Picture yourself along one of the many waterways in Hampton Roads, bait in one hand, fishing rod in another…sound like a place you’d like to be? This weekend you’ll have the opportunity to fish for free!

From June 1 to June 3, you can fish without having to pay for a fishing license or a facilities use permit, at most locations. You can recreational fish until your heart desires, while still following the fishing regulations regarding catch season, size, limits and gear.

“These free fishing days are an incentive for families and friends to get outside and enjoy our natural resources,” said Virginia’s Marine Resources Commissioner Steven Bowman in a press release.

Want to fish but not sure of the best spots? Here’s a guide to to some local fishing locations.
