Floating Fishing School Set for Four Virginia Lakes
It's summer and it's time for some fishing fun! Join a VDGIF Fisheries Biologist and the Angling Education Coordinator aboard "The Floating Fishing School," our 26' Sun Tracker pontoon boat provided by Bass Pro Shops & Tracker Marine for the Summer Fishing Series on four different lakes. Locations are:

Sandy River Reservoir Friday, June 07

Lake Orange Tuesday, June 11

Lake Frederick Wednesday, June 19

Lake Airfield Tuesday, June 25

VDGIF public fishing lakes are great places to fish for a variety of species. We will be fishing for whatever is biting: sunfish, crappie, catfish and bass. This event will be a great opportunity to enjoy a nice day on the water, learn the basics of fishing and fish biology.
