Walleye, bass and trout in eight Pennsylvania waterways have been tagged in conjunction with Cabela’s “Wanna Go Fishing for Millions?” promotion. Registered fishermen, who catch a tagged fish, win a prize. The promotion is already underway, but PA Fish and Boat Commission spokesman Eric Levis says it coincides perfectly with their annual “Fish-for-Free” day on Labor Day, May 30th.
The Fish and Boat Commission will be holding special events, on “Fish-for-Free” day, at six of the waters where the tagged fish can be found. Levis says they want more people to come out and fish. “It’s a fun sport, and our experience is that when families come out with their kids… the kids love it, the parents love it, and they realize that it’s a great recreational activity.”
Levis notes that anyone can fish for free on Memorial Day, across the state. You don’t have to go where the promotion or special events are taking place. The next “Fish-for-Free” day, during which no license is required, will be Labor Day, September 5th.
