"Best Of" Series: Best Place to Cast Your Line at a Virginia State Park

This is another segment in the "BEST OF" Virginia State Parks series where we asked our state park goers for their valuable feedback!
 
Virginia is blessed with a wide variety of great fishing, from native trout in the western mountains to monster striped bass in the Chesapeake Bay. And state parks give you access to the best the commonwealth has to offer.

Visit Virginia's Blue Ridge "It's hard to beat all the incredible fishing at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains!"
 
Donald Logan "I agree with Mike Melnyk III. We have a secret fishing hole there that not many people know about. Many childhood memories of mine are at Pocahontas."
 
Mike Melnyk III "is great for taking kids as well. Beautiful scenery, lots of water to explore by boat or foot, and lots of hungry brim, crappie, and bass. Keep it simple with nightcrawler and a bobber and the kids (and lucky adult who takes them) will have a blast."
 
Greg Lumpkin "Bear Creek Lake State Park is good for families with children since it has good shoreline access and a small dock/pier."
 
Jimmy Miller "First landing State Park. U have access to lynnhaven river and the bay. Saltwater fishing from a kayak without the danger of open surf. Very strong current though. respect and be safe."
 
Virginia Nicely "Douthat State Park"
