Maybe the Fourth of July holiday sneaked up on you, maybe you weren't sure what your plans would be, or maybe you've just been too busy to think of what you might want to do during the holiday weekend.

Regardless, if fishing might be or already is on your to-do list this weekend and you don't have your fishing license for this year, we've got some good news: You can EASILY get it on your phone within minutes -- like, even if you're already on the waters with fishing pole in hand. The digital age makes life so convenient, doesn't it?

In case you didn’t know, the state of Virginia requires anyone 16 years of age or older to have licenses and permits in order to go fishing in public waters. Those who are younger are exempt from fishing license requirements.

Having said that, click or tap here to get started on your license. It will only take minutes and you’ll have a a viewable/printable lice in hand. No waiting!

If you’re a nonresident who is visiting, it’s worth noting that one-day licenses are available.

Happy fishing!
