Little Beaver Fishing Derby (Free Fishing Weekend!)

June 8 June 9

West Virginia’s Free Fishing Weekend is back Saturday, June 8, and Sunday, June 9.

During these two days, residents and non-residents are able to fish in West Virginia for free. The annual event gives novice and returning anglers the opportunity to fish without a license. The WVDNR participates in several activities during National Fishing and Boating Week and Free Fishing Weekend. A long-running youth fishing derby will take place on June 8 at Little Beaver State Park near Beckley.

Show your kids how much fun fishing is by bringing them to the free fishing derby! Kids should bring their own fishing gear and must be registered by an adult in order to participate and win prizes.
