Don’t miss Pa.’s Fish-for-Free Day on July 4

from the Office of Rep. Mark Rozzi

Jul 03, 2019

Thursday, July 4, is a free fishing day in Pennsylvania, meaning residents and nonresidents can fish legally all day without a license.

While all other fishing regulations apply, this is a great opportunity to introduce friends and family to the sport of fishing, or to reconnect with the sport if you haven’t fished in some time.

While you’re at a lake or park, you can try your hand at fishing as well.

People can even borrow equipment from dozens of fishing tackle loaner sites across the state.

More information is available on the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission website, which includes interactive maps, regional fishing reports and tips on fishing fundamentals.

As always, if you have questions about this or any other state government-related issue, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
