This year, in addition to 3-year and 5-year licenses, you can lock-in both convenience and savings for a longer period of time with the new 10-year fishing license. As always, if you’ve already purchased a fishing license to fish in 2017, we THANK YOU for supporting both aquatic resources and recreational fishing in the Keystone State.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has scheduled several opportunities in May and June for families to get out and enjoy fishing.
These events lead up to the two statewide Fish for Free Days: May 28 (the Sunday before Memorial Day) and July 4.
Family Fishing Festivals are educational events designed for families with little or no fishing experience. The fishing license requirement is being waived for registered Family Fishing Festival participants, 16 years of age and older.
