DGIF to offer free fishing days

Published 12:40 pm Thursday, September 12, 2019

Whether it’s stripers on the coast, trout in the mountains or anything in between, it is time to experience the fun of fishing in Virginia. Due to inclement weather during the free fishing days in June, the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) is offering two additional full days of free fishing, Sept. 28-29, in conjunction with National Hunting and Fishing Day.

Anyone can fish free in public fresh waters around the state without having to buy a fishing license. Just remember, all fishing regulations still apply. Note that a license is still required to fish in marine areas or saltwater portions of tidal waters.
