June 3, 4, and 5, 2016 have been designated as Free Fishing Days in Virginia. No fishing license of any kind will be required for rod and reel fishing in freshwater or saltwater, except in designated stocked trout waters, on these days. Plan some time to go fishing and boating; take the family fishing and boating or learn to fish and boat! See our Where to Fish section to get started!
(A one-year Virginia fishing license costs $23; children under 16 years old do not need licenses. More about VA fishing licenses)
