Trophy Fish Challenge

The Trophy Fish Challenge is a special event sponsored by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries to celebrate National Fishing Week. The challenge is to catch a trophy-size freshwater fish anywhere in Virginia during the National Fishing Week celebration. All anglers accomplishing this feat will receive a special event pin.

To be eligible to receive a pin all trophy fish must be registered with the Virginia Angler Recognition Program. Note that the application deadline for registering freshwater fish in this event is July 1st rather than 60 days from the date of catch, as in the program rules.

For more information call the Virginia Angler Recognition Program at (804) 367-1293.
