Mandatory Cold Weather Life Jacket Wear Ends for 2020


Beginning May 1st, PFDs are no longer required to be worn while paddling, each person is still required to have a PFD with them while paddling

Although wearing a PFD is always a good idea and you are required to have one on your watercraft for each person that is on-board, the risk of shock and drowning is greatly increased during cold weather. Therefore, Pennsylvania's Fish and Boat Commission requires all people on canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards to wear a PFD between November 1 through April 30. Starting March 1, PFDs are only required to be worn by children age 12 and younger while on canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards.
