Looking for a great way to connect with your family?
Discover just how much fun fishing can be when you do it together at a PFBC Family Fishing Program. Learn basic fishing skills like knot tying, casting, baiting the hook and taking a fish off the hook. You and your family will have the opportunity to fish – no fishing license required. All equipment provided. The “catch???” adults must bring a child and the children must bring an adult. You’ll be learning and fishing together.
Family Fishing Program
Upper Macungie Township Recreation
Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission
The family fishing program is a 4 hour educational fishing program designed to introduce or reintroduce families to the joy of angling. Half of the program is educational (knot tying, rules & regulations, casting practice, gear and tackle guidance.) The second half of the program is the fishing experience, it will be catch and release (license exempt). Parents must bring children, and children must bring parents. Everyone is learning and fishing together as a family to understand how this activity can be used for bonding time. The PFBC will provide all tackle and fishing equipment. We ask that participants bring your own bait- worms (red, night crawlers, or meal) whole corn kernels or even a package of hot dogs. Children must be 8 years old so they have the coordination and attention span to wholly participate. Must be a resident of Upper Macungie Township.
