Here's Why You Can Fish For Free In Virginia This Weekend

September 26, 2019

You can fish in Virginia waters for free this weekend. 

Because bad weather washed out previously-scheduled free fishing days in June, the state’s Department of Game & Inland Fisheries scheduled two additional days for Sept. 28 and 29. 

During designated days, anyone can fish for free in public water without purchasing a fishing license. 

Licenses are still required in marine or saltwater areas, the Associated Press reported.
