West Virginia residents can now buy five-day fishing licenses.

Division of Natural Resources Director Bob Fala says the new license is intended to allow fishing opportunities for residents who may be on vacation, are fishing for the first time or are returning to the sport.

The license is available online at or at licensed agents across the state.

The new license costs $8. It is good for five consecutive days chosen by the buyer and specified on the license.

Annual resident state fishing licenses cost $19.
