New multi-year fishing licenses available

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 by The Press in Opinion

A new fishing season is on the horizon, and anglers can prepare themselves by purchasing a multi-year fishing license, available for the first time this year from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission State Rep. Julie Harhart, R-183rd, said Nov. 30.

Available now, the PFBC will sell three-year and five-year fishing licenses for the first time in its history. A three-year fishing license will be valid through 2015 and a five-year license will last through 2017. Customers who purchase a multi-year license will save money by not having to pay transaction and processing fees each year.

A three-year resident license costs $64.70, while a three-year senior resident license is $31.70. A five-year resident license is $106.70 and a five-year senior resident license costs $51.70. For full pricing information, or to purchase a license, visit

Individuals who do purchase a multi-year license will be eligible for rewards from the PFBC, including a free online subscription to Pennsylvania Angler and Boater magazine and various offers from popular retailers.

Customers who purchase their multi-year license through either the PFBC Outdoor Shop or from an issuing agent will receive a website link where instructions about accessing their rewards will be located.

In addition to the Outdoor Shop, multi-year fishing licenses can be purchased at more than 900 issuing agents and county treasurers' offices.
