Next weekend, June 2-4, everyone in Virginia is welcome to fish without a license. The Virginia Marine Resources Commission
is encouraging families to enjoy the state's natural resources, which we have plenty of right here in Newport News!
The license holiday applies to recreational rod and reel fishing but regulations including size and catch restrictions remain in effect.
Visit the Parks, Recreation and Tourism page
on the city website to find a list of different fishing locations in Newport News, ranging from saltwater fishing to freshwater fishing, along with the hours and fees. More information about the state’s fishing rules
can be found online at Virginia.gov as well as detailed information about how to obtain a regular fishing license
for when the free fishing days are over. For questions or for more information about fishing in Newport News call 757-926-1400.
