Foxy likes fishing!

Beginning on Friday, October 8, 2010, the waters of Lake Fairfax will teem with a fresh stock of rainbow trout. Friday’s 1,000 pound stocking will mark the start of a two-week trout season at the park which ends on October 22.

Fishermen will appreciate the abundance of above average size fish. (The smallest fish will be one-foot in length.) Fishing at the park is open from dawn until dusk. An accessible fishing pier provides a safe place to cast a line for enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.

A Virginia fishing license is required for all fishermen age 16 and older. Because the fish were purchased by Fairfax County, the state trout stamp doesn’t apply. The 2010 seasonal fishing pass for the park is also required, or a daily pass can be purchased. Daily passes are available for $12 per adult (16 to 63 years), $10 per senior (64 years and older) and $10 per child (7 to 15 years).

Only one pole is allowed in the water at a time, and the daily catch limit is six fish per person. Fishermen are expected to keep what they catch. The local game warden will be present.

Lake Fairfax Park is located at 1400 Lake Fairfax Drive in Reston.

For more information, please contact Lake Fairfax Park at 703-471-5415.
