Fishing Rod Loaner Program at TREC

If you like to fish or want to try fishing, you can borrow a rod, reel, and basic tackle from the TREC on a first-come, first-serve basis. This is made possible through a partnership with the PA Fish and Boat Commission and Presque Isle State Park. To borrow equipment, visit the main desk at the TREC and sign out the needed equipment. A driver's license is required. Borrowers are responsible for bait. A fishing license is required for those 16 years and older.

All equipment is due back before 6:00 PM.

No fee. Register at the TREC Visitor Information desk.

Programming is subject to modification or cancellation at the discretion of park staff.  If you need an accommodation to participate in Park activities due to a disability, please contact Presque Isle State Park at 814-833-7424 to make arrangements for your visit.  With at least three days’ notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs.  Please call the Erie ASL Interpreters’ Office at (814) 806-2511 for more information about this service.
