We hope you catch a big one! said Commissioner John Bull. We work tirelessly to create and maintain sustainable fisheries. Our conservation efforts are aimed at giving anglers a fair chance at landing some fish. As a result, the fishing in Virginia is terrific. Virginia Marine Resources Commission No fishing license of any kind will be required for recreational rod-and-reel fishing during free fishing days, except in designated stocked trout waters, where both a freshwater and trout license will be required. All fishing regulations including size, season, catch limits, and gear restrictions will remain in effect. We have some of the best rivers, lakes and streams for fishing in the country and we would love it if the non-fishing public would give it a try.

Freshwater fishing license holders can purchase an upgrade to a combination license for $26.75 and current saltwater fishing license holders can upgrade to a combination license for $26.20. “With the abundance of opportunities this year we recognize that customers who purchased licenses early may now wish they would have started with a combination license,” said Joplin. “With plenty of clams, shrimp, and salmon now available, this is a particularly good time for freshwater anglers to upgrade their licenses and take advantage of all our coasts have to offer.” By purchasing the upgrade, current freshwater license holders will gain access to saltwater fish, shellfish and seaweed. Current saltwater license holders who upgrade to the combo license will gain access to fishing in lakes and rivers as summer draws near, as well as opportunities for shellfish and seaweed. “Whether fishing from shore or boat, using spinning rods and bait, or casting fly lines, plentiful fish provide excellent reasons for saltwater anglers to upgrade and enjoy Washington’s lakes and streams,” said Chris Donley, WDFW inland fish program manager.
