Free Fishing Days set for June 6-8
For three days next month, June 6-8, everyone can fish for free in Virginia.
“This is a great opportunity to discover the joy of fishing and boating,” said Steven G. Bowman, commissioner of Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC), which regulates saltwater fishing. “Fishing is a wholesome recreational activity that produces memories that can last a lifetime. A day on the water gives a better appreciation for our natural environment, which helps us all become better stewards of our marine resources.’’
No fishing license of any kind will be required for recreational rod and reel fishing on those days, except in designated stocked trout waters.
