I will be in suffolk this week. I was wondering what types of fish are in the nansemond river and if I fish there will I have to have a saltwater license?

You can try Jones Creek Landing. There maybe some cat fish. There is a pier. I believe you do not need a license but double check on the VMRC website.

What saltwater species are in there? I may be moving to Suffolk, so I'd be interested in getting some new species that you don't find out here in the mountains...

Best thing to do is try behind the mickeys d's on main street.... its across from the hilton hotel... I catch pretty good perch and eel... which i use for bait to catch nice catfish... The also have monster carp, rockfish, and gar.... I believe u need a saltwater lic. even know every fish i just named was freshwater.... I use to catch croaker and spot out there but i havent in awhile....


Also you can try bennett creek... U need a saltwater lic... n ur catching puppy drum, nice sized croaker and spot, some cats, alot of crabs , perch and some rockfish...
closes at dusk opens at dawn

Lastly u can try sleep hole park in the back .... u need a saltwater lic.... NICE puppy drum SHHHHHHHHH keepers size, croaker, spot , cats and rocks....
closes at dusk opens at dawn

Goodluck
