Youth Trout Fishing!

Post Date:04/05/2019

Sponsored and Managed by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF), youth age 15 and under will be allowed to fish during April 1-June 15 in the “youth only pond”. Adults can assist youth only by baiting the hook, casting, and removing the fish from the hook. Adults cannot assist with setting the hook or retrieving the fish. The daily creel limit shall be 3 trout. Adults assisting youth are not required to have a fishing license or a trout license. Youth-Only Waters located at the pond by the office at Northern Fauquier Community Park will be stocked 2 more times, between April 1 and June 1. Stocking times may vary depending on the distance from the hatchery to the receiving water. VDGIF will strive to stock between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. DGIF may postpone or change the date of any of these stocking events due to circumstances that compromise the resource or public safety.
