Join the Waller Mill Park Angler’s Club!

Every year anglers canvas the state looking to wet a line and reel in their next big story. What they might not know is that one of the best fishing reservoirs in south-eastern Virginia is right here in our own backyard, Waller Mill Park! For those of you that do know, we invite you to join the Waller Mill Park Angler’s Club. This club was created to promote fishing for sport and fun at Waller Mill Park and hosts fun programs like our #WMPfish Photo Contest throughout the year.

All ages are welcome and can participate by fishing from one of our two fishing piers, bringing your own boat or renting a boat at the park. We hope you get a chance to come out and catch some big fish!

Membership in the Anglers' Club is free, but to qualify you must: complete the Angler’s Club application form and be in possession of a valid VA fishing license (if over 16).
