Prince William Forest Park protects the South Fork of the Quantico Creek as well as 80% of the Quantico Creek Watershed. Within the park’s boundaries are approximately eighteen miles of streams and two impoundments which are open to the public for fishing. The water quality of park streams is very healthy and supports numerous fish species and other aquatic life. Most commonly found species include bluegill, pumpkinseed, largemouth bass, and channel catfish.
To help the park manage its resources, we ask that the public observe the following regulations.
Park waters are open to fishing year round, except when frozen waters do not permit fishing access from the shoreline.
Bass is limited to five per day with no minimum size.
The Northern Snakehead is an invasive species and has the potential to inflict damage to native fish species. Anglers may possess a snakehead only if they immediately kill it and notify Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (540) 899-4169 or (804) 367-2925 and Prince William Forest Park Biologist at 703-441-4108.
