HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Memorial Day weekend will be a good time to get out for a bit of fishing, and you won’t need a license.
Sunday is one of Pennsylvania’s designated fish-for-free days.
Anyone can legally fish a stream, river or lake with no license required. Trout and salmon permits and Lake Erie Permits also are not required.
A second fish-for-free day this year will be on July 4.
If you don’t have a rod and reel, people can borrow equipment from fishing tackle loaner sites across the state. It’s just like borrowing a library book.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has locations on its website.
