Are you looking for something fun the whole family can do that won’t cost a dime? Why not take them fishing this weekend in Tennessee and Virginia. Both states are offering freebies!
In Virginia, June 5, 6, and 7, 2015 have been designated as free fishing days. No fishing license will be required for rod and reel fishing in fresh or salt water. However, you’ll need some credentials to fish in designated trout waters on these days. For more information about free fishing days in Virginia, check out the following link: http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/fishing/free-fishing-days/
Meanwhile, Tennessee’s annual Free Fishing Day is Saturday, June 6. Anyone may fish free without a license in the state’s public waters. Free Fishing Day and Week apply to Tennessee’s public waters, TWRA owned and operated lakes, and state park facilities. For more information visit the TWRA website at www.tnwildlife.org.
Both states hope by offering free fishing days more people would become interested in the sport.
