Best Places to Fish Just In Time for the Holiday

The City of Newport News is featured in the 2016 edition of Fish Coastal Virginia, the official tourism fishing guide of Hampton Roads. The nine-page spread discusses how the City of Newport News is the perfect place for fishing due to the variety of fish available year round. Puppy drum, trout, striper, flounder, croaker, and striper are just a few of the fish to be caught in the waters around the city.
The article highlights Harwood’s Mill, James River Bridge Fishing Pier, James River Reserve Fleet, Lake Maury, and Leeward Marina as some of the places specifically great for fishing in Newport News. It also speaks of the King-Lincoln Park, Newport News Park, Newport News Park Discovery Center, and Victory Landing Park as additional access points for fishing and other fun activities.
