If you only want to fish one day this year in Pennsylvania, Monday could be your day. Memorial Day is one of only two fish-for-free days in the state this year. The other is July Fourth.
On those two days, anyone, resident or non-resident, can legally fish in Pennsylvania with no fishing license required, according to the state Fish & Boat Commission.
That could save you quite a bit, depending on what kind of license you would normally need to fish in the Keystone State. Rates range from $2.70 for a one-year license for a resident in the National Guard or Armed Forces Reserve to $52.70 for a one-year nonresident license. A one-day license for a Pennsylvania resident age 16 or older costs $11.70 while a one-day tourist license for a non-resident age 16 or older is $26.70.
