HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – You won’t need a license if you want to do a bit of fishing on the Fourth of July holiday.
Thursday 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.
July 4 is the second of two fish-for-free days this year.
If you don’t have a rod and reel, you can borrow equipment from fishing tackle loaner sites across the state. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has locations on its website.
