Lake Biggins is located within one of the oldest public parks in Newport News. The pond is located on approximately three acres of the 60 acre park. Lake Biggins provides a scenic area for anglers to try their luck while being so close to urban areas of Newport News and Hampton. Shoreline access has been improved with the clearing of excessive brush that lined the banks. Fishing hours are daily from sunrise to sunset and vary according to the season.
For anglers interested in fishing some big water, the boat ramp to the James River is open 24 hours throughout the year. The James River Fishing Pier is a leased concession and is operated 24 hours a day from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
