Both Pennsylvania residents and non-residents will be able to legally fish on Pennsylvania waterways with no fishing license required. Trout/Salmon and Lake Erie permits are also not required.
This is for July 4 only. The previous “fish for free” day happened May 30. According to the fish and boating commission, all other fishing regulations will still apply.
License holders are encouraged to bring a family member or friend to give fishing a try. If you are interested in purchasing a fishing license for the 2021-22 season, you can register online.
