch” the fun of fishing!

Each year, the days are announced on the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission official page
