Why Fish Virginia?
Looking for some of the best trout fishing in the country? Trout anglers will be in heaven with the 2,900 miles of trout streams flowing throughout Virginia. And fly-fisherman will surely already have heard of Mossy Creek, one of the most famous fly-fishing spots in the state. Of course, you can also catch bass at Briery Creek Lake or The New River between Eggleston and Pembroke. And don’t skip out on Virginia Beach, where you’re liable to pull out striped bass, croaker, and white perch.
You do need a license, whether you are saltwater or freshwater fishing. But that can be purchased online through the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. Considering the fact that Virginia anglers pull in an average of over 6,000 trophy-size freshwater fish each year, this is definitely a destination not to be missed.
