Early June is ordinarily a good time to go fishing.
By and large, waters are neither high nor low, cold nor warm. Daytime temperatures haven’t yet become insufferable. Perhaps most important, though, early June is when West Virginia holds its free fishing days.
This year’s free days are scheduled for June 8-9. Mark Scott, assistant chief in charge of fisheries for the state Division of Natural Resources, said it’s a perfect opportunity to get away from the TV, computer screen or handheld device and enjoy the outdoors.
“In today’s world, there are so many things going on,” Scott said. “Everybody is busy. There’s no better way to relax than to get out and do a little fishing.”
