Here’s a last-minute opportunity for free family fun this weekend.

The City of Richmond Parks Department’s Free Family Fishing Fair will be held as planned tomorrow (June 1) from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Byrd Park’s Shield’s Lake, and experts will be on hand to teach basic freshwater catch and release fishing. Those younger than age 15 will not need a fishing license to participate, however, anyone age 16 or older will need a license to fish.DSC_0564

 
Virginia’s Free Fishing Weekend is June 7, June 8, and June 9. Adults as well as children are encouraged to attend the department’s event to help teach their children how to fish and to go fishing the following weekend, June 7 – June 9,  when no fishing license is needed.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
