Learn a lifelong hobby that you may enjoy on your own or with your kids and grandkids.
From shaded streams to stocked lakes, you don’t have to go far in Pennsylvania to catch the “big one.”
Fishing is a lifelong skill and hobby that you can enjoy by yourself or with family and friends. You can practice putting the bait on, casting and reeling in, or learn the art of fly tying and casting with a fly rod. During Pennsylvania’s colder months, you may try braving the cold and trying your hand at ice-fishing. Don’t forget your license before you head out on the water!
