Free Fishing Days Offered Over Weekend

FARMVILLE — The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries has designated June 5, 6, and 7 as Free Fishing Days in the state, as noted in a online statement released this week.

“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,” the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries said in their online release.

Normally a fishing license in Virginia could cost a person anywhere from $9 to $555, depending on what type of license one is looking to obtain.
