Three Family Fishing Festivals in June provide great opportunities for adults and children to learn basic fishing skills at no cost.
The festivals include:
- June 3, NW Region: M. K. Goddard State Park – Launch #3, Mercer County, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. (for more information or to register)
- June 11, NC Region: Bald Eagle State Park - Pavilion #6 & #7, Centre County, 3 - 7 p.m. (for more information or to register)
- June 25, NE Region: Frances Slocum State Park – Environmental Education Center, Luzerne County, 1 - 5 p.m. (for more information or to register)
“Family Fishing Festivals are a convenient way to introduce friends and family to the sport of fishing at no cost,” said Carl Richardson, PFBC Education Section Manager. “These are educational events designed for families with little or no fishing experience. Participants will learn basic fishing skills and have an opportunity to practice those skills while fishing during the program.”
The PFBC waives the fishing license requirement during the program. The program is open to all ages, including children ages 5 and older. The PFBC provides equipment, bait, and tackle. PFBC staff will be present to teach skills and assist those who fish. Preregistration is required.
