Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is offering free fishing days. Due to inclement weather during the free fishing days in June, DGIF is offering two additional full days of free fishing September 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.
