Free Fishing Weekend in Virginia

It’s Free Fishing Weekend in Virginia through Sunday.

Grab a friend or your family and go drop a line in any state waters without the need for a fishing license.

If you are trying to find a location, head to the Department of Wildlife Resources website and check out their “Where to Fish” section.

The DWR is also hosting a few events around the state to teach anyone the basics of fishing.

The events are free and require no registration with the closest location at Burke Lake in Fairfax County.
