FRANKLIN COUNTY — The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has an invitation for everyone who has always wanted to go fishing but just hasn’t got around to it.

On Sunday you can fish without a license.

Fish-for-Free Days allow anyone (resident or non-resident) to legally fish on Pennsylvania waterways on the designated days with NO FISHING LICENSE REQUIRED (Trout/Salmon and Lake Erie permits are also NOT required).

All other fishing regulations still apply.

The Chamber Staff is always available to talk with you about how your business could greatly benefit from membership.

Fish-for-Free Days are great ways for families to “catch” the fun of fishing.

The public can go to the locations identified and borrow rods, reels and a tackle box full of hooks and other terminal tackle. This equipment is borrowed in much the same way books are borrowed from a library. Those wanting to borrow gear complete a form and the loan is made. At the end of the loan period, the equipment is returned to the site.
