PA’s Statewide Opening Day of Trout Season Kicks Off April 14

The price of a resident annual license is just $21 ($22.90 with fees); non-resident annual $51 ($52.90 with fees); and senior resident annual $10 ($11.90 with fees). Trout permits are $8 ($9.90 with fees).

Anglers can also buy multi-year licenses. A 3-year resident license can be purchased for $63 ($64.90 with fees), a 5-year for $105 ($106.90 with fees) and a 10-year for $210 ($211.90 with fees). Anglers can also buy multi-year trout/salmon, Lake Erie and combo permits and experience similar savings.

Anglers also can purchase an optional $5 metal button for an alternate way to display their license. The PFBC also offers a voluntary $1 youth fishing license ($2.90 with fees). For every youth license sold, the PFBC receives approximately $5 in federal funding, which is reinvested into youth fishing programs.

Anglers can share their support for opening day by visiting the PFBC’s Facebook event.

Licenses and buttons can be purchased at more than 900 licensing agents and online at

“Trout season is a great cure for cabin fever and an opportunity to get outside and enjoy the Commonwealth’s abundant natural resources,” Arway said.
