From the Director of the Division of Fish and Wildlife

Fishing Regulations Icon Delaware Fishing

The Division of Fish & Wildlife takes pride in scientifically managing fish populations for you, our angler customers. We will continue to work to provide you responsible fishing opportunities and fishing and boating access facilities as highlighted throughout this fishing guide.

We are also refocusing on expanding another equally important commitment to you, engaging and involving you in promoting and improving fishing in our great state.

Our annual photography contest presented provides an opportunity for you to promote fishing by sharing fishing experiences that could be featured on the cover of or in this annual guide. Our Take a Kid Fishing program and our annual Youth Fishing Tournament are great opportunities to not only get kids outdoors, but also to recruit new anglers as the future of fishing.

The Sport Fishing Tournament is being rejuvenated for you, with a fresh approach and new awards. Look for information this year on a special youth tournament division with youth-specific qualifying categories and awards.

Look for a new program for recreational anglers, a salt-water fish tagging program to train qualified volunteer anglers in fish tagging to generate additional scientific data on fish species to help the division sustainably manage fish populations and maximize fishing opportunities. Check for information on this exciting new program in the coming year.

As an avid Delaware angler for many years, I hope to see you on the water. Stay in touch, and “tight lines” this fishing season…
