Intro to Fly Fishing Meet-Ups

PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Limited Spots. NO fishing license needed for duration of program.

Beginning July 14, 2020, the PA Fish and Boat Commission staff are offering several FREE Intro to Fly Fishing Meet-Up programs every Tuesday afternoon from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m. at the Western Boat Launch!

Fishing meet-up events are social gatherings for anyone interested in learning more about the basics of fishing. This informal event is the perfect opportunity to socialize, learn, and share fishing experiences with other anglers. Equipment and bait is provided; participants may also bring their own tackle. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Participants will be taught the basics of how to be safe, cast, and go fly fishing. PFBC staff provide all fishing equipment, flies and instruction. Again, NO FISHING LICENSE needed, the equipment, flies and instruction are provided for FREE. Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment. This is a great opportunity to bring your newly purchased fishing rod and learn how to use it!


• Self- check - If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, stay home, stay safe and take care of yourself.

• All participants and instructors must wear a face mask during the duration of the program.

• All participants will only use their PFBC assigned rod and reel OR their own equipment.

• All participants and instructors must practice safe social distancing, (6ft apart), at all times.
