The next fish-for-free day in Pennsylvania is coming up on Thursday. July Fourth is the second such day this year. The first was Memorial Day.
On the special 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.
