No license necessary to catch some fish in Virginia next week.

Virginia is letting anglers fish without a license for free next weekend.

The Virginia Marine Resources Commission and the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries are allowing sportsmen and women to fish between June 6 and June 8, no holds barred.

No fishing license of any kind will be required for recreational saltwater rod and reel fishing during free fishing days. All fishing regulations, including size, season, catch limits and gear restrictions, remain in effect.

After next weekend, annual freshwater and trout licenses are back up to $23 and annual saltwater fishing licenses are $17.50.
