Pennsylvania Fish-for-Free Days allow anyone (resident or non-resident) 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).

Fish-for-Free Days are great ways for families to “catch” the fun of fishing! No need for a fancy rod, reel or other equipment. The idea is to be out-of-doors and reconnect with nature. And who knows, you just may catch a free dinner!
