It's Hot Out There... Enjoy the Water Safely and Responsibly

This July 11th edition of the Outdoor Report posts just as Many Virginians are still cleaning up from the devastating derecho wind storm that blasted the state 13 days ago toppling trees and cutting off electric power to thousands for several days. This severe, fast moving storm was a stunning reminder of the unpredictable power of nature and the need to be prepared for emergencies both at home and when travelling. It was impressive to see the outpouring of support and neighbor helping neighbor spirit among those affected by the storm and many who did not have damage, volunteer to assist in a variety of ways across the Commonwealth. We hope you have recovered and are getting back to normal.
With the storm clean up done, a lot of us are now planning summer vacations or long weekend outings with family and friends. Fortunately there's a lake, river, or stream within an hour's drive from any location in Virginia, making it easy and economical to get away for a day on the water boating, fishing, relaxing and cooling off! When you purchase a fishing license, you not only buy quality time, but you also are investing in conservation. For less than the cost of a tank of gas, a family of four can fish for a year. The funds generated by boating and fishing are crucial to keeping Virginia's waterways and lands in good condition and managing the state's fisheries.

Remember, as you head for the water with the relentless heat wave and deepening drought, make sure you are well prepared to safely enjoy your travel and outdoor activities. Safety and courtesy are free, use them generously as you share the outdoors with others. Note the message from the Conservation Police Officers and the State Police to not drink and boat or drink and drive. These dedicated officers serve to protect responsible outdoor enthusiasts from those who act irresponsibly and break the law. They are there to protect your freedom to enjoy the outdoors - support them in their important work by setting a good example and seeing that others around you do their share to enjoy the outdoors safely and ethically.

The Outdoor Report is full of fishing and boating tips and information to make your outing more productive, enjoyable, and safe. To learn more about fishing and boating in Virginia, including where to fish, how to identify fish species, guides to lakes and rivers, fishing and boating regulations and much more, read on...
