In support of Virginia’s Free Fishing Days and Grayson County’s Clean River Initiative, Grayson County Tourism, the Department of Wildlife Resources, New River Conservancy and the New River Wildlife & Conservation Club will sponsor a two-part New River fishing event from June 2-4.

Part 1 is “Fish of the NEW,” a riverside, outdoors, hands-on clinic where participants can see how DWR safely conducts fish surveys using electric shocking techniques, assist in on-shore data collection and recording with DWR biologists and staff and learn how the data is used, see the variety of fish in the riverside aquarium and learn about their habits and needs, and understand how water quality impacts fish populations and how we can improve the quality.
