On Sunday, the Pennsylvania Fish And Boat Commission will waive its license requirement which will allow people to fish within public waterways in Pennsylvania without a license.
“Fish-for-Free Days are the perfect opportunity to try fishing for the first time, reconnect with the water, or share your passion for fishing with someone new,” said Amber Nabors, Director of the PFBC Bureau of Outreach, Education, and Marketing. “Many people will be enjoying the holiday weekend together for picnics at state parks, campgrounds, and other places near the water. Now you can spend some time fishing at no cost, other than the bait you choose.”READ MORE: Consumer Alert Issued For Italian Village Pizza/Shake Shop In Pleasant Hills
