Free fishing days

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia celebrates National Fishing and Boating Week with Free Fishing Weekend June 8 and 9. No license is required these two days, so if you are a lapsed angler or interested in learning, now is a good time to give it a try for free. Here is where anglers can renew their license: www.wvfish.com.

In addition, the DNR and conservation organizations are conducting fishing derbies for kids at locations around the state Saturday, June 8. 

Also: Romney Post 91 defeated perennial powerhouse Winchester Post 21 by the score of 8-1 on Tuesday evening. Romney was terrific defensively led by the outstanding performance of Eli Hott on the mound going 7.2 innings and surrendering just 4 hits with 0 earned runs. Frankfort’s Zack Whitacre finished with 3 hits and 3 RBI while Golden Tornado star Morgan Little had 2 hits and 2 RBI.
