The 2010 Virginia General Assembly has authorized the Department of Game and
Inland Fisheries to issue a freshwater fishing and trout license at no cost to
disabled active duty military personnel who are receiving inpatient or
outpatient medical treatment from a hospital in Virginia, an adjoining state, or
the District of Columbia. This license is valid for one year and the holder of
the license is not eligible to receive a re-issue of this license.
