|DGIF Fee Fishing Areas Reopening June 1As Virginia begins to slowly "reopen" parks and recreation areas that have been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DGIF has decided to reopen the three Fee Fishing Areas where hatchery trout are stocked (Clinch Mountain, Crooked Creek, and Douthat State Park). To minimize angler crowding, stocking days and time of day will be randomly determined, and not announced to the public. Requirements and regulations for the Fee Fishing Areas will remain the same. A Daily Permit will still be required to fish the Fee Fishing Areas during Free Fishing Days June 5–7, 2020. Anglers are reminded to practice social distancing as recommended by the CDC. This involves keeping at least 6 feet from other people, wearing a face covering, and washing your hands frequently. Above all else, if you feel sick or have flu-like symptoms, please stay home and plan to go fishing when you are feeling healthy. DGIF will monitor the activities at the Fee Areas and if angler crowding or behavior compromises the health/safety of the public or hatchery staff, DGIF may decide to close the Fee Areas.|
