Lake Wallenpaupack Visitors Center allows the public to borrow rods, reels and a tackle box full of hooks and other terminal tackle. This equipment can be borrowed in much the same way books are borrowed from a library.
Visitors wanting to borrow gear complete a form and supply a copy of your driver’s license for the Visitor Centers records and at the end of the loan period simply return the equipment.
This program is operated in partnership between the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, the American Sportfishing Association, and sponsors of the program.
Whether you are trying fishing a try for the first time, or returning to a childhood activity, these sites provide free loan of tackle in the hope those borrowing the tackle will enjoy fishing so much they become hooked on it life.
