FRANKLIN LAKE, a popular recreation location in Purcellville.




Fishing in Franklin Park is popular with folks of all ages.



A wonderful fishing lake is right here in Purcellville in Loudoun County, Virginia.  FRANKLIN PARK,  just west of downtown Purcellville.  If you don't have a license, you can get one online.  Of course, if you need fishing gear and want to save some cash, visit Dicks Sporting Goods at Dulles Town Center Shopping. 

There are fish in Franklin Park Lake.  I've caught them.  I took a family with me one summer afternoon and Jack (2 years old) and Hanna (11 years old) caught lots of Bluegill.  You can fish from the banks or from the fishing piers on both sides of the lake.  The lake is stocked with Largemouth Bass and Bluegill, perfect fish for an afternoon of adventure for the youngsters.

Careful Jack.  That hook is sharp.                                          
Hanna can cast almost like a pro.

Fishing Piers at Franklin Park

Catching fish at the lake in Franklin Park is easy from the fishing piers.  Dad enjoyed it too.

I use my trusty bamboo fly rod and even a little Bluegill is fun to catch.

Lenn, I have not gone fishing in a very long time and it is something I enjoy doing and find relaxing.  We have a couple of small lakes and ponds around me, so maybe this Summer will be a good time to try to get some fishing in again.

George.  Don't let the time pass you by.  Just do it.

Good for the soul.

Lenn...Fishing is really such a fun family outing and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg for all the hours you are able to do it.

William.  That's a fact.  One can spend as much or as little as we wish depending on the type of fishing we do.

Franklin Park is no more for me than my annual fishing license, $7.50 I believe.  Time to get one for this year. 

I need just about 10 degrees more warmth for comfort.

Hi Lenn - It is getting to be that time. Mary has been eyeballing our lake, looking for any signs of activity, and I know she's eager to get down there.

Dick.  You have no idea how many times I could have kicked myself for not buying a home with a pond or small lake. 

That said, I'm find with local lakes and if I want more, I head for Buggs Island Lake, or Smith Mountain Lake.

Lenn, fishing is so much fun and with bluegill you are guaranteed lots of fun and action.  It is so nice that Franklin Park in Loudon County, VA offers this adventure!  There is nothing in this world comparable to the first fish caught by a child!

Bruce.  Indeed.  Children don't always have the patience for some fishing, but even a 5 inch bluegill will give them a thrill.
