Pennsylvania offers “Family Fishing Festivals”

Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is holding “Family Fishing Festivals” at various state parks to introduce families to the sport in May and June. “The programs are a convenient way for families to learn fishing skills and enjoy the sport at no cost,” said Carl Richardson, PFBC Education Section manager.
The program is open to all ages, including children ages 5 and up. The PFBC is waiving the fishing license requirement for registered participants age 16 and older during the program. The PFBC is contributing equipment, bait and tackle.
