“These free fishing days are an incentive for families and friends to get outside and enjoy our natural resources,” John M. R. Bull, Virginia’s Marine Resources Commissioner, said. “Virginia is blessed with spectacular fishing opportunities and we work hard create and maintain our saltwater fisheries so anglers have good chances of landing some fish. This goes to the heart of our conservation efforts.”
