Fishing fun can begin as soon as you have a fishing license and, if needed, a permit for trout fishing or fishing on Lake Erie. Getting a license is simple and as convenient as logging on or going to a licensing agent near you. 

In addition to the licenses, permits are needed for commercial fishing, and some recreational fishing like fishing derbies and cast net fishing. Find most of the recreational permits online through our e-commerce platform, HuntFishPA.

Some anglers may qualify for exemptions, discounts or free licenses and permits

Landowners with property available for public fishing may qualify for a reduced fee license.
