Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources is opening up the state's rivers and streams for free fishing this weekend.

The two-day event caps off a series of events as part of this week's national fishing and boating week.

This weekend, residents and nonresidents can fish without first obtaining a license.

DNR Director Frank Jezioro said the free weekend is meant to remind people that fishing is a fun pastime that can last a life time.

The DNR will be co-sponsoring fishing derbies on Saturday at the Bowden Hatchery in Randolph County and Little Beaver State Park in Raleigh County.
