West Virginia is hosting Free Fishing Days this Saturday and Sunday, June 9th and 10th, 2018.
This is an annual program that gives residents and nonresidents a chance to fish for free in West Virginia.
“We love it,” said Laurie Berg, who was fishing with her daughter. “Almost every year we do it and its just an opportunity to have some fun and fish and enjoy the weather with my daughter.”
The free weekend in part of National Fishing and Boating Week.
“Free Fishing Days is a great opportunity for us to remind people why it’s so much fun to fish in West Virginia, especially with family and friends,” said West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Director Stephen McDaniel. “And this event isn’t just for new anglers. If you already have a license, bring a couple friends or your entire family and introduce them to a lifetime of outdoor enjoyment.”
