Free fishing weekend Sat, Sun in W.Va.


CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Anglers won't need a license to fish in West Virginia this weekend.

The Division of Natural Resources is allowing free fishing Saturday and Sunday for both residents and nonresidents as part of National Fishing and Boating Week.

DNR Director Frank Jezioro says people with licenses are being encouraged to introduce someone else to the fun of fishing.

Among events planned around the state Saturday are fishing derbies at the Bowden State Hatchery in Randolph County and Little Beaver State Park in Raleigh County.
