Fish Local VA

You don’t have to travel far to find great fishing—excellent fishing opportunities exist in your own backyard, even if you live in one of Virginia’s urban areas. Virginia DWR works closely with municipal, state, and non-governmental partners to establish quality fisheries in and around metropolitan areas throughout the state, stocking catfish, trout, largemouth bass, and sunfish in many of these waterbodies, providing a great chance to connect to the outdoors.
