Pennsylvania is home to more than 1 million anglers, but we are always looking to attract even more residents to this fun sport. As a way to offer more fishing opportunities for families, the state offers two Fish for Free days each year. For 2015, the Fish for Free days are scheduled for Sunday, May 24, and Saturday, July 4. During Fish for Free days anyone (resident or non-resident) is allowed to legally fish on all Pennsylvania waterways. No license is required. All other fishing regulations will still apply. This is a great way to expose the next generation of anglers to the outdoors.
