RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Marine Resources Commission plans to waive the requirement for a recreational fishing license for one weekend.

The free fishing weekend will occur June 5 through June 7. It applies to freshwater and saltwater fishing licenses.

Licenses will still be required in designated stocked trout waters.

Officials say that all other fishing regulations, including size, season, catch limits and gear restrictions will remain in effect.
