2. Shenandoah National Park

NY Lake

Fishing in Virginia

Covering a massive 80,000 acres of lush and picturesque western Virginia land, the Shenandoah National Park proves to be an anglers paradise. You'll find close to 70 different mountain streams, ponds, and lakes at Shenandoah – all yielding their share of bass, trout, and muskie. Make the drive in from nearby cities like Luray, Culpeper, Harrisonburg, or Ruckersville and enjoy a day of casting, lading, and reeling 'em in. 

3. Sandy Bottom Nature Park

Out in coastal Virginia, near Newport News, check out the Sandy Bottom Nature Park for excellent fishing opportunities.

4. Cape Charles Beach

Continue exploring the towns, cities, and fishing spots of coastal Virginia – make your way to Cape Charles Beach.

5. Buckroe Beach

Just east of Hampton along the VA coast, you'll find Buckroe Beach, home of the Buckroe Fishing Pier. Jutting out into the stunning waters of the Chesapeake Bay, the Buckroe Fishing Pier is an ideal way to spend the day fishing in Virginia.
