The early bird gets the worm so spend the night at a comfy cabin or lodge and hit the water first thing. Need a boat? No problem. Many parks rent boats. Plenty of parks also offer pier, dock and shoreline fishing.
No matter the type of fishing you enjoy - trout, big lake, small lake, downriver, tidal river, even Chesapeake Bay and ocean fishing - you'll find what suits you at a Virginia State Park.
For more information on fishing at a particular park, select the park of interest then pick “Recreation” in the left menu. Fishing licenses are required at all parks except at the Kiptopeke and York River piers where a fee is charged to fish.
