Free Fishing Days in Virginia

Virginia Marine Resources Commissioner Jamie L. Green has announced that June 7-9, 2024, will be designated as Free Fishing Days across the Commonwealth.

During these dates, anglers are not required to possess a Saltwater Recreational Fishing License to fish in waters where such a license is normally mandated. This initiative aims to encourage participation in recreational fishing and to provide an opportunity for individuals to enjoy the state’s abundant marine resources.

Commissioner Green emphasized the importance of responsible fishing practices during Free Fishing Days, reminding participants to adhere to all other applicable fishing regulations and conservation measures.

“This initiative provides a wonderful opportunity for Virginians and visitors alike to experience the joy of fishing without the barrier of license fees,” stated Commissioner Green. “We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity while also respecting our marine ecosystems and regulations.”

Head boats, charter boats, rental boats, or fishing piers that typically charge a fee are excluded from this waiver.
