HARRISBURG - Area residents interested in outdoor recreation are invited to participate in Pennsylvania's annual "Fish for Free Days" to be held on Saturday, May 23, and Sunday, June 7, said Rep. Sandra Major (R-Susquehanna/Wayne/Wyoming).

On these days, the Fish and Boat Commission will allow anyone to legally fish for some of Pennsylvania's top in-season species such as trout, walleye and certain other species at no cost.

Although normal licensing requirements will be waived on the Fish for Free Days, anglers must still follow the normal rules and regulations, specifically those dealing with seasons, sizes and creel limits.

Fish for Free Days are the perfect opportunity to introduce a friend or relative to the lifelong sport of fishing.
