    Leesylvania State Park in Woodbridge has overnight boating on Friday and Saturday nights during the summer. Also in Woodbridge, E-Z Cruise marina will allow you to use thier ramp all night. In Stafford, Hope Springs marina used to allow overnight boating a couple years ago. I havent launched out of there in a couple of years so Im not sure if they still allow it.

    I hate going to places that you can't fish all night, There is a resevoir here in martinsville that is like that. What is the goal these people are trying to accomplish by not letting people fish at night, many times that is when the fishing is best IMHO.

    Carvins Cove here in Roanoke is like that. It sucks not being able to fish at night.

    Ya, I don't really understand the rule either. There are a couple of places around here that are like that, and it does not make sense. But, I suppose they want to keep folks from drinking and camping at night in areas that are not really suited for such activities.

    My years fishing the Potomac from the Maryland side has limited ramps open 24-7. I used the Fort Washigton Marina sevral times at night without any problems.
