McKeesport – Dec. 9, 2014– State Sen. James Brewster (D-Allegheny/Westmoreland) said today that the holiday season will come early for many anglers this year as a result of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s “Catch the Value” discounted
“This is by far the best time to buy your fishing license for 2015 and beyond,” Brewster said. “Fishing is a great activity for the whole family and now we can enjoy Pennsylvania’s streams and lakes for a lower price.”
Under the promotion, prices for 2015 licenses will be reduced by $1 for annual resident, non-resident, and senior fishing licenses throughout the fishing season. Additionally, anglers who purchase their licenses during the month of December will receive $3 off of the three-year multi-year license and $5 off of the five-year multi-year license.
“Through the ‘Catch the Value’ program, fishing licenses are at historic lows,” Brewster continued. “This holiday season, consider a fishing license for the angler in your life, and give the gift that keeps on giving.”
During this discount period, the price of licenses will be as follows: a resident annual license, $20; non-resident annual license, $50; senior annual resident, $9; 3-year resident, $60; 3-year non-resident, $150; 5-year resident, $100; and 5-year non-resident, $250. An optional 2015 fishing license button, which serves as a valid display requirement, is available for $5. Each online transaction is subject to a $1.70 processing fee.
