Special Fishing Opportunities Offered on Labor Day
HARRISBURG, Pa. (Aug. 22) - The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is offering two special fishing opportunities to entice adults and kids to fish on Labor Day, Sept. 5.
The first is a $1 license for adult residents and non-residents. The license - good for Labor Day only - provides an easy and affordable way for everyone to enjoy a special day with family and friends while fishing on the Commonwealth’s waters, says Steve Kralik, Director of the Bureau of Outreach, Education and Marketing.
“This is a great opportunity for lapsed anglers to renew their interest in the sport, and for first-timers to give fishing a try,” he said.
The second opportunity is the Mentored Youth Panfish Day. This provides youth anglers who obtained a free Mentored Youth Permit or purchased a Mentored Youth Voluntary License during the spring an extra opportunity to fish on 19 lakes.
The Panfish Enhancement lakes were chosen as mentored youth fishing opportunities because the waters are managed to increase the number and size of fish. Panfish include bluegill, pumpkinseed, and redear sunfish, which are collectively called sunfish; black and white crappies; and yellow perch.
“Kids should catch a lot of sunfish, crappies and perch, which makes the day fun,” said Kralik, who noted that as an added incentive, minimum size limits have been lifted for kids and their mentors on this day.
The 19 lakes will be open to all anglers but only mentored youth participants (adults and kids) may keep fish under the minimum size. The lakes included in the program are, by county:
  • Berks - Blue Marsh Reservoir 
  • Cambria - Beaverdam Run Reservoir, Hinkston Run Reservoir, Wilmore Dam 
  • Centre - Foster Joseph Sayers Lake
  • Chester - Chambers Lake
  • Monroe - Bradys Lake, Gouldsboro Lake
  • Montour - Lake Chillisquaque 
  • Pike - Lower and Upper Promised Land Lakes 
  • Somerset - Quemahoning Reservoir 
  • Washington - Cross Creek Lake, Peters Twp. Lake (Reservoir #2) 
  • Westmoreland - Bridgeport Reservoir, Indian Lake, Lower Twin Lake, Northmoreland Lake, Upper Twin Lake
Kralik explained that these opportunities are a way to remind anglers that fishing is a sport which can be enjoyed throughout the year and doesn’t end after trout or bass seasons or when school starts and kids return to the classroom.
“We want to show families where they can go to fish and how easy it can be to fit fishing into their fall schedules,” he said.
To participate in the mentored youth program, adult anglers (16 years or older) must have a valid Pennsylvania fishing license and be accompanied by a youth. Youth anglers can obtain their free PFBC-issued permit or a purchase a voluntary youth fishing license at www.GoneFishingPA.com.
