  State Park Info - Fishing Tackle Loaner Program

Borrowing Fishing Tackle as Easy as Borrowing a Book!

Cook Forest State Park is pleased to announce their involvement in the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's Fishing Tackle Loaner Program. The public can come to the Park Office in Cooksburg and borrow rods, reels, and a tackle box with hooks and other basic tackle. This equipment is borrowed in much the same way books are borrowed from a library. Those wanting to borrow the equipment complete a form and the loan is made. At the end of the loan period the equipment is returned to the site.

This program is a partnership between the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, the American Sportfishing Association, and Cook Forest State Park.

The program is designed to make it easy for anyone to access fishing tackle. Whether you are giving fishing a try for the first time, or returning to a childhood activity, these sites provide free tackle for loan. We hope that those making the loans will enjoy fishing so much that they are 'hooked for life'.

This equipment may also be loaned to groups conducting angler education programs in the community.
