Fish Boat PA
The official mobile app of the PA Fish & Boat Commission
Pennsylvania may have been named for its woods, but our waters are the real attraction. There are more than 86,000 miles of streams and rivers, along with 4,000 inland lakes and ponds covering 160,000 acres, plus 470,000 acres of Lake Erie. Great fishing and boating opportunities abound and many are close to you!

FishBoatPA is the official app from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. Whether you want to go fishing, explore waterways by boat, buy a fishing license, or simply enjoy the beauty of Pennsylvania’s aquatic resources, the FishBoatPA app provides the information and services you need.

This FREE application contains a variety of useful tools and information including:

  • Access to fishing and boating regulations
  • Near Me mapping feature for locating boating access points, stocked trout streams and lakes, and where to purchase fishing licenses
  • Trout stocking information
  • Fish identification tool
  • Trophy Case for logging and sharing your catches with friends

The app requires data access for some features.


Many Android users are NOT receiving a notification from the Google Play Store to update the FishBoatPA mobile app to the current version. If this is the case for you, simply uninstall and reinstall and you will have the latest version.

The current version (April 2019) is 5.0. To check your version, go to Settings > Apps or Application Manager > FishBoatPA. Scroll to the bottom to view the version.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your support as we work to deliver a better app experience.
