That fee is not for using it on public waters but instead for using PFBC launches and facilities. If you have a cottage along the Susky for instance and keep one at your place you don't have to pay a fee. If you use the Whites Ferry Launch to put it in the water you need the sticker.

It's the same for pontoons, un-powered  watercraft, you need it on state park waters as well.

The, government, governor or our state congresspeople don't get the money, or have anything to say about it. In PA the PFBC and the game commission are autonomous agencies. They make their own rules and laws independent of political party politics. The money in their budgets cannot be borrowed or used for other purposes by the gov or the state congress. The real reason that non-powered craft have to pay up is because of fairness. If a guy with a Jon boat and a three HP kicker has to buy a license a guy with a 12 ft canoe or a kayak should too. Those licensing, and permit fees are used directly buy the PFBC to pay for launches, parking lots and dams on our lakes and ponds. Sportsmen in PA pay their own way.

I know that I am late to the topic here but regarding being in the yak fishing for a long time, I don't recommend that.  I recommend stopping occasionally and getting out - stretching the legs - even fishing from shore for a while.  Makes for a much more pleasant outing in my opinion.
